Hello, I am listing my 1985 Hatteras sport-fish 45’8” LOA 50’ that weighs 46,000 pounds with only 1400 original hours. I purchased this boat from the original owner who had it completely custom built for himself. There were so many upgrades that were put into this boat when building it in 1985 that you would think it was built in the 2000’s definitely way ahead of it's time The boat spent it’s whole life at the Golden Nugget/Trump plaza in Atlantic city. This boat never did ANY offshore fishing only in the bay, fluke and flounder fishing unbelievable . Since I purchased it I did a lot more upgrades,like- new interior, carpets, teak flooring, upholstery on the bridge and in the cabin, full canvas enclosure. This boat has 2 Garmin GPS’s, 2 Furuno GPS/Radar’s one 72 mile and another 24 mile, 4 VHF‘s, 3 depth finder’s, wind indicator, water temperature, New fusion radio on Bridge with new speakers, 3800 just in VHF antennas. The bridge on this boat is completely custom you will never see another one like this. I have never seen one and I have been in the marine business for 37 years. H and H towers designed the bridge back when they purchased the boat in 1985 and it’s unbelievable. Completely fiberglass molded in gauges, courtesy lights all over... the ceiling the floor the console you truly need to see. So while they were customizing the boat they made a built-in freezer on the port side of the boat to hold flats of bait and cans of chum. And a fishing station on the starboard side with controls and gauges to back down the boat when fishing. Also they made a really nice custom sliding door to enter the cabin and also a custom screen door when main cabin door is open. You will see in photos When you enter the cabin you will notice a full custom entertainment center that was also designed at the factory, along with a bar that is located on the starboard side. The owners also requested to delete the front windshield when the boat was being built. Down in the engine room you will find 2-6V92s fresh water cooled Detroit diesel engines 550 H.P each. I have gone completely through both of these engines. I changed all coolant hoses, fuel hoses, intake hoses, four new thermostats, two raw water pumps complete, two brand new circulator pumps, all new Rotella antifreeze, all fluids have just been changed. Oil and oil filter’s, transmission fluid and filter‘s, all fuel filters, also the generator has just been serviced completely. The prop shafts have been removed and I installed all new shaft logs with packing. Props have just been reconditioned along and the bottom has been freshly painted with all new zincs. The boat also has a brand new smart battery charger along with a power transformer for the electric. This transformer will make sure that you have the proper voltage coming into the boat at all time so you will not burn out any compressors. The boat hull bridge also has been freshly painted with awlgrip and all new stripes have been painted with Emron. The list truly goes on and on with all of the improvements that have been done to the boat,it is seriously ready to go fishing. The boat cruises comfortably at 1400 rpm’s approximately 21 miles an hour. I never run the boat past 1800 RPMs and either did the original owners. The engines run awesome and there are no coolant, oil leaks or fuel leaks anywhere in the boat. The entire bilge was just freshly painted everywhere....along with both engines freshly painted. Then of course all new hoses and fuel lines were installed. I could probably keep going but I’m going to save some questions for you. So if your interested in this One of a kind Hatteras and it truly is please give me a call and I can schedule an appointment for you to come and see her. You could reach me at 516-924-2831 So I guess you’re probably scratching your head right now wondering why am I selling this boat after all the work that has gone into it. Well the answer is I’m moving. Unfortunately after working on this boat for over three years I really didn’t get to enjoy it enough. So hopefully someone else will. I will entertain offers I have lots of photos I can share.
