1981 Hatteras 55 Flybridge Convertible Fishing Boat in Naples, Florida

Stock #151764

There are a few boat builders that have attained legendary status for the quality, durability, and beauty of their boats. In the world of sportfishing and motor yachts, Hatteras is one of the most legendary and this fishing yacht exemplifies why.

In 1981 Ronald Reagan was inaugurated President, MTV debuted with the music video "Video Killed the Radio Star", the Space Shuttle Columbia made her maiden voyage to orbit, and this yacht was constructed and launched. Built by a company synonymous with quality, it shows throughout.

Approaching this vessel the first thing you notice is the size. This is a big boat built to take lots of people on big seas. At 55' long and 56' tall, her proportions are spectacular. Even after more than three decades her gelcoat and rails still shine, a testament to the excellent care she has received over the years.

Climbing aboard the stern you are received in a huge fishing cockpit complete with the single main fighting chair, capable of helping reel in the largest of fish, plus two smaller fighting chairs. There is not so much as a scuff or nick in the upholstery of these chairs. You find ample storage throughout the cockpit and powerful lights above to keep the fishing going through the night.

Climbing the ladder to the bridge, you are met with seating for up to 10, plus the captain, a sound system independent from the rest of the vessel, and a full canvas and isinglass enclosure in near perfect condition for protection when the elements conspire against you. Every cushion is in excellent condition, no scrapes, cuts, cracks.

There is storage under the bench seats and a table for enjoying some snacks with the skipper. The helm station is fully instrumented and includes a chart table with cover, a Garmin GPS in easy view, and an overhead electronics box. The overhead box is filled with another GPS, functioning 120 mile Furuno radar, two VHF radios, and more.

Climbing the tower to the upper helm station provides a panoramic view of everything around from a perch 50 feet above the water. The upholstery on the leaning rails is in excellent condition as is the bimini top. From here you can look over your shoulder to see what's happening with the fishermen and you have a full view of the entire bow. This station features the basics of engine controls, steering, and a compass.

The bow features a large anchor and windlass, two deck boxes, huge cleats, and 1500lb electric davit. There is a Boston Whaler skiff with 25hp motor that can be separately purchased as well.

When you're ready for a break from the sun and surf, the cabin is your sanctuary. Entering through the aft door you are met with a large saloon featuring a sectional hide-a-bed sofa, coffee table, and chair. An icemaker serves the saloon. Overhead is storage for up to 18 fishing rods with more rod storage in the port cabin wall.

The galley features a full sized bottom freezer refrigerator with ice maker, a four-burner electric stovetop, microwave with convection oven, and dishwasher. There is a lot of cabinet and storage space for provisions and dishes.

The dinette seats four comfortably with a flat-screen TV above the forward dinette bench. The dinette converts to an extra bunk for up to two. Under the dinette, benches are storage, currently occupied by all of the vessel manuals, records, and the ORIGINAL CONSTRUCTION BLUEPRINTS for all systems.

Down the companionway, you find three staterooms and three heads. The port stateroom features a pair of bunks, bedside cabinet, hanging closet, and a door into the head that it shares with guests.

To starboard is the master stateroom featuring a new queen bed with memory foam mattress and under bed drawers, two hanging closets, a high boy dresser, and flat screen TV. The private head features a sizeable shower, vanity, and several towel bars.

Forward is the bow stateroom featuring bunks, a private head, condo-sized stackable washer and dryer, chart storage and chart table, overhead storage for nine fishing rods, and hanging closet. In case you lost count, that's three staterooms with sleeping for 6 plus overflow sleeping for up to four.

Back at the cockpit, descend the steps into the stand-up engine room filled with a pair of 650hp Detroit 12V71TI turbodiesel engines, fed by a 900-gallon main tank and 400-gallon reserve fuel tank. The exhaust system on these engines was built for a New York ferry that was repowered and kept its original exhaust. It is fully insulated for heat and sound.

Two Westerbeke generators provide power, one 10kwh, which can run all ship's systems, plus a 15kwh unit that has more than enough power for this vessel and then some. The DC electrical system is 32V, powered by an inverter and a single 32V house battery.

The engines are started by a bank of 8 batteries and the generators share a battery for starting. The cabin is cooled by a bank of four Cruisair air conditioners, two 7,000 BTU units and two 16,000 BTU units. The engine room also comes with a steel tool chest packed with tools and spare parts.

The vessel was recently outfitted with new bronze propellers. The old propellers have been fully reconditioned and come with it as spares. There are also spare prop shafts and couplers included. Numerous other spare parts, oil, and fuel filters are included.

This Hatteras 55' Flybridge Convertible may not be the youngest girl at the dock, but she is likely the most turnkey, ready to sail, tough as nails, and comfortable as silk vessel you will find in this age and price range.
