Brokers Comments

Yea this is a 50 year old boat but believe me it looks much younger than its actual age and the Hatteras Pedigree is evident.  The boat has been used recently as an AirBnB and has been kept in nice condition.  The current owner acquired the boat in a settlement and wants to liquidate it as soon as possible.  It is not in perfect shape but has many positives such as good engines that run, a desirable and clean interior, a new Northern Lights Generator, fresh electronics, flatscreen TVs, and a bow thruster.  The boat must be considered somewhat of a project and it needs a knowledgeable owner willing to invest some time and money to bring it up to a higher standard.  In my opinion the boat could serve as an immediate Live-Aboard and must be considered a good value at its current asking price.  The owner wants to sell "as is" and will entertain any reasonable offer.
