Vessel Walkthrough

Boarding PISCOLA from amidships one can enter the boat via the port or starboard Pilothouse sliding doors.  The Pilothouse has a large centerline helm, a pilot seat and the steps to the Flybridge.  Just aft of the Pilothouse is a very large Galley with a dinette on the starboard side.


Continuing aft is the full beam Salon (this is an option as walk around decks are standard.).  The Salon of PISCOLA is as large as you will find this series of boats.  A small landing aft of the rear Salon door leads to the five foot Cockpit with transom door, swim platform and access to the Engine Room.


The lower deck accommodations are reached via the stairs in the forward end of the Salon.  Starting forward is the full beam Master with ample storage and a full Head with a tub.  Going aft are two Guest Staterooms with a pair of twin lower berths and full head in the Starboard Stateroom and a modified double with full head in the Port Stateroom.


There is an additional Guest Cabin forward of the Pilothouse and reached via Pilothouse stairs with a double and a single berth and a head en suite.  This cabin is all the way forward.  At the bottom of the stairs is a Crew Cabin for two with a private head. 


The huge Flybridge is well laid out for entertaining with ample seating and a tender and davit aft.




The Pilothouse is entered via the sliding port or starboard entry doors.  The sole is a varnished teak parquet.  The centerline helm has an expanded electronics area as well as the yacht’s main electrical distribution area to port. 


Further aft behind a generous amount of deck space is a three person helm seat with four drawers, a pull out footrest and four cabinet drawers below.  To port is a storage locker with a lift up top and to starboard are two additional storage cabinets and eight carpeted steps to the Flybridge.


Forward are curved steps to the fourth Guest Cabin and the Crew Cabin.

PISCOLA was updated in 2011 with new electronics, and generators as well as numerous mechanical updates to her mechanical systems (hydraulic and air conditioning). 


Of special note is this is hull number three out of the seven Hatteras 77's built.  The advantages of the aft engine room layout are many including short prop shafts, a quiet midship master cabin and sea keeping abilities thought to exceed those of the 70 Series models with midship engine rooms.


PISCOLA is seriously for sale and easy to see.



While every effort was made to list all pertinent included equipment aboard PISCOLA, there are some personal belongings aboard.  Prospective purchasers should assume any item not specifically mentioned herein will not convey at closing. 

Specifically excluded is the Caribe tender to be replaced with a Nautica 14' tender and the Honda Jet Ski.
