Excellent cruising or fishing boat that is solidly built and equipped for all day comfort! Easy to operate. Ready for exploring the Keys!
This rare 1989 Tiara Yachts 3100 Convertible is equipped and ready for days of fun cruising, diving, fishing, and relaxing in the Florida Keys. Comes with a paddle board for your party's enjoyment.
The forward cabin berth sleeps 2 adults comfortably and can be closed off from the galley and dinnette for privacy.
The galley has a refrigerator, sink, microwave (requires generator** or shore power), cabinets, and dish ware. The dinette is across from the galley and seats 4-6. The dinette can be converted to a berth that sleeps 2.
Aft of the galley is an enclosed wet head with toilet, sink, and hot/cold fresh water shower. She holds 40 gallons of fresh water allowing for a nice rinse after a swim.
The salon has a lower helm that allows operation out of the sun or during foul weather. A television with HD antennae is to port (for use with generator** or shore power).
Spacious cockpit with folding teak chairs is a great place to relax while underway or socialize once anchored off.

Great times on Chris’s boat. He gave our family of 4 great direction on how to successfully see parts of the keys for a day trip and overnight stay. Here are a few takeaways so you are aware:
- boat is in great shape for its age and is well kept
- if you stay overnight, make sure you bring the gear to do so
- if you plan on traveling a distance, fuel is not cheap at 4.85/gallon. For a day of cruising, it was an additional $370 just so you know what to expect
Thanks to Chris and the boat, we were able to maximize our time in the keys.
And another great family weekend just me and the kids. Down Time ran great. Smooth ride, best view ever from the fly bridge. Beautiful snorkeling at the Christ of the Abyss. Kids loved the entire cruise. Plenty of room for all of us to overnight comfortably. Thanks Chris !!! You are the best!! Always on time, boat is always pristine ready to go.
I can't say enough about Christopher's hospitality and customer service! Top notch! A+ I have to agree with the other reviewer Paul. Christopher went to extremes to take care of us--he's the kind of guy you can count on in a pinch! The boat is well-maintained and very easy to maneuver. We had an excellent time diving in the Key Largo area. I highly recommend this boat! We would definitely rent it again!
Our family had a fantastic time on Chris' boat. Chris was very patient and did a detailed walkthrough with me prior to starting the trip and upon return. He was very flexible and accommodating. His boat is vey well maintained. The waters in the keys are awesome! Will definitely rent from Chris again. Highly recommended. Thanks Chris!
Christopher went to extremes to take care of us--he's the kind of guy you can count on in a pinch! The boat, if you've never been on one like this is fantastic! The only thing that can ruin a week on the water is too much sun the first day. Spend all day/night on the water at you favorite reef or fishing spot--get a break from the sun & heat with COLD A/C! Easiest driving boat I've ever maneuvered; rotates precisely at idle speed for pro-looking docking & takes sharp, hard turns at full throttle (30mph) without any possibility of a rollover. I love cruising at about 1050 RPM (quiet, peaceful, economical). Snorkle, dive, fish & cruise with more water time on your next trip! This boat is the bomb! Thanks Chis!
Plan was to take my 3 kids and girlfriend for a 3 day cruise in the keys to include snorkeling, fishing and hang out for 2 overnights at anchor. Chris was extremely accommodating. The boat runs like a dream and had all the amenities necessary for a 3 day cruise. My family had a BLAST. I was in heaven. Thank you Chris for making my dream to do this with my family a reality. We will certainly be back. Chris is one of those rare human beings that is kind, understanding, helpful and genuinely a nice guy. Oh and the boat is located just a short 40 minute drive from west Miami (turnpike). Take the plunge....you will be happy you did.
Chris is a knowledgeable captain and a spectacular host. The Tiara is a classic and is well cared for. This is a good boat for a large group, with plenty of different places to enjoy cruising. You can ride on the bow, relax up high on the flybridge, or sit in the medium-sized cockpit. It has a nice dive platform too should you wish to dive, and some road holder should you try some fishing. The interior and galley is quite large, should a whole group need to seek cover from a heavy rain. I would bareboat charter it again and would enjoy meeting Christopher again. A special note is that Chris was very helpful at every step, starting from the reservations procedures, to the shore logistics at both departure and arrival.
Christopher was extremely nice and had everything on the boat that one could need and more. He keeps the boat in great condition. We only had an issue with a new Anchor system that was recently installed but I'm sure he will get that issue resolved. He even threw in a new dingy that we could use to go in shallow areas. The Atlantic ocean can be brutal so I highly suggest against towing the dingy for a long haul over the ocean but the Gulf side is fine. This is a big boat that is wide and tall, a lot of boat to handle so be prepared, be safe and have some responsible fun.
