Aptly named this 58' Hatteras was purchased by a professional husband and wife captain team after an exhaustive search for the perfect boat several years ago.


Full time employment on a larger yacht and a new home ashore has brought about putting CAPTAIN'S CHOICE on the market. Stored undercover in "freshwater" till sold, this 58' Hatteras has stabilizers and a newer bow thruster plus an overall condition that makes her stand out from her sisterships.



Boarding is via the port and starboard Pilothouse gates where you can walk aft to the Aft Deck wing door or into the Pilothouse.
