The bow is fitted with port and starboard storage and a Galley Maid windlass. Currently in a slip, at a protected facility, this 1981 55 foot Hatteras Convertible is a very special motor yacht, restored and designed for living aboard with all the amenities of home. It was surveyed four years ago. The main accommodations include 3 cabins each with twin berths, three individual heads and the master has a private shower. The galley has a full size refrigerator and freezer, convection and microwave ovens, sink, electric range top, dishwasher, icemaker and plenty of storage.Twin Detroit Diesel TIs supply all the needed power (650HP) and have only accumulated about 2500 hours of use.

All of the batteries were recently replaced and there are loads of cable and spare parts. There are a pair of 220AMP input receptacles as well as a 30AMP service connection.For long range cruising, the fuel tanks hold 1285 gallons of diesel.

The salon is large with a L-shaped starboard sofa & full size sleeper, Panasonic flat screen TV custom built on the port side of the dinette. There is a stereo system throughout the boat.

   Since this Sport Fisherman appears to be so well put together, we didn't want to bog our bidders down with pages of boat history and performance information. We consider that most of the interested enthusiasts, who may be looking at this listing, will know much more about this particular yacht than we do. If you do need additional generic information, it is abundant through the use of some simple internet searches.   Superior service attention that was given to this yacht means that you can count on the predictable reliability and performance that this vessel will provide for the new owners. Our pictures will speak for themselves, but it does look MUCH better in person! Our immaculate showcased yacht is 36 years old, so please forgive us if we've overlooked something minor. Be advised that the Whaler and engine on the foredeck are the only things shown that are not being sold with the Hatteras.  As with all of our eBay Motors listings, we try to let our high resolution photographs tell the story about the items that we are selling. Most  of the pictures that you see were just taken by us. We have shots from many angles including the total exterior, complete walk through engine bay and the full teak interior. Multiple close ups will attempt to help you with any questions you may have about condition issues. What you see is exactly what you will get! If you study these photos very carefully, you will see precisely what this stunning yacht is all about. Some of the smaller images that we included are archive.    The clear multiple high resolution images of this boat, shown below, will do a much better job of describing the present look, style, condition and market value of this yacht, than our words ever could. Hatteras yachts in good condition are really still one of the true bargains in the boating arena and this turn-key craft would be a fantastic addition for anyone! This boat will be completely waxed and the bottom will be cleaned prior to pickup, along with new zincs being installed. Safe dockage is paid up until the end of October. We invite all questions and comments and there is absolutely NO RESERVE on this auction.                                DISCLAIMER
