(LOCATION: Palmetto FL) The Hatteras 53 Motor Yacht is a Jack Hargrave design. Her long production run is a testament to her advancement of refined cruising. Cruising with a cocktail in hand requires a smooth quiet ride and the 53 MY does that with style. She features a flybridge, aft deck, walk-around main deck, large open salon, and private staterooms to insure room, comfort, and convenience.

On deck we start at the top with a flybridge with a bimini top. The upper helm has a 360º view and there is room for friends to share the view. Below is a walk-around main deck with foredeck lounge seating, side deck salon access, and aft ladder to a swim platform.

The salon is bright and airy with large windows for lots of natural light and custom blinds for privacy. Forward is a lower station with teak woodwork and a large ship’s wheel. There is a sofa and two easy chairs. The aft deck has casual seating and wet bar, perfect for relaxing, entertaining, or dining. 

The galley is down, forward of the helm station. It has teak cabinets, quartz counters, stainless steel sinks, under-counter dishwasher, large refrigerator / freezer with ice maker, Nutone cooktop, microwave oven, and booth-style dinette.

There are three private staterooms. The guest stateroom / crew quarters is located forward of the galley and features upper and lower berths, private head, and laundry. Aft of the galley is the companionway with walk-in engine rooms to either side. Amidships is the guest stateroom with twin berths and private head compartment. The master stateroom is aft with walk-around queen berth, dressers to either side, mirrored dressing table, hanging lockers, and private head with vanity and shower.

Mothership is powered by twin Detroit Diesel engines designed for quiet, smooth, economical, and dependable performance. Mechanical features include four Cruise Air reverse cycle HVAC units for interior comfort and a 17-kW Onan generator for offshore electrical power.
