'Solace' is optioned with the desirable 'Plan B' layout. With this particular layout, the cabin is very open and more spacious as the standard solid forward bulkhead and cabin door is not fitted. When you do want privacy or have quests aboard then a substantial curtain can be pulled across the forward sleeping area. The curtain itself is stowed behind its own teak door when not in use. 

Entering from the centerline companionway into the solid teak trimmed cabin you first have the galley to starboard (see Galley), just to port of the companionway is a large storage cupboard and all the way on the port side aft is a settee that converts into over/under bunks when needed. 

Midships on the starboard side is a large dinette with aft-facing L-shaped settee and teak hi-lo table with beautiful birdseye maple inlay. 

Midships to port is the head compartment which features a separate shower stall, Corian vanity top, mirrored cabinet and vacuflush head. 

All the way forward is the centerline Island queen berth. The sleeping area features ample storage beneath the bed, overhead both sides of the bed and also hanging lockers each side.

There is air-conditioning/ reverse cycle heat fitted throughout the cabin split into two units. 



The galley is in an L-shape arrangement to starboard.

Manufacturer Provided Description
With over six feet, seven inches of headroom, three opening foredeck hatches and six hullside portlights (with screens), the Tiara 3800 Open interior is large and well-lit. The starboard U-shaped lounge converts to an over-sized dinette with a hi-lo pedestal table or to a double berth. The lounge backrest flips up to make a pullman-style single berth. The AM / FM stereo is standard. The fully-equipped galley features a double bowl stainless sink, microwave oven, two-burner electric cooktop, AC / DC refrigerator / freezer, Corian countertop, lazy susan under the counter shelf unit, and plenty of over / under storage. The completely private owner's stateroom features a pedestal queen berth with storage below, accessed with the aid of a gas-assist lift. A large hanging locker, hullside convenience shelves, and private access to the head complete this retreat. The head has dual access from both the salon and owner's stateroom and offers a separate stall shower and molded Corian countertop and sink with vanity, mirror and storage above, and under-storage below. On deck, standard cockpit seating features an extra-wide back-to-back helm seat with wetbar and storage, and a curved companion lounge with cooler storage and aft-facing seat. An optional fold down transom lounge and ice maker are also available. The stepped cockpit features 147 square feet of entertaining or fishing space. Under the cockpit sole are large compartments for either cruising or fishing stowage, or both. Engines access is through an upper cockpit drop-down hatch, or through a lower cockpit electric hatch lift. Borrowing from the 5200 Express, the 3800 Open has a new custom electrical system, and also offers an optional generator, which includes a sound shield. The tilt-away helm features over 3.5 square feet of additional space for electronics.
