"Family Affair V" is simply put about the nicest Hatteras Motoryacht that you will be able to find in this size and age range.  She has been thoroughly maintained, updated and cared for by a very knowledgeable Hatteras enthusiast.   Purchased by the current owner in 2010 here on the Chesapeake Bay, she has been kept predominately on the Northern Chesapeake (Bohemia River) under cover and in freshwater.  The owner has moved her down to the covered freshwater slips of Atlantic Yacht Basin in Great Bridge, VA for the fall and winter where she continues to enjoy the pampered life! 

With features such as Naiad Stabilizers, ABT Bow Thruster, New Canvas, New Dripless Shaft Seals, Completely Updated Galley, Tastefully Redone Interior Decor, Perfect Woodwork and numerous Mechanical Updates and Upgrades this is a rare opportunity to buy a truly beautiful classic Hatteras!

Accommodations & Layout

"Family Affair V" has about as much volume (interior and exterior) that you will ever find in a yacht in the mid 50 foot range.  Her traditional Hatteras flush deck design allows for three full levels of indoor and outdoor space.  Her main deck level features wide walk around side decks, a bow with sunpad, dunnage boxes and seating.  On both port and starboard side decks you will find doors leading into the pilothouse/lower helm area which then opens up to an extremely large and comfortable salon.  The salon area is bathed in natural light with large windows and a 360 degree view.  Aft of the salon is one of the "stars of the show" in the very comfortable aft deck.  Accessed via glass sliders that allow the salon to flow comfortably into this space, the aft deck is covered by the bridge overhang yet has full new canvas/Isenglass side curtains making for a great indoor outdoor "back porch" feel. It is a terrific place to relax, dine al fresco or sip a cup of morning coffee.
The upper deck is accessed via a ladder in the pilothouse and features a commanding view for the upper helm.  A captain and companion seat along with a wrap around u-shaped settee provide plenty of seating options and a table with storage beneath make this a great entertaining area or place to relax underway.  A new bimini provides shade to the area and the seating and helm have their own covers when not in use.  Aft of the settee is the boat deck which accommodates a RIB inflatable and davit crane for launching.
The lower deck is accessed via a stairway that leads down to a large totally updated galley and dinette for four.  Forward of the galley is a guest stateroom with upper and lower bunks, private head with stall shower, abundant locker and drawer space and a locker with a stackable washer and dryer.  Aft of the galley are the twin engine rooms and a second guest stateroom and head.  This stateroom features two twin berths and cedar lined lockers along with additional drawer storage.  The second guest head also features a stall shower.  Aft is the master stateroom which is full beam and has a walk around queen berth, his and her locker and drawer space and a private head with a third stall shower.
