1978 Hatteras 37 Convertible – Stk# 40499

Stock # 40498
Brokerage Listing

An oldie but a goodie.  Impeccably maintained by owner who is also an engineer. 

The Hatteras 37 Convertible was introduced in 1977. It was designed to bridge the gap between tournament-grade sportfishing and luxurious family cruising.

Two Stateroom with one head interior with salon settee and galley up boasts solid teak paneling, quality hardware and furnishings with a comfortable layout.

The cockpit is a fisherman’s dream!  Large enough to accommodate a fighting chair or when cruising a nice Table.

Introduced as a replacement for the popular Hatteras 36 (1969–77), the 37 Convertible never achieved the widespread popularity of her predecessor in spite of her improved profile and roomier accommodations. She’s built on a solid fiberglass hull with twin chines, a long keel, and moderate deadrise at the transom. The 37’s galley-up, two-stateroom interior is paneled in teak, and a double berth became available in the forward stateroom beginning with the 1982 models. A stall shower is located in the double-entry head compartment. Large wraparound cabin windows give the salon a surprisingly spacious feeling for a 37-foot boat, and her tournament-style flybridge offers seating for five. Additional features include a molded bow pulpit, transom door, and relatively wide side decks. A lower helm was optional. At 29,000 pounds, the Hatteras 37 is no lightweight, and with only 330 gallons of fuel, she’s not a long-range boat.
