Super Clean Vessel! Owner wants her sold as he is a two boat owner. Don't miss out on this amazingly maintained weekender! She's a real gem.
The 2900 Coronet is feature packed. As a multi-purpose boat the 2900 is great for fishing or just entertaining, thanks to her 114-square foot cockpit. As far as performance is concerned s
One of the first things you'll notice about the Coronet is her transom--it's rounded, not square as in most open-type fishing boats. The curve gives the boat a little sex appeal, but from a practical standpoint it diverts water smoothly around the hullsides when the boat is in reverse. This design--combined with the integral swim platform and ladder--will keep anglers from getting soaked when backing down hard on a fish. In addition, the heavy-duty transom door--with rugged stainless steel hardware--does not extend all the way down to the platform and cockpit-sole level. Rather, it sits atop a step between the two which keeps sea water out of the cockpit. If the cockpit does take on water, it quickly drains via two scupper tubes that exit along the hullsides--not the transom--way aft. Again, this is to prevent water from entering the cockpit while backing down.
As for amenities, the Coronet's cockpit is not tournament-ready but it's fine for casual day trips. Tiara's famous diamond-pattern nonskid is here and on all deck surfaces, and four Lee rod holders are an option for the gunwales. Another option is twin L-shaped benchseats that come out in seconds simply by pulling four quick-release pins. Behind these seats are two removable tilt-out stowage boxes built into the transom, and these are handy since you don't have to go out on the swim platform to access your docklines, fenders, and other gear. Bigger-boat touches here include stainless steel hawsepipes for the stern lines, and the standard cockpit bolster pads are at mid-thigh height (27-inches) for security when gaffing a fish or simply retrieving a lost hat.
While there is no insole fishbox, I appreciated the gasketed hatch that provides direct access to the fuel lines and shutoff valves atop the single fuel tank. Other pluses include a two-person aft-facing benchseat for watching baits and an optional cockpit shower.
Moving forward, the 2900 Coronet differs from most Tiaras in its deck design. Instead of being raised, the bridge deck is at the same level as the cockpit, so it's a straight, level walk from transom to cabin. But like most Tiaras, there's no need to fumble with engine hatches--the bridge deck tilts up using a single-ram electro-hydraulic lift to reveal the twin inboards below.
Our test boat had a pair of Crusader 454XL is in the compartment which was finished in white gelcoat throughout. Prop pockets in the hull allow a straight inboard powertrain configuration, and dripless shaft seals are standard equipment. While it was an easy reach to the dip sticks, oil filters, and cooling-water reserve tanks, it's tough to get at the starboard fuel filter since it's way outboard. Fortunately, there's a hatch in the bridge deck for headroom while you're in the compartment, so you can easily walk forward between the engines and then turn around and reach anything you want. All wires are neatly bundled and wrapped, and hoses are double-clamped for safety.
Back up top, the bridge deck has a raised L-shaped lounge to port with a smartly designed chart table/stowage area forward, and a helm seat and refreshment console to starboard. The console has a cold-water sink and icebox. Though it lies beneath a combination of hinged, "starboard" covering boards that fold in an awkward way, the console is functional and provides a big cutting-board area when not in use.
Up forward, the helm console is traditional Tiara. It tilts aft for easy electronics installation and maintenance, and features VDO instruments and rocker switches right at your fingertips. The reach to the Morse controls is easy, and though the stainless steel wheel does not tilt, it's fine for either sitdown or standup driving. The entire area is protected by a rugged, three-panel windshield that's custom made for Tiara, and the deflector on top sent wind flying over my head even while standing.
It's two-steps down through a 20-inch wide companionway to get to the cabin. Though the Coronet is technically a day boat, that doesn't mean Tiara skimped on the interior craftsmanship or treatments. The sole is teak-and-holly, and shelves and countertops are trimmed in maple for a wood-on-white look. All pop-out latches lock securely, and locker doors are hung with stainless steel hinges.
The cabin is functional but basic. The Coronet sleeps two in a forward V-berth (great for naps), and the galley is limited to a cold-water sink and single-burner stove but plenty of undercounter stowage space. Likewise, the head--though fully enclosed--is basic with just a sink, fixed head, and mirror. But remember the boat's purpose; for day trips or even a dockside overnighter, this is about all you'll really need.
As far as performance is concerned, the Coronet hopped onto plane in less than four seconds with minimal bow rise. Once on plane, her steering was very light to the touch, and she spun a tight, 360-degree turn at speed in just three boat lengths. Though she has a smooth ride with no tendency to pound and good lateral stability both at speed and at rest, the Coronet is not a particularly quiet boat, registering 97 decibels at wide open throttle. Against that, her top speed of 37 mph should be plenty for most family outings, and her handling is so predictable that both you and the kids will have fun when its your turn to take the wheel.
- Manufacturer Provided Description
- The Tiara 2900 Coronet has versatility, wide-open cockpit space, and plenty of options. Whether monitoring the gauges, checking the oil, or reaching for a cold drink, the 2900 Coronet was designed for easy access to all the integral areas - helm, engine and wet bar. While designed to be a multipurpose day boat, the 2900 Coronet - with it's 6-foot 4-inch V-berth, mini galley, and private head - also provides enough room and comfort for overnight stays. The custom-welded aluminum windshield, standing six feet over the cockpit sole and 32 inches over the helm, provides enough coverage to keep passengers dry even in the roughest of waters. Tiara's smallest vessel includes cleats, hawse pipes, grab rails, hinges, hatches, and doors that would be standard in boats of much greater size.
