Length w/ Pulpit:
One of the few Hatteras misfires during the 1980s, the Hatteras 36 Sedan is basically the same boat as the Hatteras 36 Convertible (198387) but with a larger interior and smaller cockpit dimensions. Hull construction is solid fiberglass, and the hull is designed with moderate beam, a shallow keel, and prop pockets. Two mid-galley interior layouts were available in the 36 Sedan: a dinette floorplan with a single stateroom, and a two-stateroom arrangement without the dinette. Either way, the head compartment is very large and includes a separate stall shower. The interior is finished with traditional teak woodwork throughout, and its notable that a lower helm option was never offered. While the salon is very roomy for a 36-footer, the cockpit is too small for any serious fishing activities. Additional features include a big flybridge, good engine access, and fairly wide side decks. An unexciting performer with standard 350hp Crusader gas engines, the Hatteras 36 Sedan will cruise at 14 knots and reach a top speed in the neighborhood of 23 knots. Diesels were optional and a little faster. Note that production of the 36 Sedan lasted only two years.
