80' Hatteras 80 Motor Yacht



Hatteras 80 “PREFERENCE” is an extremely well cared for and upgraded luxurious Eurostyle Motor Yacht with four ensuite staterooms, day-head plus crew quarters. Her sleek exterior styling and a generous beam contribute to the expansive feel of the Hatteras 80 Motor Yacht. The interior accommodations are as extravagant as they are spacious. Inside, the full-beam salon opens up a host of entertaining possibilities. The 21’3″ beam incorporates Hatteras popular convex hull design and, of course, a solid fiberglass hull bottom for strength and durability. Seven-blade propellers and deep gear ratios contribute to the renowned Hatteras ride. The more desirable and efficient engine package, twin 1,550hp CAT C-30 engines cruise the Hatteras 80 MY at 20 knots (low 20s top). “PREFERENCE” has recently gone through an extensive interior refit by IK Yacht design and complete electronics upgrade by Electronics Unlimited in Ft Lauderdale. Boat is held in a single asset transferable LLC.

80 Hatteras Motoryacht Overview

Available with an open flybridge or enclosed Sky Lounge (u0022Preferenceu0022 being the open version), the Hatteras 80 is a luxurious Eurostyle motor yacht with four ensuite staterooms (plus a large captainu2019s cabin aft) and an impressive 21'3u0022 beam. The Hatteras is constructed on a low-deadrise hull with propeller tunnels to reduce shaft angles for improved thrust and less draft. The accommodations are as extravagant as they are spacious. Dominated by a vast main salon with hardwood flooring and indirect lighting, a formal dining area for eight is forward, opposite a huge country-style galley to port with extensive granite counters. Forward, there are two settees in the pilothouse together with port and starboard deck doors. A day head is on the starboard side just before the stairwell to the lower staterooms. Below, the enormous full-beam master suite has a king bed, walk-in wardrobe, and vertical hull-side windows. Crew quarters (aft) consist of two cabins, one with single berths and the other with a double berth. The spacious aft deck features a full overhang, teak table, and molded-in lounge. Twin 1,550hp Cat C-30 engines cruise the Hatteras 80 MY at 20 knots (low 20s top).
