    Manufacturer Provided Description
    Renowned seakeeping qualities are integral to the design of the Hatteras 70 Sport Deck Motor Yacht. The modified-V hull design delivers a sharp entry with a stable ride. The double chine with dual hullside stepouts mean a dryer boat and more beam above the waterline. There is a solid “shoe box” fit of hull to superstructure. Wrap-around aft deck stairs lead to a water-level activity platform in place of a traditional cockpit, and this clever bit of navel architecture enlarges the aft deck.Upgrade Summary, May 2018 to Present

    This is a highlight of the major upgrades done under current ownership. It is by no means a complete list of improvements.

    A/C System Upgrades Remove factory strainers from under mid-cabin floor and install larger thru hull valves and larger strainers in the engine room. Fabricate all new manifolds both intake and discharge of schedule 80 pvc at the compressors with new hoses, and both circulating pumps being rebuilt. New a/c compressor was installed for the Galley. New Flagship Marine all in one ac units with heat strips were installed in the forward and mid staterooms. These units eliminate the reversing valve and the compressor running on the heat cycle extending their life span.

    – Machinery Space Replaced the bulky air compressor with new compact ultra-quiet aluminum air compressor by California Air. This was installed on a new shelf over the transformers creating extra space.

    – Removed old storage box from floor and moved the generator wet mufflers back creating more accessibility to the engine space.

    – Updated black water sewage system, by eliminating the overboard discharge thru hull valves with new hoses straight to the holding tank. The thru hulls were then capped. The pump for the bunk room head was moved into the machinery space from under forward bunk to minimize the length of run. The pump out and vent hoses were also replaced at this me.

    Electronics, A major electronic upgrade was completed in 2020. This included a new Garmin 8616 XSV touchscreen in pilot house, Garmin 8624 GPS on flybridge, SIMRAD 8648 autopilot, and Garmin 18-mile radar dome. Eight new high-resolution cameras and a monitor were installed with enhanced night vision on the forward and the center units.

    Hall Out 2021 Wet blasted old bottom paint and repaired fourteen blisters. Applied two new coats of bottom paint, three from the chine to the water line. Removed stabilizer fins to install new seals. The five forward pilot house windows were removed and resealed. Additionally, stress cracks in the vertical supports were repaired and the area was repainted.

    Misc Improvements 2022-2023 New canvas installed on deck chairs. New isinglass/canvas surround installed on fly bridge. Replaced battery charger with new three bank electronic unit and four new starting batteries. Rebuilt steering cylinder. Replaced fresh water pump. Rebuilt Hatteras systems monitor board. And yes, we have every receipt. Many of the previous owner’s records are also on board. As is, all the factory supplied manuals including the blueprints.
