General Description

SIMPLE PLEASURES is one of the most highly optioned and (as of this writing) the only 72' Hatteras Motor Yacht currently on market. It has been made into a luxurious liveaboard with carefully thought out systems and comforts that even the most demanding of yachtsmen could want.  To say it simply,  the current owners love this boat and it shows.  Not only have these seasoned owner/operators created a well-appointed home away from home, but they have kept this vessel in pristine condition, needing nothing.  In addition, this model has a full walkaround, which makes operating this boat a pleasure and with the added swim platform, this vessel is close to 80 ft. LOA.

Manufacturers Description

The 72 Motor Yacht from Hatteras Yachts features traditional exterior lines with subtle contemporary styling cues for an overall effect that fits into today's marketplace while easily standing the test of time. This unique model features a wider salon than comparable motor yachts on the market, yet it still retains side-deck access that makes the 72 Motor Yacht perfect for the owner/operator. Down below, the 72 boasts a full-beam master stateroom with a his-and-hers head option, along with two luxurious guest rooms - a third one available as an option. A clever aft compartment can be equipped as either a crew area or as a fourth guest room, creating a truly unique vessel in its size range. The 72 Motor Yacht features a resin-infused hull, rather than one built up of layers of hand-laid fiberglass. The automated resin-infusion process produces a more uniform hull thickness from one hull to the next, as well as the most ideal glass-to-resin ratio. This one-two punch produces a boat that weighs significantly less because of the lowered resin content, while providing a more precise fit of bulkheads, stringers and other components for increased strength and durability. In the salon, a large settee with chaise lounge offers storage and seating, along with a comfortable view of the 42-inch plasma TV, which is perfectly angled toward the sofa. A formal dining table to port seats six comfortably. One step up to the galley, a full walk-in pantry to port provides ample storage for supplies. Part of this space can be modified to incorporate an optional day head on the main level. Forward of the galley, you will find a large, country kitchen-style dinette with stone countertop for casual dining. For easy access to and from the boat, the Hatteras 72 Motor Yacht provides port and starboard access doors on either side of the galley. An optional helm with a single pedestal chair is available for those that require a lower helm station.
