General Description

Custom! Custom! Beautiful Custom!  From her entire salon, galley, and dinette total refit to her fresh professionally applied Awlgrip paint job, this vessel  is extremely special and is truly a “must see” for any potential 65’ Hatteras buyer. This is a 1988 65’ Hatteras but easily mistaken for a much later model yacht.  She has benefited from an extensive interior refit and a flawless exterior paint job in Dec. 2010.  This yacht has seldom been fished and spent most of its time cruising at 15 kts.  She is exquisite from stem to stern!


Financing Available for East Coast Buyers!


The master stateroom is forward in the bow with a centerline queen and private head and shower to port.  Aft to port is a twin berth stateroom with its own private head and shower.  To starboard is the third stateroom, featuring cross-over berths.  The utility room/pump room is accessed from a door in this stateroom.  Aft, up the companionway stairs is a dinette with seating for 6 to starboard and a full custom galley to port.  Further aft is the luxuriously appointed salon with a large L-shaped leather sofa and two swivel based occasional chairs, entertainment center and pop-up 43" LCD TV.


Enter the salon through a custom frameless full view salon door.  You will find the salon elegantly decorated and completely refit with custom crafted cherry joinery, new headliner/lighting, huge custom L-shaped leather couch with storage, swivel occasional chairs.  Overhead custom fluted cherry valences circulate air conditioning throughout the main level.  The high end entertainment system begins with a Bose 48 sound system and hard drive CD storage.  Multiple outboard amplifiers and a Niles audio channel selector pipe sound throughout interior, cockpit, and fore deck.  A 43” Samsung Plasma television on motorized lift emerges from granite counters and comfortably viewable from entire salon.  Custom lighting with dimmers


Thickly etched and backlit glass divider visually separates the salon and dining area, while adding a dramatic artistic focal point.   The raised Dinette seating is covered in butter soft ultra-leather and the granite dining table sits on beautiful, custom fluted cherry pedestals.  A Scottsman wet cube icemaker and refreshment cabinet can be found in this area as well.


The refit Galley is absolutely incredible with more than ample storage.  Top of the line amenities include four Sub-Zero refrigerator drawers, two Sub-Zero freezer drawers, four burner cooktop, microwave/convection oven, and dishwasher.  Custom pull-out china cabinet, steam bent curved cabinet doors have been built in to accommodate additional storage.  Granite counters and a deep under mount sink round out this dream galley.
