Thread: 53 hatteras

  1. #1

    53 hatteras

    I am looking to buy a 53 hatteras. I found 2 of interest. Does anyone know Jimmy's Girl ? She is in Mobile Alabama, has cummins CT6BAs installed (used 400- hrs. running take-outs) in 2012.
    Asking price 110K.

    The second boat is in New Orleans...a 53 ED. This boat is all original... 871ti, niaid stabilizers, but I don't believe that the owner spent much on maintaining the systems. Asking price is 130K.

    Any suggestions?

    This might be too simple but I would get them both surveyed by someone knowledgeable of Hatteras yachts and then decide based upon which model I prefer.

    My guess is neither one will plane. Both seem to be priced in line with each other. I'd look at them before a survey and seatrial.

    Remember most sellers will not allow a survey or seatrial until under contract.

    This.

    Have you laid eyes on either one? You need to root through them yourself. Pictures don't tell you much.

    What is a CT6BA? Afaik it s either 6BTA or 6CTA. What power are they claiming?

    The naiads are a big plus if they work, although personally I m not a big fan of extended deckhouse. It really reduce the amount of air in the aft deck. Not a big deal up north but way too hot down south

    So an engine that doesn't exist.

    That's not a good number.

    What years? It makes a difference. Also how do you plan to use her. Live aboard or weekend and vacations. Ocean? Etc

    Re: 53 hatteras

    So they’re 450hp 6CTAs She ll plane.

    It all comes down to what condition these 2 boats are as well as the projected use.

    Re: 53 hatteras

    The engines are 6CTA s. I plan to use it as a liveaboard, with some carribbean cruising . I have looked at 1 boat, but intend to spend some time investigating others. One thing i have noticed is that most if not all of the older model 53s seem to have saturated aft decks, behind the flybridge, usually under the dinghy . I wonder what it would cost to repair the damage ?.

    I will advise when I find "the one".

    regards

    martin
