Great opportunity to own a fantastic vessel at a fraction of her refit costs. With the legendary Hatteras ride and her perfect condition, this 55 is ready for her next owner. Located in Stuart FL- very easy to see.


In 2014 while underway, the port Detroit Diesel engine failed spraying diesel fuel in the engine room. It ignited but was quickly extinguished by the fire suppression system. This prompted the owner to refit the entire engine room which included New Cummins engines, gears, new generator and new wiring on all systems. No structural damage was done to any part of the vessel.
