2001 Hatteras 55 Convertible

Catawba Island, Ohio



Absolutely the finest Hatteras 55 Convertible available! Completely fresh water boat until October 2012 when it was cruised from the Great Lakes down to the Chesapeake then Charleston. Then she returned to fresh water and is owned by knowledgeable owner that wants to move to a bigger boat.

"Infiltration" is a stellar example of the smooth riding 55 Hatteras. This is absolutely the finest example of a 55 Hatteras anywhere on the planet!  She has benefited from being a northern freshwater boat most of her life with every winter spent in indoor heated storage on the Great Lakes. This boat has NEVER been winterized!  The boat shows excellent from the exterior paint to the interior to the engine room and bilges. This boat has never been fished! She does not even have outriggers. She sports a swim platform with a transom door and a Freedom Lift for the dinghy. Cockpit features a entertainment table!  The current owner spent quite a bit of time finding a boat of this caliber and then has continued to improve on her with updates and excellent maintenance practices.


Pier 33 is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Marine Unlimited.
