43' Hatteras Convertible 1981

This is an excellent opportunity to own "Bugsy" , an incredibly well-taken care of Hatteras for cruising or fishing. A great combination of gear and comfort, this one has it all. A two stateroom, galley down layout, you will not find a larger salon in a boat this size. From her teak and holy flooring to the built-in fiberglass tanks or to her low hour Diesels along with a newer generator and the hull is blister free. "Bugsy" has lots of upgrades and is ready to bring years more enjoyment to her new owner. Turn Key and a MUST SEE !!!!


Starting forward is the guest stateroom with a V-berth and head under cushion seat between the berths. There's a wash basin, plenty of storage and a closet. Teak and Holly floors in the staterooms and salon. Going aft on the port side is the galley with a full-size refrigerator with ice maker and princess stove. To starboard is a full head with a stall shower. Further aft to starboard is the master stateroom with twin beds that convert to one king size with insert, closet, security locker and plenty of storage. Moving up to the salon on the starboard side is an L-Shaped couch. There is also storage underneath. There are two chairs to port with a fold down table and wet bar with ice maker, then further aft you step down into a large cockpit.
