Custom! Custom! Beautiful Custom!  From her entire salon, galley, and dinette total refit to her fresh professionally applied Awlgrip paint job, this vessel  is extremely special and is truly a “must see” for any potential 65’ Hatteras buyer. This is a 1988 65’ Hatteras but easily mistaken for a much later model yacht.  She has benefited from an extensive interior refit and a flawless exterior paint job in Dec. 2010.  This yacht has seldom been fished and spent most of its time cruising at 15 kts.  She is exquisite from stem to stern!
