50' Hatteras Convertible 1981



Palm City, Florida

The ultimate guys week fishing boat and a fantastic liveaboard! The new customized interior creates a one of a kind living/fishing/boating experience! The solid Hatteras hull and workhorse Detroit Diesels will insure you enjoy the journey. This vessel has been completely gone through in the past 4 years and is in great running condition. Lots of new upgrades! This is definitely a must-see boat if you are looking for a boat to impress your fishing buddies and have a comfortable liveaboard or at least a great FL winter home. The interior is reminiscent of an upscale Miami beach condo, including a huge “hideaway” big screen TV, custom bar, huge galley, fun multi colored rope lighting and more! With a bridge clearance of 15' 10" it is even Great Loop ready for long term cruising. There are a few minor cosmetic issues that still need to be addressed on the upper helm area from when the tuna tower was removed, but very easy repairs. This is the reason for the very low price!

More Details

Boarding the boat into the wide cockpit with fighting chair, tuna door to the teak swim platform you can feel the solid Hatteras build right away. The cockpit has a large sink with new faucet, and a freezer. Ladder for easy access to the helm which has two helm chairs and seating for at least 6 people and a new canvas cover. Access to the engine room is also from the cockpit which makes maintenance easy to accomplish. The engine room is spotless, easy to maneuver in and access to all components.

One step up from the cockpit through the full-sized door into the main salon is like walking into a well-appointed Miami condo. With new hardwood flooring, wall paneling, comfortable, functional custom-made furnishings and 6’6” headroom throughout, makes you not feel like you are on a boat. The colorful custom cushions just add to the overall feel. The large 360 view windows make this living space feel even larger. The galley is a few steps down from the salon. New counter tops, a huge stainless steel sink with high end faucet, a full sized refrigerator/freezer, microwave, 3 burner Princess stove with oven, custom upper cabinets and lighting are just few of the things that make this galley a joy to cook in.

Past and across from the galley are the cabins and heads. Each cabin has 2 single bunks. (The master cabin can easy be modified to accommodate a queen berth if one desired to so so) There are 3 full-sized hanging lockers in cabin area of the boat. The original Hatteras woodwork in this portion of the vessel is in beautiful condition. Each head has a full-sized separate shower with glass doors. New sinks and faucets. Each head has a dedicated 15-gallon freshwater tank to be used for clean flushing, so no salt water needed!

Definitely a comfortable, clean, well appointed, unique vessel!

This is a very nice, clean, completely gone through boat. The engine room is super clean. Engines and generator sound good and smooth. The extra sound dampening added when salon floor was installed really make a difference, one of the quietest Hatteras’s I have been on. There are still some minor painting projects that need to be completed on the deck. There used to be a tuna tower, but owner chose to remove it.
