Named for the Owner’s precious five year old daughter ZARAY. This 52' Hatteras has gone through a tremendous amount of open checkbook upgrades and improvements, to make it one of the best buys of this vintage. The current Owner has put a lot of love into his 52' Hatteras and any Buyer will notice the amount of detail and care which has gone into her. The 3 large stateroom layout, along with a modernized Up-Galley arrangement, makes the Salon a very inviting and comfortable area to relax after a day at sea. As you walk in the Salon door you will recognize the new, tasteful, modern décor upgrades, such as the new headliner with recessed high output lighting, new under-the-counter stainless steel Subzero freezers and refrigerators, granite counter tops and a rich teak interior, make this 52' Hatteras hard to beat. The Owner has recently taken delivery of a larger boat, and wants ZARAY (the boat) to sell quickly. He is also open to smaller quality trades of a Center Console, PowerCat or smaller Express Cruiser.

As quoted from the Hatteras Factory Sales BrochureComing from the heart of the Hatteras fleet, the 52 Convertible has always been one of our most generous boats. This broad-beamed, generously-equipped machine has been able to do a lot more in 52 feet than competitive models can manage in 54-55 feet. Its grand proportions topside and below have made it a favorite among the sport fishing fleet. And its functional, strictly business cockpit has helped to make the 52 the most envied boat in this size range. That’s why we’re proud to reintroduce this classic fishing machine as one of our most attractive convertibles. As generous as ever in cockpit, flybridge and interior accommodations, and now about as fresh as any boat can be. The 52C is a well-balanced, performance-engineered fishing machine. Designed by Jack Hargrave, its modified-vee hull provides stability and poise in a variety of open water conditions, with all the power you need to get out and back in a big hurry.

The cockpit on the 52C is superb. Measuring 12’ X 12’9” totaling 153 square feet of work space. This area has been arranged to accommodate their personal needs of even the most esoteric fish hunter. In addition to a standard 30” wide transom gate, the non-skid fiberglass cockpit features a wealth of storage areas. Deckhouse Galley arrangement provides topside food preparation and dining off the salon, and the space for three staterooms below. (Hatteras Brochure 1986)
