1971 Hatteras 53′
Without doubt, the 53 Hatteras Motor Yacht is the most successful medium sized motor yacht ever built, with over 600 of them between their various incarnations. The main flavors are the standard motor yacht, cockpit motor yacht, the extended deckhouse (ED) version of the early 1980’s, and the 53 Convertible which is the same hull. They were in production from 1971 to 1989, a full nineteen years. My view of why this yacht was so popular is a combination of excellent quality, good design, and a fair price. It certainly didn’t have anything to do with performance because it is a relatively poor performer. Coming in at a whopping 55,000 lbs. in its original version, you need 1600 HP or more to move this yacht at the kind of speeds people like to have today. Instead, you’re only going to get 850 from a pair of 8V71’s or 924 from the 6V92’s found only in the 1983-84 models of the motor yacht. In all the years of its production, the weight never changed much.The hulls and superstructure are built like a tank with the bottoms about an inch thick with balsa cored sides and decks.
This boat is in the Cape crossing marina as a very busy dolphins restaurant and tiki bar..
with an assumable slip that is the best hurricane hole on this side of Florida. The restaurant is a huge tiki bar right on the water and this is the only Marina within a 100 miles around that is a liver-board marina.
