Detailed information shared by the owner

The boat was originally a 50 foot, 1967 Hatteras Yachtfisherman. However, shortly after she left the Hatteras factory (licensed by Hatteras), the cockpit was extended five feet. This added space is perfect for fishing, diving and extended cruising. In 2003, the original 8-V 71’s were replaced with two new, smaller John Deere, 150 HP, turbo-charged diesels (currently at 1300 hours). The engine were a huge improvement from the old Detroits. Her speed has been reduced but she is quiet, fuel efficient (occasionally we get 3 NMPG at 7 knots) and easy to service. There are two separate, “stand up” engine rooms. One 50 gallon aluminum day-tank has been installed in each engine room. A built-in fuel transfer and filtering system was also installed. During the refit, the boat was set up as a coastal with emphasis on simplicity and efficiency. Each engine is equipped with an aluminum pan to catch any oil or coolant leaks. Solar panels have significantly reduced genset running time (the genset has less than 500 hours)

She has cruised extensively from San Francisco to Cabo San Lucas, explored all of the channel Islands off California, cruised most of the Islands off  the Pacific Coast of Baja, Within the Sea of Cortez, her anchor jas been set from Puerto Refugio at Isla Angel de la Guarda in the north to the tip of Baja to the south. She has explored Bahia de los Angles, including Puerto Don Juan; Isla San Pedro Martir; all of the Mid-Riff islands within the Sea and the extensive cruising grounds around Guaymas, Mexico.

The flopper-stoppers were designed to be used at anchor, they are effective and have made an untenable anchorage reasonably comfortable. They can easily be modified to function underway as active paravanes to reduce roll.

She has plenty of room to fish, dive and cruise, she has an extremely comfortable live aboard boat; even if you elect not to cruise, she makes a comfortable second home for snow birds. She is currentl moored in Marina Real, San Carlos, Mexico (not far from Guaymas). She is the perfect boat for the Sea of Cortez and the entire Pacific Coast from Alaska to Central America. A passage through the Panama canal opens up the Caribbean and the East Coast of the States.

Fresh bottom paint was applied in January 2018.

A 12 Volt, Village Marine water maker (Little Wonder) is aboard. A low pressure boost pump and a new membranes are needed for it to be functional, however, with 350 gallons of fresh water, we have found that a water maker is not necessary fro a coastal cruiser.

The flying bridge needs new shift cables to be fully operational (the old cables are on board but need to be refreshed).
