General Description

Preliminary listing. This Hatteras is currently, August 2022, in the boat yard for fresh bottom paint, two new air conditioners, new carpet and new countertops. New photos of the Galley and Dinette will follow once all installed. 

She has a new full boat paint job in 2020 and shows extremely well. 

She is a great boat that has been really pampered all her life and never been fished hard. Certainly, she is capable but the last two Owners, and seemingly the previous/original owner, have really just used her for cruising and light fishing. She has been very well cared for and is mechanically and cosmetically in great condition with several updates over the years. 

From Power Boat Guide in 2016,

" The Hatteras 65 Convertible remains the best selling sportfishing boat her size ever built"

This Hatteras 65 has had a very significant amount of updates in the past few years to include:

- All New 4 Side Enclosures

- All New Cushions, Bridge and Cockpit

- Interior updates including Carpet, Furniture Coverings and More

- Engines are serviced routinely and She is used on a regular basis.

-  NAIAD Stabilizers

She is fully equipped with all the Navigation Equipment and Comfort Amenities to Ensure the Owners with a Great Cruising or Fishing Experience to virtually any location in the World.  With her 183 sq feet of Teak Cockpit, two 20KW Onan Generators, Stabilzers,  Updated Interior, Glossy Exterior and Classic Lines the Owners and Guest will Fish and Cruise in Comfort and Style.

This Hatteras is definitely worth serious consideration if you are looking at any Sport Fishing Vessel in the 60-70 foot class. A whole lot of boat for not a lot of money. She is used on a regular basis but mostly for day trips so the hours are still low. She stays in "ready to fish" condition and should offer the new Owners many many years of enjoyment.

If you ever wanted to own a large Hatteras, top of the line battle wagon, without spending a couple million bucks, this is the one you want to own. She will do all the things any modern sportfish can do, just slightly less speed, but very comfortable getting wherever you want to go for a week of fishing or just island hopping, rig fishing or just cruising.
