50' Hatteras Motor Yacht 50


ATHENA is a very popular, well-constructed older Hatteras 50 Motor Yacht. She has modern lines and is a big aft-cabin cruiser which has always attracted top-shelf buyers. She is built on a beamy modified-V hull with an unusually deep keel. This is a large, roomy yacht and would make an ideal live aboard.

She is the two-stateroom floor plan with dinette and galley-down. The salon is spacious and well arranged. Her engine rooms have near-standing headroom and excellent access to the motors. The aft deck is large with room for an array of outdoor furniture. Topside, the helm is forward on the flybridge and there is seating for many people. Additional features include a broad transom, low profile radar arch, walk around double bed in the aft stateroom and excellent storage.
