Other Features

Vessel was repainted with Glasurit brand (paint system used on Mercedes Benz, easily touched up and waxes beautifully) paints in approx (2000). Paint condition is generally excellent! Hull port lights have been custom "faired flush" to hull sides and numerous Hatteras "clam shells scoops" have been done away with, now with just one "contoured vent on hull. Owner reports "no blisters on bottom and any of his haul-outs for periodic bottom maintenance.


Bare Bones was built for the first owner with a custom Flybridge. In addition to the standard center line forward helm and the customized aft fishing helm, there is an "L" shaped lounge aft to stbd., with a table. On the Pt. side forward of the fishing helm is a settee and molded on the aft edge of the fly-bridge are "weather boards" which combined with the full enclosure make for a very comfortable, livable space in nearly any weather. This "custom bridge" arrangement offers "30%" more usable area than the standard bridge.
