56 Motor Yacht
Length w/ Pulpit:
A classic twin-deck motor yacht perfect for cruising, entertaining or living aboard, the Hatteras 56 defined yachting luxury in the early 1980s. Heavily built on a solid fiberglass hull, a wide 18'2"" beam provides the interior volume of most 60-foot yachts. Below deck, the galley and dinette are down in the Hatteras 56 resulting in an expansive main deck area with the salon completely open to the wheelhouse. There are three staterooms and three heads on the lower level including a full-beam master with walkaround queen berth (or twin berths in early models) and ensuite head with tub/shower. The amidships VIP stateroom has twin berths, and the second guest stateroom (or crew quarters) is forward with over/under berths and private head access. Split walk-in engine rooms flank the corridor leading aft to the master stateroom, and a washer/dryer is located at the base of the companionway steps. Double doors open from the spacious salon to the semi-enclosed aft deck with hardtop and enclosure panels. Wing doors open to the wide side decks of the Hatteras 56. Topside, the flybridge has three helm chairs forward and facing settees aft. Cruise at 1416 knots with Detroit 735hp 8V92TI diesels.
