1981 Hatteras Cockpit Motor Yacht

Gulf Shores, Alabama


This Classic Hatteras Motor Yacht is very likely the Cleanest, Most Updated and Best Maintained of any Comparable Vessel on the Market.  

The Owner is a Very Knowledgeable Yacht Owner with Many Years of Experience and Knows the Importance of Proper Maintenance and is Just as Meticulous about the Cosmetics as he is the Mechanics of the Vessel.

Not only a Beautifully Kept Vessel but a Rare One as well. Only a Few of the 48 MYs were made with a Cockpit and this is a Huge Benefit. One Still Gets the Full Beam Master Suite but also has the Added Convenience of a Cockpit for Water Activities,  Ease of Boarding and Launching Your Tender for Shore Excursions. 

This Hatteras will not disappoint you. She is a Beautiful Boat and Ready to Cruise with Full Service in Fall of 2018.  This is a Great and Rare Opportunity to Own a Classic Hatteras that has been kept to these Standards.
