Captain's ReportThe Tiara 2900 Open is a versatile, reasonably priced 29-footer. She is a well-built package ideal for family fun, while substantial enough for serious fishing action.At 10,700 pounds, she’s quick to jump up on plane, and fuel-efficient to boot. The hull and decks on the boat are hand laid — the resulting surface is smooth as glass, with no distortion or finish blemishes. It’s a long-term payoff, since these structures are much less likely to suffer from stress cracking, blistering, or delamination problems in later years.The 2900 Open really comes alive when you fire up its twin 320-hp Crusaders. You’ll cruise comfortably at 30.2 mph; but when it’s time to impress your friends, push the throttles forward for a top end of 35.8 mph. Fuel consumption at best cruise is just 27-gph; 50-gallons wide open for a maximum cruising range of about 200 miles.With plenty of room and amenities for family and guests, she’s also rugged enough for the serious sport fisherman. And best of all, she’s priced to make it easy for you to join the Tiara family.For more information call Tiara Yachts or visit www.tiarayachts.com.
