Overview

"Happy Ending" is a beautiful 1977 53 Hatteras Classic. She was delivered in September 1977 to her first owner and the fresh waters of Lake Michigan. She remained on the Great Lakes until coming to the Chesapeake for the first time in 1984.  She then spent a few years in Georgia until 2003 when she returned to the Chesapeake and to a covered shed slip for the last almost 20 years.  This is a 1977 model with the much preferred 1978 Hatteras flybridge design. The interior has many custom upgrades. This 53 is worth the look for any Hatteras Classic buyer. TRADES CONSIDERED - Offers encouraged!
