General Details

Here is a classic 45' Hatteras convertible with notable updates in 2003, plus consistent maintenance and additional upgrades to date. A reliable vessel that is ready to go and will be a pleasure for her next owner. In '03 the motors were overhauled and the boat got a new half-tower and interior decor. Since then the canvas is all new including bridge cushions, cockpit shade and an un-used 3-sided enclosure. Interior has a new refrigerator, icemaker, hot water heater, Salon TV and LCD TVs in the staterooms all with DVD players. Clean engine room too! This is a well-kept boat that makes reasonable speed and has good sea handling characteristics.
