65' Hatteras Motor Yacht
1988 US$ 160,000


General Description

This 65' Hatteras is a beautiful motoryacht, originally customized by Hatteras of Lauderdale. Seasonally used and stored under cover during the winter, the Nicola II was one of the few 65's with a VIP stateroom and an aft stairway leading to the master. She is arranged with a galley-up plan, four staterooms down, large flybridge with surround seating and a small aft deck.

All interior décor was renewed in summer of 2013.

Actual Condition

The vessel was under way and stuck an object damaging the hull, all below the water line. Most of the damage had been on the starboard side of the keel and chines. The Nicola II was then driven to the marina where she was hauled and inspected.

The starboard side stabilizer was bent, and could be remanufactured by a good aluminum shop, or possibly ordered from the factory. She can be dropped back in the water and driven away on its own bottom with a small amount of time and repair work to be done.

Pilothouse includes a leatherette double seat with locker storage to each side and chart storage below. The helm console surround was recently refitted with black Corian. Galley Main deck galley is filled with natural light. Original mica countertop was replaced in 2012 by a U-shaped Corian unit with integral sinks, totally modernizing the workspace.

Other components include:
• Sharp Carousel II Microwave
• KitchenAid Superla Whisper-Quiet Dishwasher
• Whirlpool Sound Conditioned Trash Compactor
• Magic-Chef Full-sized Self-cleaning Oven
• General Electric Ceran white stovetop w/ four burners
• Amana fridge/freezer - full size
• Garbage Disposal

Opposite the galley, is a semi-circular dinette with leatherette seating around a Corian topped table.

Main Salon
It is reported the main salon was entirely renewed, including soles, carpeting, walls and window treatments, couch and loveseat.

The decor and media was refreshed in all of the staterooms in August of 2013: all bedding was renewed and each stateroom was equipped with a flat-screen TV.

Original mica countertops in all heads have been replaced with Silastone counters, featuring integral sinks. Laundry Bosch Axxis washer and dryer - lower deck VIP area Flybridge Upper helm console is of a modern design with excellent sight lines in all directions.

The original Hatteras wet-bar was removed in favor of a modern space-saving arrangement with clever bottle storage, under-counter icemaker, wine cooler, black granite counters and nautical style lockers.

Dining for six is forward to port in the main salon, utilizing an innovative circular table wrapped around the aft stairwell. Aft of the stairwell is a lounge area with occasional chairs, unique cocktail table and opposing settee. The décor is understated and tasteful and could be characterized as "New England Yachting".

More modern, is a new 32" flat-screen TV mounted above the bar area. Lower deck accommodations at the bow, on the lower deck, is a stateroom with a double upper / single lower berth arrangement and head compartment with separate shower. Storage areas include numerous drawers, full-height hanging locker and a cedar lined blanket locker. If an owner desired to keep crew, this stateroom would be very suitable.

Next aft, up two steps, is a guest cabin to port with matching twin berths. This stateroom includes storage more than adequate for two, natural light and teak bulkheads. Across the landing is a head with shower stall, which also serves as a day head.

Aft and down three steps, is the VIP stateroom of comfortable dimensions, with fore-and-aft queen berths; an inviting settee done in leatherette, abundant drawer storage, large cedar closer and pleasant daylight via portlights. Combined with the private, ensuite head compartment to starboard, this space occupies the yachts full beam.

Access to the twin engine rooms and master is available through an aft door. The master stateroom is nothing short of grand, with a king sized berth on centerline, natural light on three sides, twelve drawers, walk-in cedar-lined closet and a lighted vanity table. A generous head compartment includes a combination shower / Jacuzzi Tub. Fixed furniture is finished in a satin white lacquer, which enlarges this comfortable space.

Valences, curtains and wooden blinds are both functional and elegant. All staterooms are fitted with SMX digital climate controls, individual reading lamps and custom overhead lighting.

Flybridge social area is surprisingly large with surround seating around a custom Lucite table. Nicola II is equipped with a two-tier antenna mast mounted above the arch below, which is an entertainment centerpiece with flush mounted Weber LPG grille (2013), wet bar, fridge, icemaker and prep area. Seating and social space is generous; a dozen guests would not feel crowded.
