Accommodations

The interior of this boat is pure luxury! Upon entering, you see the galley, with brand new granite countertops, stainless appliances, and new cabinetry on the starboard side. To port is a leather sofa, and the cabin sole has been redone with modern scraped hickory. A state-of-the art Bluetooth sound system and a 40" Smart TV complete the salon.

Continuing down, the cabin area is divided into three cabins and 2 heads, which have also been redone with modern luxury. 6 can comfortable sleep aboard this boat, and the owner's suite features its on private head.

"Apex" is a fishing machine and a luxury cruiser in one!


Engines

The twin Detroit Diesel 12V-71 TI engines were completely rebuilt (including new sleeves and pistons) in 2014, and run beautifully.


Superstructure

The marlin tower features steering controls for high-visibility when fishing, and the bridge is spacious and just as much a place to lounge as it is a place to navigate.

The traditional rails were removed from the deck, and refitted low profile ones were added at the bow, for a sleeker, more modern look.


Construction

Unlike many similar boats, the Hatteras is sold fiberglass construction, making it practically bulletproof!

The hull has been repainted to a beautiful powder blue.

Broker's Notes

This is a great value--don't be afraid of the boat's age. EVERYTHING has been refitted and upgraded, and a comparable modern boat would have inferior fiberglass construction and cost you five times as much as this one will.
