Of the 41' Hatteras convertible models built in this model's run from 1986 to 1991, this hull has many of the preferred options available including the 535hp 6v92 which allow a reasonable 25 knot cruising speed and solid sea keeping qualities. This layout with the galley up and forward to starboard makes for more comfortable salon seating. Hatteras teak interiors had set the standard for all convertible builders during this time period. The walk-around double berth forward with head entry door is comfortable and accommodating. A couple of closets and several large drawers afford good storage for staying aboard. The guest stateroom has upper lower berths and a nice closet also.
Set up for cruising or fishing/diving, there is a walk-through transom door to a fiberglass swim platform and retractable cockpit shade, plus a rectangular teak table with a couple of folding deck chairs. For fishing days, the table can be switched out for a teak 4-rod Release rocket launcher and drop down the pair of double-spreader Rupp outriggers. There is an underdeck fish box and tackle center forward with cockpit sink. Safe passage to the foredeck is assisted by her full bow and deckhouse railings. There is a practical anchoring system with electric windlass, fiberglass pulpit with CQR 45-pound anchor and rode.
This boat owner has primarily enjoyed his boat when anchoring up for the weekend. Since his destinations were usually short distances, the main engines have remarkably low hours (775 per hour meter). The starboard motor has had an overhaul. The Onan generator has higher hours since it was operating through most of the anchored times and in 2021 the power end of the genset was rebuilt. Although lightly equipped and in need of some updating, this Hatteras with a little refresh could easily become a great choice for a cruising couple or small family.
