With more than 600 launched, the Hatteras 53 is one of the most successful yacht designs ever built; PowerBoat Guide sums it up nicely by saying, "Some designs succeed so well in the marketplace that they earn the distinction of being industry classics. Such is the Jack Hargrave-designed Hatteras 53. Launched in 1969, she quickly became the standard by which other motor yachts were measured; two decades in production, she's still a popular yacht whose comfortable ride and generous accommodations have seldom been equalled". And both Motor Boating and Yachting magazines include the Hattie 53 on their lists of the 12 best designs of all time; they note respectively that the "spacious and comfortable Hatteras 53 is a true classic with ageless lines and a seaworthy hull" and "Jack Hargrave is at his best on the Hatteras 53".

This particular Extended Deckhouse example has been EXTENSIVELY MODIFIED to optimize a couple living on board--the original forward stateroom is now a walk-in pantry (with a washer/dryer, of course!), the guest stateroom was totally redone and is now a lady's sitting room, and the guest head shower was combined with the master stateroom shower to make a singe REALLY BIG shower, so Laissez Faire is in effect a single stateroom yacht (but the sitting room is easily converted back into a guest stateroom).

This work was done over the last 10 years or so to the tune of almost $800,000, you get a sense of this from the numerous pictures posted here but the boat really must be seen to be appreciated. Note that this is the Extended Deckhouse model, which offers a beam-to-beam salon, and combined with the fully enclosed flybridge deck this vessel is amazingly spacious for a 53 footer.

Machinery just serviced (late June 2020) and bottom painted November 2018.

Also note that she's lying in a downtown Sausalito slip that's potentially transferable; it's become  impossible to find a slip of this size here so this is a material benefit if you're able to take advantage...
