From Powerboat Guide:
Anyone who’s been around the boat business for any length of time knows that Tiara “gets it” when it comes to building a quality product. A big part of the company’s success over the years has come from their Open series of inboard express cruisers, dual-purpose boats that split the difference between fishing and cruising. Unlike her predecessors, however, the 3300 Open is more at home in the family cruiser role where her expansive cockpit and deluxe accommodations will be most appreciated. Below decks, her teak-trimmed interior includes berths for six in a cabin of unusual elegance and luxury. A private forward stateroom—rare in a 33-footer—contains a double berth, and the starboard lounge converts to upper and lower pipe berths. The huge cockpit of the 3300 came standard with aft-facing jump seats, cockpit bolsters, wash-down, and transom door. An optional fishing package included an insulated fish box, tackle center, and sink with cutting board. The entire bridge deck lifts electrically for engine access. Note the tall, super-sturdy windshield and wide side decks. Twin 350hp inboard gas engines cruise at 22 knots (30+ knots top)
The Tiara 3300 Open express was in production 1988-1997 and is equipped with bench seats at the helm. The windshield is equipped with an opening center vent (the holdup mechanism is striped and not working and wiper missing). The helm is covered with a newer white canvas Bimini supported by stainless steel frames and the radar arch. The salon is down three steps with the galley on the port side. The dinette on the port side drops to form a double berth and the settee on the starboard side forms stacked berths. The V-berth forward contains a double berth on the starboard side and a hanging locker. The head is located aft in the salon on the starboard side.
The vessel is equipped one head located on starboard side and contains a sink, 12volt Crown Raritan toilet and a wraparound curtain for the shower. The shower sump is located under the floor with a 12V pump. The system consists of one 12 volt Crown Raritan toilet with a plastic holding tank in the engine room that is emptied through a deck service fitting located on the starboard deck labeled “WASTE” or a 12 volt Macerator pump for pumping when offshore. This system is approved only with the overboard discharge valves secured in the closed position.
The galley is located aft in the salon on the port side and is equipped with the following: Sink : Round stainless steel Refrigerator: Norcold Teak II AC/DC under the counter refrigerator built into the cabinets Stove: Princess 2 burner electric surface stove. Microwave: Microwave mounted in the galley cabinets
