General Details

***Seller Update 07/25/2014 - Chris, I took the boat out about 10 days ago and developed a leak at the starboard raw water pump. I hired Perkins Diesel to repair the problem. So far the mechanic has replaced both impellers and rebuilt the water pumps and today has removed the starboard turbos which will be replaced. The port engine runs very well without smoke and we feel there will be no turbo problems there. In a few weeks when all is finished we will do a run and then to Capps marine for new zincs and bottom paint. My handyman has nearly finished polishing and waxing the superstructure. With some cooler weather The bright work had 3 new coats of varnish this fall***

***Seller Update 11-19-2013 - The old La Marche charger has been replaced by a brand new Newmar smart charger greatly reducing the need to add water to the batteries. A new Bimini top has been installed and I am replacing the forward head wallpaper with glass tiles and will replace the sink with a granite top, spigot and sink bowel. If I have time will replace all head amenities.***

Hatteras is know for its dry hulls and craftsmanship. This 53' Motoryacht is no exception. She is a classy live-aboard, weekend getaway, long range cruiser or suitable for a day trip. All electronics are in working order and the engines are the reliable and long-lasting Detroit Diesels with Allison transmissions. This classic Hatteras may be 28 years, but she is gorgeous and extremely well preserved.

The 3 cabin design feature 3 baths, 3 staterooms and the classic Hatteras 2 engine room design. The galley is very well equipped with stove, oven, microwave, fridge/freezer and plenty of counterspace. The pilothouse and bridge have all the necessary electronics and more. The salon is spacious with excellent audio/visual and additional outdoor seating aft for a beautiful view.

The Detroit 6V92TA engines provide the perfect blend of power and efficiency. There is also a 2011 Torqeedo 1073 kicker motor included in the sale and shown in the photos.

The owner has taken very good care of this vessel and is just ready for something a bit more manageable for him and the family.

All systems are functional and she is ready to hit the water.
