Description & Construction
The custom Tiara windshield is made of composite fiberglass that blends beautifully with the lines of the boat. This new method of windshield construction is revolutionary in the marine industry and is engineered to eliminate the corner pilasters. A center ventilating section with power actuator is great for airflow while idling and a helm air option is available for added comfort. The transition to the fore deck is easy with grab rails and a sturdy one-piece welded bow rail. Other features include three aluminum deck hatches with screens and privacy covers, flush forward anchor locker with overboard drain, and a fiberglass molded-in bow pulpit with standard S.S. roller assembly. An optional windlass is also available. Donna Gayle is constructed with a water barrier outer gel-coat layer and hand laid fiberglass with a special formulated resin. Wood and foam core stringers are vacuum sealed and encapsulated with hand laid fiberglass and integrated into the hull. The seacocks and all underwater through-hull fittings are made of bronze, and a hull side exhaust system is used. The 3800 has six oval custom opening port lights with screens for great ventilation and natural light while below deck.
Salon, Galley & Stateroom
As you walk down a few steps your galley is to port with beautiful honey oak wood in very good shape. There is a bunk that pops up the U-shaped dinette, with table and storage compartments below. This converts to a double berth and also has a Pullman style berth connecting to the overhead. The cabin of the 3800 Open is spacious and comfortable, featuring a double pedestal berth forward with plenty of storage below, hanging lockers, and hull side shelves. The head can be accessed from either the owner's stateroom or the salon. It has Corian counter tops with sink, mirrored vanity, storage locker, and is a full fiberglass head with a separate shower stall including sliding door and sump pump. The galley is well thought-out and features Corian counter tops, stainless steel double sink with pressure water system, recessed two-burner electric cook top, built-in coffee maker, microwave oven and Subzero refrigerator/freezer. There is a lot of storage with 3 utensil drawers, under counter storage and a bank of upper dish lockers.
