1970 Hatteras 60 Yacht Fish

Amazingly rebuilt and updated from one end to the other, inside, and out. Repowered in 1999 with Cummins 6CTA main engines, cockpit addition in 2004, rewired and plumbed 2006, refit in 2008 and continuously ever since. Stabilized, bow thruster, dual generators, queen bed master, updated galley, incredible electronics (more than most 100’ yachts), “Ensign D III” is an amazing example of a yacht her size and vintage.

Now offered at a discount due to exterior cosmetics and needing new isolation transformers for the shore power system.
