This area is fully air conditioned with three units totaling 48,000 BTU. On a hot summer day in Florida this area can be as cool, (or cooler) as the salon thanks to its mesh curtains surrounding the whole area, her insulated hard top and rigid enclosures.

In 2015 the vessel received the custom installation of a Bulbous Bow by Viking Boat Works in St. Petersburg Florida. Bulb was designed by Bray and Associates and has substantially improved the vessels handling and performance overall.. It has minimized the unpleasant fore and aft pitching of the vessel as well as enabling noticeable improvements to the performance and fuel economy of the vessel at all speeds.
This Is a factory cockpit boat, not an aftermarket extension, thus the rudders are in the proper location. She has a deep keel and runs very efficiently in displacement. She has speed capabilities and can cruise at 16 knots if desired. Owner runs the boat at 1400 RPM'S and makes 11-12 Knots. The Bulbous Bow has improved the slow speed cruise efficiency by close to 15% without sacrificing high speed ability.
All of her tanks are molded fiberglass and integral to the hull. Her engines are aft of the staterooms which allows for much shorter shaft lengths and eliminates the need for the troublesome 2 piece shafts used on most Hatteras Yachts of her era.
She has great range potential if run at slower speed as current owner does.
In 2015 bottom paint was removed with media blasting, a new epoxy barrier coat was applied, and bottom paint renewed. Another coat of bottom paint was applied in 2016 and propellers reconditioned and cutlass bearings renewed (no blisters observed).
Rarely does one see a classic quality build, (such as this), come on the market. Only 7 of these "Custom Series" 77 Hatteras Cockpit Motor Yachts were ever built. The custom series Hatteras were built on a wider 18'7" hull than the other Hatteras yachts. They were designed as a crewed yacht with separation of the owners/guest staterooms and captain and crew living area.
Endless Summer has lived a good life. She has benefited from several owners who have taken a great original design and have improved upon it. The air conditioned flybridge with hardtop and full cooking, entertaining and navigational capabilities has created a vessel that was far ahead of her time and rivals many modern "Sky-lounge" designs at a mere fraction of her cost.
Endless Summer has just completed a major refit, without regard to cost, by an experienced yachtsman with a great eye for detail and quality. She has a current electronics and A/V package, her paint is good, and all systems have been upgraded, replaced or repaired in the past 24 months.
This is a very special yacht, she is a custom series yacht with a full beam aft engine room. She has an interior stairwell from the salon to her air conditioned flybridge, She is stabilized, and has a bulbous bow.
Her list of improvement far exceeds her very realistic asking price. For a discriminating yachtsman seeking a great opportunity, here one exists.
