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!

Depending on the docking situation BEST DAY can be boarded two ways……by the stern swim platform or by the midships boarding ladder on a fixed dock. We start our walkthrough boarding amidships. Entrance doors on both the port and starboard sides lead into the pilot house. The weather protected pilot house has a large bench seat for underway Captain, guest or crew visibility. She offers a full complement of updated navigation electronics including:
Facing forward on the starboard side of the pilot house is a stairwell that leads below to the forward lower accommodations. Facing aft there is a stairwell to the flybridge and a passage way to the galley and salon.
Taking the stairs forward to the lower accommodations leads us to a small foyer. There is a full size stand up washer and dryer at the base of the stairs. To port we find the forward guest bunk room. A few steps down and towards the bow is the forward VIP stateroom. Each of these staterooms have corresponding heads with private access. Aft of the foyer there are a couple steps down into the mid ship multi berth stateroom and private head. This 4 berth mid ship state room is versatile and has aft bulkhead door into the engine room.

Returning back up to the main level we can walk aft from the pilot house into the galley and salon area. It is nice that there are no step ups or step downs and the entire main level is flush deck. Immediately to starboard we have a large U shaped leather dinette with a Corian table. Directly across from the dinette is the open concept galley. The aft bulkhead is open for clean sightlines into salon, pass through serving and a connected salon breakfast bar. The galley has everything a shipboard gourmet would need including:
Continuing aft of the galley and dinette is the full beam main salon. The 18’2” beam and large windows really help give BEST DAY an open airy feel. Her salon décor is simple and tasteful. There is a stairway leading down to the aft accommodations to starboard. Aft of that is a large leather L shaped sofa and oversized ottoman. The carpet was new in 2015 and is beige with a white trim decorative pattern. Port side corner aft is a large dark wood cabinet housing a pop up flat screen TV. Port side in the salon there is a small table and nautical lamp sandwiched in between a kids fish pattern chair and a grown up lounge chair. Other features include:
AFT DECK AND COCKPIT SPORT DECK
There is a large sliding glass door from the main salon to the aft deck entertaining area. Highlights include:
AFT LOWER ACCOMODATIONS
The stairwell on the starboard side of the salon leads down to the lower accommodations and a second engine room access door. At the base of the stairs is a small foyer. There is a linen closet to port and engine room access on forward bulkhead. The guest bunk stateroom is across the hall. In keeping with the versatile stateroom arrangement this bunk bed room could be utilized by guests, crew or kids. There is a desk, book shelves and a chair that would make for a nice owners/captains office, kids video game desk or media center.
AFT GUEST STATEROOM
The full beam master stateroom is located aft and is one of the many highlights of “BEST DAY”. There is tons of storage in the master with build in dresser drawers on both out board sides. A walk in cedar lined closet compliments this storage space well and makes for an overall very livable stateroom. Additional master stateroom features include:
Stand up shower/tub
Fresh water toilet
Large mirror with 2 sliding vanities
Back to our entrance and the starting point in the pilot house. The starboard stairwell leading up bring us up to the flybridge entertainment deck. This open air deck has a Bimini top for sun protection and is open to enjoy the salt breeze and outdoor yachting lifestyle. Forward on the bridge is a helm station for navigation and aft is a bar and expansive seating area. Other flybridge highlights include:
