The Hatteras 52 Convertible was introduced as a 1984 model. The 52 is virtually identical to the Hatteras 50 Convertible which was released in 1980, except with a much enlarged Cockpit, which was a needed improvement. The 52 features 153 square feet of usable Cockpit space, making the 52 an instant success with serious anglers worldwide.
The Hatteras 52 Convertible’s hull was designed by Jack Hargrave. The hull was designed to run well in a head sea. The double chine serves two purposes, the first is to deflect the spray down, making this Hatteras dry, and it also allowed an increase of beam without adding more wetted hull surface, giving more interior volume without decreasing efficiency through the water. The modified V has a sharp entry to cut through choppy sea conditions. The V quickly shallows after the entry adding volume and buoyancy forward to keep the Foredeck above the waterline in even the most sporty of sea states. As you travel aft, the hull bottom gradually flares out for added stability. This stability is especially important at slower speeds such as when trolling for elusive big game fish.
The 52 is also known for its large comfortable Flying Bridge. The aft Helm offers excellent 360 degree views while giving the Captain a direct view into the Cockpit, which is also important when directing the fishing activity. In front of the Helm is a large comfortable seating area for guests and cavernous storage for all of your important equipment.
The Engine Room in the 52 is accessed from the Cockpit which is a thing of beauty. First, it is more quickly accessed from the Cockpit and Bridge and it keeps the dirtier Engine Room tasks out of the Salon. The 52 was also known for its large Engine Room, making access to all critical machinery relatively easy. The high headroom is also welcome by taller owners and crew.
Lastly, but not least, is the Hatteras 52’s interior accommodations. This Hatteras was offered with two different interior layouts. The first was a Galley down arrangement with two staterooms and more popular arrangement was a Galley up with three staterooms. The “Golden Olive” has the more popular Galley up arrangement (a.k.a. - Deckhouse Galley). The Deckhouse Galley arrangement allows for three staterooms while the Galley down arrangement only allows for two. The standard Master arrangement was a split twin Master Stateroom arrangement. Optional was a Queen Berth arrangement, which is the way “Golden Olive” is arranged. The Salon is bright, airy, with gorgeous wood finishes and joinery work and, most importantly, comfortable. Hatteras is famous for their quality, comfort, beauty and style and “Golden Olive” is an excellent example of Hatteras’ design and artisanship.

“Golden Olive” is an excellent example of a Hatteras 52 Convertible. This 52 has been fastidiously cared for since new and has not been altered beyond its original specifications. “Golden Olive” has never been used in Tournament Fishing and has been cruised exclusively at 2,000 RPM or below to ensure maximum engine life. Many experienced yachtsmen and yachtswomen will find this a huge plus as there is no question about extensive modifications, what yard did the work and what was the quality of that work and materials. “Golden Olive” is in excellent condition and can be used just the way she is, or she would make a great candidate for complete modernization with all of the original bones being intact. “Golden Olive” had only 200 engine hours when it was purchased by current owner, approximately 28 years ago. No expense has been spared in her maintenance program. The current owner knows the importance of keeping the vessel in top condition for no hassle operation. This 52 has been used regularly and has never been allowed to lie fallow and forgotten. For the first fifteen years of ownership, this Hatteras 52 was kept under roof, out of the sun and out of the elements. Since then she has been on an every 90 day wax program. The vessel has always been on an open checkbook maintenance program since new. Owner is selling "Golden Olive" due to his age (94).
