A fresh water gem located in Seattle, Washington. This boat is truly amazing. She’s been professionally maintained and cared for. The vessel was owned locally by high profile yachting enthusiasts. The current owner purchased the boat and kept it in fresh water, as did the previous owners. The boat is currently close to our South Lake Union facility, and can be viewed by appointment anytime. Please call Dan Wood to set up a personalized private showing of this amazing Hatteras 48 motoryacht.

The Powerboat Guide says: “The original Hatteras 48 Motor Yacht (a newer model came out in 1990) was built on what Hatteras called a ‘dual mode’ hull designed for efficient low-speed operation while retaining planing-speed capability with larger engines. (Fuel efficiency was a serious marketing tool in the early 1980s when the 48 was introduced.) Showing a slightly trawler-style profile, the Hatteras 48 was heavily built on a solid fiberglass hull with shallow deadrise aft and a long keel for directional stability. Her standard three-stateroom interior is arranged with two staterooms aft of the salon, three heads (but only one stall shower), and a lower helm. The spacious after deck of the Hatteras 48 is one of the largest to be found on a boat this size–indeed, the aft deck dimensions actually exceed those of the salon. Additional features include a radar arch, hardtop, wing doors, an integral bow pulpit, and a swim platform. Detroit 425hp 6V92 diesels cruise at a robust 14-15 knots.”
