Broker Comments and Insurance Survey Available

After you review the long list of upgrades your first question is probably "why would the boat owner invest $50,000- plus and then put the boat on the market"?  The answer is two-fold and simple.  The first fact is they are extremely proud of their boat and have done everything in their power to maintain her to the highest standards and upgrade her in every area they could think of.

Second is they are ready for a larger Hatteras Convertible.  If you own a 55' Hatteras CV and will consider Cannonball as a trade please contact the listing broker.

There is an insurance survey from 2016 available upon request.

Two items to note to any prospective buyer.  When the new Sea Star steering was installed in '17 the lower helm was not hooked up.  The boat owner never uses the lower helm and did not hook up the new system.

The boat had a lightning strike in 2014 which damaged the bridge electronics.  The bridge electronics have all been replaced and there are no other issues from the strike.

This boat has no smells.  She looks, feels and acts like a much newer boat.  Fuel tanks have no issues or problems and the entire electrical system operates as it should.  

Any buyer can be comfortable buying this boat today and fishing the stream or even heading for the islands.  She is ready for her next adventure!
