1988 Hatteras 70 Cockpit Motor Yacht
Boat Type: Motor Yacht Address: Chester, MD, US Price: $288,500


"Wanderer" has had some very nice mechanical and system upgrades by her current owner to get her ready for extended cruising and live aboard. His change in plans brings her to the market at a very attractive asking price. She needs some exterior cosmetics - teak brightwork refinish and a renew on her feature stripes among them. Interior decorating is serviceable but could benefit by a refresh.

She was a "Lauderdale Lady" when new, offering the VIP Layout and many custom upgrades. She had a major refit in 2010 that included main engine overhauls on her 12v71ta's. "Wanderer" is a nice value for new owners looking for a healthy pedigreed yacht on which they can add their own personalization. The original list price of this model when new was $1,215,800.

"Wanderer" is a factory 4 Stateroom, 4 Head Wide-Body Cockpit Motor Yacht with full beam engine room and the preferred VIP Layout. Originally customized as a "Lauderdale Lady" by Allied Marine, this is one of Hatteras' most successful and sought-after models.

The full beam master stateroom has a private stairwell from the main salon and is aft with private head, whirlpool tub and shower. The other three staterooms are foreward, joined by a stairwell from the pilothouse leading down. A VIP guest stateroom is amidships with a walk-around queen, private head and shower. Another guest stateroom is to port with twin berths, and forward is an over/under berth stateroom.

The pilothouse features port and starboard doors and a stainless steel spiral staircase leading up to an expansive fly-bridge with custom wet bar & stools. This is a factory original cockpit model, ordered with a larger aft deck (5' x 18') to accommodate covered outside seating.
