General Details

"Ethel M" is a nice example of the very versatile Hatteras 53 Yacht Fisherman. The Yacht Fisherman combines all the comforts of a 3 stateroom motoryacht along with an aft observation deck and good size cockpit. The cockpit is especially nice for those who maybe considering a 53 Motoryacht but want a boat more condusive to watersports or may tie up at a marina with floating docks.

"Ethel M" has been owned by the same family for over a decade and is a very low hour example with only 700 original hours! New carpet throughout plus a hartop over the flybridge make this boat really standout.

Walk Through
"Ethel M" is a very clean and original low hour example of the 53 Hatt Yachtfisherman. These boats feature an abundance of features including the versatility of having a 3 stateroom / 3 head motoryacht layout with the convenience of walk around side decks and a large cockpit that makes watersports and boarding from floating docks a breeze. "Ethel M"s salon can be accessed via both port and starboard pilothouse doors and double doors which open to a nice size aft deck which overlooks the cockpit. This aft deck has teak wing doors that lead to the side decks and teak steps that lead down to the cockpit. Inside the salon is light and open and features rich afromosa teak woodwork. The salon features a wetbar aft with u-line icemaker a comfortable couch to starboard and two barrel chairs to port. The salon is open to the lower station providing windows on all sides and a 360 degree view. The lower helm is a great place to get out of the elements and has good sightlines forward. Down and forward is the galley and dinette. A forward companionway leads to the day head and forward bunk stateroom. Aft of the galley there is a laundry closet with washer and dryer and a companionway flanked with the famous Hatteras split engine rooms. Just aft of the engines and to port is a nice size guest stateroom with double berth. This stateroom has a head with stall shower directly opposite to starboard. Aft is the master stateroom which features its own ensuite head with stall shower. The master has a large double berth that sits across the beam, nice ports looking out into the cockpit and an abundance of hanging locker space. The flybridge is accessed via a ladder from the aft deck and features a captain and companion chair at the helm with bench seating forward. The flybridge has a rare feature for the yachtfisherman with a hardtop over the bridge.
