 Welcome aboard “BEST DAY”. It is my pleasure to offer this classic 74’ Hatteras Motor Yacht for sale. There is a great deal to like about her. Her classic lines are timeless. Her interior volume and livability are second to none. Her Hatteras pedigree is best in class. Unlike some other motor yachts of her vintage, she is no slow poke. Her 3412 - CATS will push her at 18 - 20 plus knot cruise and will do so in hydraulic stabilized comfort. Her hull has not been stretched from a previous model nor was her cockpit added after factory delivery. She is a factory 74 with a 18’2” beam and a custom 5 stateroom layout! This layout will offer special appeal to the family cruiser. She is kid tested and family approved! She will also hold some appeal for any potential charter venture. The versatile layout can accommodate family, guests and crew. Her knowledgeable owner has put hundreds of thousands of dollars into her for mechanical maintenance, ship systems upgrades and cosmetic improvement. She is a true classic Hatteras Motoryacht and is being offered at a price that represents tremendous value. You are invited to come see BEST DAY for yourself. Your next adventure awaits!
