The Hatteras 61 Motor Yacht remains a popular model on the pre-owned market thanks in large to her galley-up floor plan, a feature not always found in the 1980 era.

 This vessel is powered by 12V71ti Detroit diesels with 855 hours on the rebuilt engines.

 This yacht is a pristine and perfect example of one of Hatteras's most desirable models ever constructed. She is, without a doubt, the most well-kept Hatteras Motor Yacht of her pedigree on the current market. This owner has spared no expense and is anxious to move forward with his new plans.


No creature comfort or amenity has been overlooked in this four stateroom, galley up design.

The full width salon is beautifully appointed in various shades of ivory, offsetting high gloss teak paneling and a fully mirrored forward bulkhead with a custom built Galley pass-through with custom teak trimmed counter. A custom made leather L-shaped sofa is aft to port. The starboard side forward offers a floor to ceiling teak entertainment center with wet bar, and plenty of storage.  

The spacious U-shaped galley is forward of the salon to port and is equipped to please any chef with new, updated appliances and new granite style with teak trimmed tops. The large newly upholstered dinette is adjacent to starboard also with a new granite style teak trimmed top.

Continuing forward, the full width pilothouse can be accessed through sliding teak doors port and starboard. In addition to a full complement of updated electronics and controls, there is a teak ladder to the bridge.

Below decks, the staterooms and engine rooms are accessed on the stbd. side of the pilothouse down a curved stairway. At the landing and immediately to starboard is the "ship's office" along the companionway. The office has a custom built-in teak desk. To port, the forward guest stateroom offers crossover upper and lower twins, private head compartment w/handheld shower, reading lights and under berth drawer storage. All the way forward, the crew/guest stateroom offers upper and lower berths, a dresser, a TV, a full length mirror, reading lights and a private head compartment with a separate stall shower.

Further aft and forward of the starboard engine room, a locker houses the separate washer & dryer, followed by a large linen closet.

Opposite and forward of the port engine room, the VIP stateroom offers twin beds, a built-in bedside table w/lamp, mirrored bulkhead, large cedar-lined closet, reading lights, overhead cabinet and under-berth drawer storage, and access to a full head across the companionway with separate stall shower (this also doubles as the day-head for guests).

The walk-in engine rooms are amidships and accessed on either side of the companionway.

All the way aft, the enormous full-width master stateroom features an island king berth with built-in bedside tables and bureaus, a lighted vanity, a walk-in cedar lined closet and a private head with tub and shower.
