72' Hatteras Cockpit Motor Yacht 1986

$ 589,000

“Fiddler” is a beautifully customized Hatteras 72 Cockpit Motoryacht. Originally built in 1986, her custom cockpit was added by Hatteras of Ft. Lauderdale in 1994 and the vessel upgraded throughout. 

Her aft Master Stateroom is unusually spacious and includes a study/dressing area large enough for two bunk beds. Forward she has two twin bed guest staterooms with heads, plus crew/guest quarters with a separate head. 

On the main deck, she features a large dinette opposite the fully equipped galley, an airy bright salon with dining for six, a bar and entertainment center, and comfortable seating throughout. The lovely teak joiner work is in excellent condition.

“Fiddler” has all the systems requisite for extended cruising or a liveaboard including an extra freezer, 800 GPD watermaker, Naiad stabilizers, full-size washer and dryer, and special generator sound attenuation for peaceful offshore anchoring. 

On deck, Fiddler has built-in foredeck seating and a large open aft deck and cockpit. The huge flybridge is covered and the helm sightlines are exceptional. With approximately 1500 hours on her DD 12V71 engines, she will top out at an amazing 22 knots and easily cruise at 16 knots. With her 1945 gallon fuel capacity, her range is nearly 2000 NM at 10 knots!

Fiddler is owned by an eminently knowledgeable marine restoration professional and boatyard owner. She is currently actively cruising and ready immediately for your next adventure.
