Completely gone through in the fall of 2017, the "Nauti Lass" stands tall. Her upgrades and maintenance items that have just been completed include:

Her upgrades must be seen to be appreciated. She is ready for her new owners!


"Nauti-Lass" is a very special Hatteras Motoryacht that started life as a 1990 70' full motoryacht with the VIP layout (4 staterooms and private office) along with a full beam engine room. In 2001 she went through an extensive refit and cockpit extension. She received an entire interior upgrade in the fall of 2017, and was gone through and serviced mechanically as well. The boat received fresh bright white paint and a euro style transom designed in 2001 by Hargrave making her appear as a much later model MY and increasing the ease of use for watersports, entertaining and line handling/boarding. New electronics, A/V equipment, davit, carbon boarding ladder, etc. have been updated in the last few years as well.

Accommodation & Layout

"Nauti-Lass" is easily boarded either from the swim platform that leads into the euro style transom and cockpit or from her custom UMT carbon fiber tide ride stairway that can lead to either the starboard or port side pilothouse doors.  The cockpit, aft deck and flybridge have all had synthetic teak decking added giving an easy to maintain finish while providing a nice elegant contrast to the bright white paint.  The cockpit opens to the swim platform with a one step break along with custom removable hoop rails. Extensive storage is found under the cockpit sole as well as in a cockpit cabinet which houses an additional refrigerator and freezer.  To starboard, a curved stairway leads to the aft deck and lighting updates include LED courtesy lighting, underwater lighting and back-lit ship's name on the transom and bridge sides. 

Entering the salon from the aft deck one will be greeted by a bright and classy interior with abundant living space.  The headliner, lighting, soft goods, wall covering, and veneers have all been updated along with the galley and many ship's systems including the air conditioning and heating.  The solid bulkhead that once separated the salon from the dinette area has been opened up with a custom half wall providing an even more spacious feel to the salon and galley which allows for an easy and bright flow between these areas. 

A pilothouse lower helm provides protected operation in all sea and weather conditions and a custom stairway leads to the upper helm and huge flybridge and boat deck. 

Below one will find four staterooms and five heads including a powder room in the office.  Three of the guest cabins are accessed forward all with their own heads and showers and there is a very large VIP Stateroom amidship that would rival most boat's master staterooms.  Privacy is provided to the Master Stateroom with its own companionway leading down from the salon.  The Master Stateroom is full beam aft with a large head and walk in closet.  The office sits just forward of the Master providing extra convenience to the owner.



"Nauti-Lass" features an abundantly spacious salon that like the entire boat has seen numerous updates including lighting, soft goods, headliners, switches, and air conditioning controls. An entire redo in the fall of 2017 includes new carpet, couches, chairs, cabinet, lambrequins, sideboards and lighting.The once solid bulkhead leading from the salon into the galley/dinette area has been opened up and gives an increased feel of spaciousness and flow amongst these areas. The salon is great for entertaining with an oversized sectional sofa and barrel chairs as well as a formal dining area. A built in wetbarwith Scotsman ice maker and glass storage is forward as is the entertainment center. To the starboard side of the salon there is a Lucite surround with granite top that surrounds the stairway leading to the lower deck and Master Stateroom.
