Description

MOTIVATED SELLER!!!


This is a fine example of the classic 53 Convertible by Jack Hargrave. "MaxSamizer" has low hours on professional rebuilds, a new Northern Lights Generator with a clean bottom and two new compressors supporting her HVAC systems. The upgraded 1271 TI?s have high compression pistons, Walker Air Separators and produce 800(+) hp per side. Cruise is 20 knots at 1850 rpm resulting in surprisingly economical fuel burn. Custom climate controlled hard top provides dry and comfortable wheelhouse with dated but functional electronics. Recent addition of new Autopilot.

Without doubt, the 53 Hatteras Motor Yacht is the most successful medium sized motor yacht ever built, with over 600 of them between their various incarnations. The main flavors are the standard motor yacht, cockpit motor yacht, the extended deckhouse (ED) version of the early 1980's, and the 53 Convertible which is the same hull. They were in production from 1971 to 1989, a full nineteen years.


My view of why this yacht was so popular is a combination of excellent quality, good design, and a fair price. It certainly didn't have anything to do with performance because it is a relatively poor performer. Coming in at a whopping 55,000 lbs. in its original version, you need 1600 HP or more to move this yacht at the kind of speeds people like to have today. In all the years of its production, the weight never changed much. The hulls and superstructure are built like a tank with the bottoms about an inch thick with balsa cored sides and decks. The coring is rarely a problem unless someone has drilled the decks full of holes and improperly attached equipment. All things considered, these are first rate production motor yachts,  Undoubtedly the most popular large sport fish ever built, its still a neat boat in my view. With much of the weight further aft, her performance is quite a bit better than the motor yacht, and I love to watch one these thing plowing through the tide rip.

If you are searching for a top-quality, comfortable, and seaworthy watercraft that will last, the brand Hatteras is the best place to begin. Their designs produce a more comfortable, safer, and drier ride than other yachts of similar size. The hulls and sides of Hatteras watercraft are made with resin-infused solid fiberglass with no "fillings" to lessen the overall weight. Hatteras hulls feature a downward angle chine with hull side ?step-outs? to help reduce spray while increasing the beam above the waterline for more cabin space. Hatteras Yachts will withstand more significant impact with less damage than others experience. Effectively absorbing a collision with a hidden log or other objects at sea can be a life-saving feature.
