1996 Hatteras Cockpit Motor Yacht

Middle River, Maryland


  • I had the pleasure of running this boat recently and what a treat. Smooth running gear, clean burning Cat power, over 20 knots at wot and 16-17 knot cruise. The low cruise of 9-10 knots is very efficient at 18GPH at 1200 RPM.  
  • Highly updated and maintained. I doubt there is a better cruising package than this model combined with this condition. Easily handled by one or two people. Cat power. Huge comfortable air conditioned (and heat) aft deck with a full enclosure and shades. Hatteras quality cuts down significantly on your ownership costs. Easy to see just north of Annapolis.
  • Full exterior Awlgrip in the last 5 years with most winters indoors.
  • Blue Yonder is a 3 cabin and 3 head layout. She has benefited from owners who stay on top of maintenance and upgrades and it shows. The list of updates and overall condition over recent years is very impressive:
  • Optional T/3408 800HP (only 1,400 low rpm hours) dependable Caterpillar power with electronic engine controls
  • Bow thrusters
  • Hardtop and enclosure
  • TNT dinghy lift swim deck and 1000# davit on the hardtop (take your motorcycle?)
  • EZ2CY bridge and aft deck enclosures with sun shades
  • Interior Teak & holly "look" vinyl durable flooring   
  • New Garmin full electronics package including 8616 and 8612 MFD's, Radar, Auto Pilot, Weather, Engine vitals, fuel and more
  • AGM batteries and inverter
  • Owners purchased her in 2012
  • Spent many winters indoors at Pleasure Cove heated storage
  • Stack washer/dryer in dedicated locker
  • Photos are recent
