Conservatively styled and elegantly appointed, the Tiara 4300 Open was one of the largest production sport boats available when she was introduced. Built on a beamy modified-v hull, the Open has enough built-in luxury to satisfy family cruisers a cockpit large enough to meet the demands of hard-core anglers. The leather upholstery, a teak and holly cabin sole, convertible dinette, and a spacious master stateroom with a walkaround island bed and built-in TV. Topside, the huge bi-level cockpit reinforced for a mounted chair, comes with in-deck storage compartments, cockpit steps and a transom door with gate. Additional features include a superb helm console with room for engine room access, and a hideaway bench seat at the transom.
