To see full description of this boat from the seller click on the Seller Description tab above.

This 1996 Tiara Yachts 2900 Open is a good example of the "Montauk Edition" of this very popular model range. First introduced in 1993, the TIARA 2900 Open was produced in several versions right up through 2006! To have that sort of longevity, Tiara Yachts surely was doing a number of things "just right".

Her Owners have opted to sell their 1996 TIARA 2900 Open .. that they purchased in 2012 .. as the Family's plans have changed for this Season beyond. She's in full commission at her slip in Stamford, CT and ready to go for the balance of this Season. Appointments for a viewing are certainly to be encouraged for this nice example of the TIARA 2900 Open.
