1969 Hatteras Convertible/SPF

San Pedro, United States


Really nicely kept classic Hatteras. The owners have used her regularly in the 21 years they've owned her, and the engines run great.  There's no generator, but a 2500W inverter with a dedicated battery bank takes care of power for extended stays on the hook. Two extra water tanks were added for 215 gals total.  Check out the photos and full specs and call for your appointment to view!

Step aboard into the cockpit and a ladder to port leads to the fly bridge and teak sliding doors to the salon. There are sliding windows to port and to starboard and a fixed windshield with newer frames and glass. Light and spacious inside. The salon is carpeted and furnished with two chairs and a two seat recliner that converts to a bed. A large chest of drawers to starboard holds the mounted TV and multiple manuals for the boat. 

All cabinetry and joinery throughout is of rich colored varnished mahogany. The passageway below has a teak and holly sole, and the staterooms are carpeted. To starboard is an inline galley, with a full size upright Magic Chef AC only refrigerator with separate freezer, Princess stove and oven and a large stainless sink.Plenty of counter space.

To port there is the guest stateroom with over and under bunks . A door leads to the head compartment that is equipped with an electric toilet, washbasin with vanity with mirror, and a separate shower stall.A second door leads from the bathroom to the v-berth master stateroom, also  accessed through a door at the end of the passageway.The v-berth is large, with lots of storage, and a couple of novel features - a small washbasin and a fully operable head concealed below the filler cushion.

Everything is neat and clean and very well kept.
