1987 Hatteras 65 Convertible

location icon Destin, Florida
Year 1987
Length 65 ft

80+k Price Reduction, now only 219. Owner says " Get it Sold" Although this is an unbelievable price the Owner is open to negotiation. 

Don't let the low price lead you to believe this Hatteras is in need of serious repair. She is well kept and ready to go but the Sellers position has changed and needs to sell her as quickly as possible. 

She is the best priced 65 Hatteras on the market for any that are even remotely close to the condition. With Low Hours and LOTS of Updates She is a Great Buy at this price. 

Most boats in this price range will require several thousand dollars to be spent on them and many many months in a boat yard before One can comfortably begin to operate the vessel. Not this one.   This 65 is ready to go and is used on a regular basis. 

From Power Boat Guide in 2016,

" The Hatteras 65 Convertible remains the best selling sportfishing boat her size ever built"

This Hatteras 65 has had a very significant amount of updates in the past two years to include:

- All New 4 Side Enclosures

- All New Cushions, Bridge and Cockpit

- Interior updates including Carpet, Furniture Coverings and More

- Engines are serviced routinely and She is used on a regular basis.

-  NAIAD Stabilizers

The overall condition of this 65 Hatteras is Really Great. She appears to have had light use during her life time and shows no signs of abuse of neglect. The engine room is clean and well organized and no signs of lots of changes to the original equipment. 

She is fully equipped with all the Navigation Equipment and Comfort Amenities to Ensure the Owners with a Great Cruising or Fishing Experience to virtually any location in the World.  With her 183 sq feet of Teak Cockpit, two 20KW Onan Generators, Stabilzers,  Updated Interior, Glossy Exterior and Classic Lines the Owners and Guest will Fish and Cruise in Comfort and Style.

This Hatteras is definitely worth serious consideration if you are looking at any Sport Fishing Vessel in the 60-70 foot class. A whole lot of boat for not a lot of money. She is used on a regular basis but mostly for day trips so the hours are still low. She stays in "ready to fish" condition and should offer the new Owners many many years of enjoyment.
