2005 Hatteras 54 Convertible w/CAT warranty Caterpillar Advantage Platinum Warranty is good until September 2017!!!
April 2016- Bottom was soda-blasted and has a new barrier coat and fresh bottom paint, fuel tanks polished, hullsides waxed, buffed and polished, all running gear updated, helm hairs and fighting chair wood removed and re-varnished and finished like new. This is the way this boat has been kept. She is one of those boats. If you understand that term, then you understand what we are offering.
The JMC began her life as the Jarrett Bay Yacht Sales (now part of Bluewater Yacht Sales) dealer demo boat, featured in a few regional boat shows and fished in a few local tournaments before being sold as new to her current owner in the Fall of 2007. The boat has received the very best of care and maintained by both the dealership and her owner. The owner has employed a full-time captain and crew for the entire period of his ownership, and the boat is kept in excellent condition at all times- washed and shammied after each use, full detail and polishing (including the tower) 2-3 times per year. This care is obvious, and most people who see the boat assume she is much newer. JMC has been used primarily as a day-boat and has rarely even been slept in. She has spent her summers in Virginia Beach, VA and the majority of her winters in Charleston, SC. It is a very rare day that she is not attended to in some fashion.
JMC is powered with the preferred CAT C-32 1650hp option (2800 hours), which gives her an easy cruise at 33 knots if desired, and 39-40 knots on the pins. Other notable features include: Pipewelders tuna tower with controls, Rupp outriggers and center rigger, electric teaser reels, Pompanette teak fighting chair with rocket launchers (plus the ladderback which has never been used), new Dometic chipped ice machine (late 2015), plumbed and wired for watermaker, 2nd fuel transfer pump installed, High Seas electronics package (see full specs), SAT TV system, 42 flat screen TV in salon, 20 LCD TVs in master and VIP staterooms, 2nd 50 amp power inlet and cord (in addition to the cable master cord and inlet), new LCD underwater lights, in-step refrigerated drink box, new custom settee and ottoman in salon, new enclosure, shaft tubes, forward and aft facing spreader lights, lockable rod storage on flybridge, custom rod storage locker in master stateroom, and the list goes on...
This boat has to be seen to be believed. Easily one of the nicest production sportfishing yachts of her vintage anywhere. Owner is looking to move up and is seeking offers. Reasonable seller!
