Broker's Comments

With its imposing profile and stately interior, this live-aboard has the look and feel of a 'mini super-yacht'.

Above decks, there's a large saloon and a terrific outdoor space in the shape of a huge aft cockpit. There's even a bar area!

Below, there's a stylish galley and dining area, with a large twin cabin amidships and the master stateroom aft. There are two toilet / shower rooms.

The boat was substantially and lovingly rebuilt in 1999, with the flybridge removed.

Whilst she is an super live-aboard, with a little engine work this boat is capable of serious long distance cruising. For over 50 years, the Hatteras brand has been synonymous with superior build quality.

The boat comes with a fully residential mooring in a secure, gated marina which is very close to Canary Wharf and the City. This is a popular and convenient location, with tubes, buses, trains and the river bus all close to hand, as well as supermarkets, bars, restaurants and shops. The marina supports a vibrant and friendly live-aboard community.

The mooring is transferable by agreement with Marina management and there is no transfer fee on this particular berth.
