Vessel Walkthrough

Welcome aboard the 2006 68 Hatteras Enclosed Bridge “ASIAN PEARL”.  The moment you step into her 192 square foot cockpit you realize the level of sportfish battlewagon you are on board. Her cockpit is all business but does offer a softer side. The full teak package, raised mezzanine seating and custom cockpit sunshade offer comfort and beauty to go along with her Braun.   Additional cockpit features include:

  • Release marine fighting chair w/ rocket launcher back
  • AC vents blowing down on mezzanine seating
  • Garmin multifunction display mounted on port side for mezzanine viewing
  • JL Audio Speakers
  • Refrigerated drink box
  • Bait freezer
  • Storage under Mezz steps
  • Tackle storage
  • Twin macerated fish boxes with Eskimo Ice dump in port box
  • Transom livewell
  • Stbd ladder for direct access to aft bridge deck controls

The Salon entrance from the cockpit is slightly offset to stbd.  The salon feels huge inside thanks to her 21’7” beam.  The high gloss African mahogany woodwork exudes beauty and elegance to compliment a tasteful simple interior décor.  Large salon windows offer excellent natural light.  There is a large U-shaped beige leather sofa to port with a proportionally large high gloss teak coffee table. Immediately to stbd is the optional interior spiral staircase leading up to the enclosed bridge. Moving forward on the starboard side there is a large, updated Sony flatscreen TV and drink ice maker. Up one step, you transition from the carpeted salon to the Amtico teak pattern flooring of the galley and dinette level.  The oversized leather dinette is to stbd with a grey, white and black speckled granite table.  Matching galley countertops are across to port with (4) Sub Zero undercounter refrigerator freezer drawers (2) (2). The cabinetry is all raised panel, high gloss African mahogany in keeping with the rest of the interior.  The galley features everything a shipboard gourmet would require including:

  • 4 burner Whirlpool electric cook top
  • Deep stainless-steel sink
  • GE Microwave Convection oven
  • Granite backsplash with deep slide out drawers
  • Excellent storage

Forward of the galley just before transitioning to the lower accommodations, there are two huge semi walk in storage rooms.  The stbd side houses (2) additional Sub-Zero refrigerators and the port houses AV components.  Both are highly valued additional storage areas.

Six steps down the centerline semi spiral carpeted stairwell brings us to the lower accommodations.  The layout below features a four stateroom three head arrangement with the highlight being the full beam master stateroom aft.

The full beam master is nothing short of magnificent and rare for a vessel her size.  The bed is an Island King with high gloss molded in night stands on either side. Additional master stateroom highlight include:

  • Large cedar lined closet port fwd
  • Port and stbd outboard molded in dresser drawers
  • Port and stbd hullside windows for natural light
  • Beveled glass mirror headboard with decorative X pattern wood framing
  • Updated Samsung flat screen TV
  • Ensuite head with marble flooring, granite countertops, Head Hunter Marine toilet, mirror medicine cabinet and large shower

Forward of the master to port at the base of the stairwell is the first of three heads.  It has day head access from the hallway and private access, if desired from the bunk bed stateroom just forward to port.  Across the hallway to stbd is the twin bed guest stateroom which has a full ensuite head.  Moving forward and across the hall we have an updated GE over under washer dryer.

In the forepeak of ASIAN PEARL is the VIP stateroom.  The features of this guest room include:

  • Island queen berth w/ mirror headboard
  • Dual cedar lined hanging lockers
  • Updated Samsung TV
  • Sculpted carpet
  • Elevated outboard storage cabinets
  • Storage under the bed
  • Climate controls
  • LED lighting
  • Ensuite head with Amtico flooring, granite countertops, Head Hunter marine toilet, mirror medicine cabinet and stall shower

The enclosed bridge is accessible from the main salon spiral staircase or the stbd side cockpit ladder.  The enclosed bridge offers a full weather protected, climate-controlled navigation station and a comfortable sky lounge. Visibility all around is excellent.  The high gloss African mahogany wood theme carries into the bridge.  There are two large leather captain’s chairs on centerline forward, flanked on either outboard side with additional fwd facing seats. To stbd, there is a sink and wetbar with a refrigerator. To port aft, there is a raised leather L shaped sofa.  The helm station fwd offers the captain a full array of navigation electronics to plan and execute safe passages.  Helm station electronics include:

  • (3) Garmin touch screen multifunction displays for chartplotter, radar and sonar functions
  • (2) additional Furuno MFDs for redundancy
  • Hatteras shipboard monitoring system on designated centerline screen
  • CAT electronic controls with back up control panel
  • Garmin Auto pilot
  • (2) ICOM 605 VHF radios
  • ABT Hydraulic bow thruster controls
  • Fusion stereo controls

There is a door on the aft bulkhead of the enclosed bridge that brings you out to the aft bridge deck.  The aft bridge deck has new (06/24) Sea Deck custom flooring. To port is a fully equipped helm station with cockpit visibility for pelagic battles.  Also, the aft enclosed bridge window was custom designed to lower electrically for improved visibility and communication purposes.  There is additional aft facing seating outside for spectators and a nine-rod holder aft bridge deck rail.  Tower steps are accessible from either side and the captain can run from the tower with full navigation and communication systems.

The engine room is the nerve center of ASIAN PEARL and the beneficiary of meticulous maintenance and huge upgrades over the years. Both ZF transmissions were completely rebuilt and finished.  Both ONAN generators were replaced and have low hours: Stbd 415 Port: 1300. The engine room has been painted and detailed to be as clean as the rest of the vessel.  All of her AC compressors and air handlers have been updated.  Additional engine room features include:
