Don’t let the low price lead you to believe this Hatteras is in need of serious repair. She is very well kept by a knowledgeable owner who keeps her serviced and ready to go. But the Seller is moving and needs to downsize for his new slip.

 From Power Boat Guide in 2016,

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

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, NIAD Stabilizers,  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.

Recent appraisal has this 65 Hatteras at just under 350,000, so this is a real bargain price  for a great running, well cared for and updated vessel.
