Hull number 13 of the ever popular Hatteras 65 Long Range Cruisers, “Changing Course” was purchased by her current owners in 2021. She had a 5 ‘ cockpit extension added by her original owner, which provides almost a 2 knot increase in cruising speed, as well as adding additional room for entertaining, fishing and ease of dinghy and watersports handling. With her 6v71 Detroit Diesels, she cruises at a comfortable 10 knots while burning less than a gallon of fuel per mile. Boasting 4 staterooms and 3 heads, she has plenty of room for family and guests. She has been updated constantly including new canvas in February 2024 and an extensive refit in 2008. “Changing Course” should be on your short list of quality built long range cruisers.
