Manufacturer Info



Sport fishermen and cruisers alike have depended upon Hatteras Yachts for one thing, decade after decade: excellent seakeeping abilities. Hatteras likes to remind folks that their designs were born and bred along the North Carolina coast, the “Graveyard of the Atlantic,” where boats are built rugged and are designed to take on rough inlets and open waters. But don’t let that toughness fool you; these yachts also feature interior design and creature comforts that are second to none.

Listing Agents Comments

This is a rare European Arrangement which is the galley up, and an island bed in the master Stateroom. She is a 3 owner boat with the recent owner having her for the past 18 or so years, with the last 8 to 10 years in the fresh water. You won't find a cleaner Hatteras on the market today. The hull has always been waxed and she looks like new or just freshly painted.
She also has the front windows which is rare. On the bow there is a Electric davit with a Boston Whaler on chocks
  • If you have any worries about having an older boat don't! There is a web site that in which you can locate anything you might need if anything. Plus they have great records of all Hatteras's, and a great support team.
