OVERVIEW FROM POWERBOAT GUIDE

"Some designs succeed so well in the marketplace that they earn the distinction of being industry classics. Such a boat is the Hatteras 53 MotorYacht. Two decades in production, the Hatteras 53 MY became the standard by which  other motoryachts in her size range were measured. Her bi-level, 3 stateroom,3 head floorplan is considered ideal in a motoryacht of this size and the split engine rooms soon became a Hatteras trademark. Resale values for 53 Hatteras Motoryachts remain strong in ALL markets"
