Vessel Walkthrough & Accommodations
Airwaves is a must-see if you are in the market for a Hatteras Motoryacht.  This yacht has been tastefully decorated and shows extremely well. Every area of this beautiful yacht has been given special attention making her turn-key ready for her next owner.  As you enter through the main deck at the pilothouse with port and starboard wing doors, the first thing that catches your eye is the beautiful leather settee for the helm seat and the custom Amtico flooring and the staircase, which leads up to the fly bridge. Just aft of the pilothouse is the Galley Up, with stainless appliances including a stainless refrigerator, stovetop and microwave. A large varnished teak topped dinette lies to starboard, an excellent place for morning breakfast or casual gatherings.  The corian countertop is an off white color, complimenting the stainless appliances and providing a warm European ambiance.  As you step aft, you enter the huge salon, decorated in exquisite detail. To starboard is the full bar with ice maker and sink. Located above the bar is TV with surround sound, stereo/ DVD which can be viewed from anywhere in the salon. Speakers for the stereo system and TV are located throughout the boat. Across from the bar is an elegant mahogany dining table that seats six comfortably. Behind the dinette is a full-length mirror on the forward wall, which adds to the feeling of spaciousness and reflects the beauty of this area.  The salon seating has all been updated since 2007, with neutral tones, blues and beiges. A large L-Shape settee with pull out bed is to port with a large cocktail table with storage inside. Accompanied by two barrel chairs to starboard separated by a table. Many yachts today, lack the seating and comfort of this yacht. All the soft goods and pillows have been updated. Carpet is beige with a runway carpet runner. Aft, on port side is the access door to the spacious aft landing deck, cockpit and swim platform. This allows for easy access for diving, fishing, swimming or just relaxing while enjoying the breeze and the serenity of the water. There is also a set of cockpit controls, for easy handling of the while docking or fishing.

These all have storage space as well. The tender and davit are located on the aft overhang of the bridge.
