Coming from the heart of the Hatteras fleet, the 52 Convertible has
always been one of our most generous boats. This broad-beamed,
generously-equipped machine has been able to do a lot more in 52 feet
than competitive models can manage in 54-55 feet. Its grand proportions
topside and below have made it a favorite among the sport fishing fleet.
And its functional, strictly business cockpit has helped to make the 52
the most envied boat in this size range. That’s why we’re proud to
reintroduce this classic fishing machine as one of our most attractive
convertibles. As generous as ever in cockpit, flybridge and interior
accommodations, and now about as fresh as any boat can be. The 52C is a
well-balanced, performance-engineered fishing machine. Designed by Jack
Hargrave, its modified-vee hull provides stability and poise in a
variety of open water conditions, with all the power you need to get out
and back in a big hurry.
The cockpit on the 52C is superb.
Measuring 12’ X 12’9” totaling 153 square feet of work space. This area
has been arranged to accommodate their personal needs of even the most
esoteric fish hunter. In addition to a standard 30” wide transom gate,
the non-skid fiberglass cockpit features a wealth of storage areas.
Deckhouse Galley arrangement provides topside food preparation and
dining off the salon, and the space for three staterooms below.
