1988 Hatteras Convertible

Madisonville, Louisiana


The 45 Hatteras is an enlarged version of the popular two stateroom design of the 43 and used the extra feet to enlarge the cockpit improving the fishabilty- a great improvement over the 43. This boat received the modernization that Hatteras added in 1989 regarding the forward window treaments/enclosing and updated salon pocket door, making her look newer than she is. New canvas and Aft Awning combined with the other upgrades changes the look and feel of M/V Travelin Light adding to an already great value. She has the features and benefits of a newer vessel without the upgrade in price.

This Hatteras Convertible offers duel lever engine control, 951 Northstar GPS with differential, Digital Tachometers, a NEW Raymarine C80 Radar and GPS Chart Plotter and for those who love to fish -- Outriggers for Deep Sea Trolling and much more.
