About this Hatteras Yachts 53 Convertible


Until she was retired from the fleet in 1980, the Hatteras 53 Convertible was the gold standard for over 50' sportfish yachts of her era.  The long foredeck, equipped with tender and davit for Bahama and Keys cruising, flows seamlessly into the low-freeboard and spacious cockpit making for and excellent fishing platform. The sweeping sheerline combined with the aggressive appearance make this convertible relevant 35 years later.   The owner has enjoyed her for the last four years and the previous owner made Therapy a proven fish raiser and prize winner across several tournaments! Take this opportunity to own a piece of Americana history. The Detroit Diesel 8V92TI at 735hp cruise Therapy at 20 knots @ 1950 RPM with a  25 knots WOT 2330 RPM.
