The Hatteras 48 Yachtfisher by J. Hargrave was and is a true classic. With a large foredeck and wide side decks that terminate aft at the wing doors for safe passage to an enclosed and roomy aft deck. The lower helm station, featuring two seats, is located just forward of the aft deck (all on the same level).
A stainless steel and teak ladder leads from the fishing cockpit to the flybridge that features a dual helm station seat and a forward bench seat for guests.
Belowdecks, proceeding from fore to aft is the forward stateroom with upper and lower bunks and desk area. A separate full size head and shower is located to port. The galley is next with full-sized appliances.
A stairway with three steps leads to the large spacious main salon with large windows providing a bright and livable area. Aft and down three steps from the salon is the master stateroom with queen bed to starboard and a full bed to port. Natural light baths the master stateroom.
Additionally just forward of the master stateroom is a guest stateroom to starboard featuring over and under bunks. A full size head and shower is located to port.

The cockpit is large and features a custom cabinet that adds a work-space counter, and two cabinets. One cabinet houses the trash compactor and the other is additional storage space. The cockpit features a transom door with swim platform located aft.

Broker's Comments

An absolute "must see" if you are in the market for a roomy and well-constructed fiberglass yacht of this vintage. The Hatteras name carries respect for good reason, and this is an excellent example.

Originally designed to provide the spaciousness and comfort of a motor yacht with sport fishing capability. This design concept has remained popular because it offers the interior space of a flush deck or sundeck design with the access and other functional benefits of a cockpit. This could be a great live-aboard! The large salon is open and bright and creates a comfortable living area.
Mahogany interior is in outstanding condition.
Detroit diesels start immediately and the boat shows every indication of good continuing care and maintenance.

As Health forces sale, the recent price reduction makes this boat a "steal"
Call to arrange an appointment to inspect before this one gets away!
