“The Godfather” is truly an exceptional example of the classic 52′ Hatteras Sportfish Convertible!

She received a major refit in 2005 and another major refit in 2021-2023!

During the latest refit, she was re-powered and commissioned in 2021 with new John Deere 6135SFM85 diesels with 750hp each and only have 250 original hours. Her engine room was stripped and totally redone with custom reconfiguration. Other mechanical items at this time induced a new ARG Gyro Stabilizer, a new 20kw Northern Lights Generator, major rewiring & plumbing, new running gear, nibral props, (6) new Dometic reverse/cycle A/C’s (including the engine room) plus much more. The refit of the interior included the salon/galley areas being stripped and reconfigured and customized, while the engines were out. These areas, as well as the rest of the interior, also received all new flooring (teak & holly) throughout, headliner, custom LED overhead lighting, padded vinyl wall covering, plus much more! The exterior included new paint/non-skid as needed, custom helm reconfiguration, new Llabroc helm chairs, new exterior upholstery, new electronics, plus much more!

The 2005 refit included her hull being completely stripped, and completely refinished in Awlgrip paint and non-skid, custom new style frame-less windows, hull port holes were eliminated, the front windshield removed was glassed over, recessed flybridge running lights, new style custom engine Room intakes, custom aluminum half tower with hard top.

With her dependable John Deere re-power, new Gyro Stabilizer, new generator and many other recent upgrades, she is an exceptional buy.

She is perfect for the serious fisherman or for the cruising couple or family.
