53' Hatteras 53 Convertible 1972

$ 498,000

If you are looking for the ultimate fishing machine this 53 Hatteras Sportfish is for you! Fully refit with modern day equipment and esthetics, this vessel is truly one of a kind. The Hatteras 53 Sportfish already holds an a near impeccable reputation amongst convertible sport fishing boats however this vessel goes several steps further. One of the only drawbacks to this model when it was in production was that the factory 475hp Detroit Diesels could barely get this hull out of the water which is something you will never need to worry about again because "Fishing Machine" now packs a whooping 1600HP! The engines are NEW (only 28 Hours). Fishing Machine also features modern technology such as ZF transmissions with ZF electronic controls, to an 11 KW bow thruster. The interior has been fully modernized by the same designers used at San Lorenzo Yachts. If you are a fan of classic Hatteras Yachts and do not want to sacrifice performance to own one, or want a high performance yet stylish fishing boat but do not want to break the bank, this beauty is for you.
