"The Tiara 2900 Open is a well-built, comfortable boat with plenty of room for family and guests. She is also rugged enough for the serious sportsfisherman and thanks to her 11’4” beam she has extra stability." - Boat Test 

Tangled up in Blue has enjoyed quality annual maintenance and storage at Portland Yacht Services under her seller's stewardship. She's a maneuverable, twin-screw vessel with iconic Tiara style and seaworthiness. This 2900 would make a great weekend cruiser for a couple, small family, or a great toy to get you out reeling in those fish!  

"Tiara is a US/ Michigan-based boat builder and has been around since the 1950s when founder, Leon Slikkers, left the joinery department of the classic boat builder Chris-Craft to set up his own yard. His boats were called Slickcraft and he was on the cutting edge of fibreglass boat construction. By 1963, all Slickcraft boats were built out of fibreglass. Today’s Tiara hulls have Vinylester laminates coated with epoxy... When they build a Tiara all the parts are the best they can find and to some extent they overbuild their vessels, so they are going to last." -Yacht and Boat by Yatco: Tiara 2900 Cruiser Review 



"The Tiara 29 has a good balance between deck and saloon space. By being the smallest vessel in a range there is always the temptation to steal from the deck space to make room down below, but this is essentially a day/overnighter so the most important areas are up top.

The resulting layout is a hardtop covered wheelhouse area with a raised L-shape lounge across from the twin-seated helm. Behind this is a step-down cockpit serviced by an aft facing lounge, wide combings and a lift up lounge along the transom. There is a wide, solid and well hung inward opening transom door with overbuilt stainless steel latches and hinges that typify the excellent overall build quality of the Tiara.

The walkways forward are generous and the flared bow rail extends aft to provide plenty of grab holds when moving about the vessel. At the bow, the well-built theme continues with solid stainless steel cleats, a windlass and a stainless steel lined pulpit for the anchor. The tidy helm is equipped with a range of instruments covering oil pressure, fuel, temp, volts, tach and a compass. There are switches for the windlass and lighting and a VHF Radio. The big boat dual controls for throttle and gears take a little getting used to but it reduces the chance of ending up in the wrong gear at the wrong time. Helm seating is comfortable, spacious and provides good visibility and the whole console lift s up to provide rear access to the electrics." -Yacht and Boat by Yatco: Tiara 2900 Cruiser Review 



The layout has the shower/head located just outboard and to port of the companionway stairs. This reserves the rest of the saloon as open to the galley, forward berth and a Starboard Ultra Leather settee. Although there is not a tremendous amount of space down below, the Tiara 2900 manages to fit a lot in and does so with class. Aft of the forward facing settee is additional bulk storage space. 

At the foremost bulkhead below deck is a smartly placed mirror, doubling natural light and aiding is making the compact living quarters appear larger. There are comfortable upholstered bolsters along the forward berth sides. This double berth is expanded easily with a small flip-up insert at her point of entry. Between the berth and galley is a deep, cedar-lined, hanging locker. 

The galley has ample bench space and features a single burner, electric cook top, fridge, single basin stainless steel sink, microwave, drawer storage below and ample storage in sliders outboard. Other features include the shore powered air-conditioning and a Clarion sound system. Natural light comes from portholes and deck hatches and night lighting is mostly mounted overhead. There is no doubt that the conservative teak marine finishes below will endure the test of time. 'Tangled up in Blue's soft good quits were dry-cleaned for a fresh start to this 2022 boating season. 


The Tiara 29 was powered by twin 6lt 330hp, freshwater cooled/heat exchanger Crusader engines. I must admit that it was quite a change seeing blue as opposed to black down below, particularly for an American petrol-powered boat. These Chevy based engines are new to Australia but in America they provide good competition for MerCruiser. The 6lt EFI Crusader delivers similar power to the MerCruiser 6.2lt EFI engine.

Access to the engine room involves moving one cushion and then flicking a switch that lifts the floor, revealing an engine room fitted out to a high standard. All hoses are double clamped and access around the engines is good. The freshwater cooling will ensure a longer engine life and the double rear mounts help control engine vibrations. This, combined with good engine room insulation, produces a quiet ride at speed. The engines drive through Aqamet shaft s and spin Neebral bronze propellers. Overall, this well built American vessel is at the top of its class. The petrol engines may not be as efficient as a couple of diesels but they certainly deliver the power that makes this craft an absolute joy to drive.

The Tiara 29 is powered by twin 6lt 330hp, freshwater cooled/heat exchanger Crusader engines. The 6lt EFI Crusader delivers similar power to the MerCruiser 6.2lt EFI engine.

In calm conditions with two adults onboard the Tiara 29 has been recorded to produce the following speed-to-rpm figures: 4 knots @ 800 rpm, 7.5 knots @ 1600 rpm, 22.5 knots @ 3700 rpm, 24 knots @ 4000 rpm, 27.5 knots @ 4400 rpm, 29.5 knots @ 4750 rpm.
