General Details

“Lady Sher” is a beautiful example of Tiara’s popular 3900 Sovran. This Tiara has all of the right equipment beginning with the largest available engine package; twin Volvo D-6 IPS 500s @ 370 hp each. With 225 engine hours and 170 generator hours, “Lady Sher” is a low use vessel. 32,000 BTUs of air-conditioning coupled with a custom sliding door helm enclosure provide comfort while cruising even when the weather is not cooperating. Other options of merit include: ACR Dual Beam Spotlight (bow), Maxwell 800 rope/chain windlass, bow sun pad with molded head rest and cup holders, 2012 upper & lower cockpit floor coverings, fresh & raw water wash down, cockpit stereo with IPod Dock, Electronics Package (see below for details) and solid Teak & Holly cabin sole. 

“Lady Sher” is a two owner Naples, FL vessel. The original owner kept her in inside storage at Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club. The current owner purchased her in January of 2012. Both owners used her almost exclusively as a day cruiser. The interior shows like new with no visible signs of wear on the cabin sole, seating surfaces nor the master berth. The exterior gel coat is shiny and is free of scratches. Being kept inside most of her life along with many generous coats of wax really shows how well this vessel has been kept. The engine room is clean and free of corrosion.

NOTE:  Volvo originally designed the IPS engines with a sea-strainer that was prone to leaking from the strainer lid. Many of the 2006 to 2008/9 Volvo IPS vessels underwent corrosion issues due to this leaking. Volvo has since redesigned the sea-strainer lids and most older IPS vessels have been retrofitted with the new lids, but many still show signs of corrosion from the leaking. “Lady Sher” was refitted with Groco bronze sea-strainers when brand new as the issues with leaking where known at the time, but the new Volvo sea-strainer lids were not yet available. This Tiara 3900 Sovran has never had a leaking sea-strainer issue and there are no signs of corrosion on the alternators or engine mounts as is typical on other Volvo IPS vessels between 2006 and 2008/9.

Broker's Comments
Many buyers dream of purchasing a very lightly used vessel just a few years old but in new condition for a fraction of the original MSRP. While many vessels claim to have light use and low hours, upon viewing they tend to disappoint in one or several areas. “Lady Sher” is truly a low hour, lightly used vessel in excellent condition both mechanically and cosmetically. In my opinion (18 years of Tiara sales experience), this is the nicest and cleanest 2008 3900 Sovran available on the market. We have set an aggressive price for a timely sale.  She will not last long. Call today for an appointment. I am a 18 year Tiara Yachts sales veteran, so I am very familiar with this and all Tiara models. Please feel free to call me with questions regarding this or any Tiara model.                       ONCE IN A LIFETIME DEAL!  DON'T MISS OUT!
