1977 Hatteras Motor Yacht

Gilbertsville, Kentucky

The Hatteras 53 is widely considered a classic yachting design. Few American motoryachts of her era came close to matching the Hatteras 53 in comfort and luxury, and none could match the quality construction long associated with the Hatteras brand. Heavily built on a solid fiberglass hull with moderate beam and a shallow keel, the Hatteras 53' s expansive three-state room interior has been considered ideal in motor yachts of her age and size. Because the galley and dinette are down, the salon is surprisingly spacious with sufficient room aft of the lower helm to entertain a small-sized crowd. So, for all you Hatteras lovers looking for a beautiful boat, this is the boat to see. Every boater would love to own this boat. This 53' Hatteras has been redone from top to bottom and inside and out. She has always been under cover and professionally maintained. She is TURN KEY ready. She is powered by two 550 hp Detroit twin turbo diesels with new turbos. (all 4 turbos are new) She is spacious for living and touring with large salon, full galley and 3 state rooms. The owner has spared no expense and has spent over 100k on upgrades, replacements, etc. This boat is beautiful, inside and out. She was pulled in 2012 and all blisters repaired, service done and new bottom paint.

This one, you have to see.
