If you are in the market for a high-end sports fish at a very reasonable price then you owe it to yourself to closely look at this boat. The engines are in good condition with low hours since over-haul. The boat was fully serviced in October, 2015 and has four new 8D batteries. The running gear photos and launch photos were taken in October, 2015 so you're not being invited to take a closer look based on old pictures. You've been told Detroits leak oil? Not true and this boat proves that's a "wives tale". She's not a fast boat---17.5 kts at 2000 RPM---but she's reliable. These engines will last a lifetime; will get you there---and back--- and are easily serviced and maintained without the necessity of a computer whiz. The owners cruised her extensively usually running at low speeds and otherwise since 2002, she has been a winter "home" and the care and attention given is obvious. NOTE: NEW CUTLASS BEARINGS; FRESH BOTTOM JOB!

Introduced in 1979, the Hatteras 43 Convertible was the replacement boat for the aging Hatteras 42 Convertible. She was built on an all new double chine hull with a wide beam and not only is the ride dryer than the old 42; the wider beam makes for a larger engine room and a more spacious interior. The standard two staterooms, galley down interior of the 43 convertible has a very spacious salon. There are twin berths in the master stateroom with insert for Kingsize and the forward stateroom includes a vanity sink & concealed toilet. Cockpit dimensions are a large 110 square feet. The flybridge is very spacious with seating for a small crowd.

The reported hours are 1150 BUT.....the port engine was overhauled in 2012 with re-built heads and new cylinder kits etc. It only has about 150 hours since then. The starboard engine was inspected; tuned; and, aftercooler removed and cleaned in 2013. Both engines run very well at rated RPM's.
Sleeps four in two staterooms. There is an en-suite master bathroom facility with separate day access and a guest stateroom head and wash basin.(no shower.)
Galley is located port side amidship down two steps from main salon. Due to its location, the salon is quite large for a vessel this size.
