78' Hatteras Motoryacht 1987
"CHRISTIE LEE" Started Life As A Mint Condition 68' Hatteras CKPMY And An Experienced Owner Who Could Not Find A Hatteras With The Ideal Layout Purchased Her And Decided To Rebuild Her With No Regard To Cost. A Major $900,000 Year Long refit Engineered And Designed By Naval Architect Langlois & Nadeau, Inc., Was Completed In November 1992 At Associated Marine Technologies In Dania, FL -- (Now Marinemax Hatteras).
This Complex Refit Enhanced The Original Layout significantly To Modern Hatteras Standards By Greatly Enlarging The Master Stateroom And Adding A His And Her Heads Aft with Center Jacuzzi Tub And A Very Large Walk In Closet To Port. The Original Guest Cabin Amidships Has Been Altered To A true VIP Suite. The Forward Crew Section Was Expanded To Accommodate Two More Staterooms With Privacy Door. The engine Room Was Modified To A Full Width, Walk Through Engine Room Like Todays Hatteras. The Original Cockpit Was incorporated Into The Master Configuration And Became The Large Open Aft Deck With An Extended Hard Top With Stairway To The Flybridge From The Aft Deck With Railing And A Custom Entry Way Into The Flybridge Seating Area. A New Cockpit Was added, The Rudders Enlarged With New Stainless Ones, Naiad Stabilizers Added And The Entire Yacht Was Painted In Imron.
The Flybridge Was Extended Providing Ample Room For Tenders And Water Toys. The Cost Of This Year Long Refit Was Over $900,000. Millions Have Been Spent On Her Since And The Current Owner Has Her In Excellent Condition.
In November 2014 The Engines Were Totally Majored With Over $150,000 Spent On Mechanical And Interior Work In The Past year 2014-2015. Many Interior Updates Summer 2015. Complete Bottom Job Fall 2018 And All New Silent Flush Toilets 2018.
This Custom 78' Hatteras sleeps 10 in 5 staterooms!!! The extended custom master with his/hers heads and Jacuzzi is aft. The VIP has queen berth is amidships and can be accessed by the walk through engine room or from forward. The third stateroom is up and to starboard, the fourth is up to port (crew) and the fifth is upper lower twins forward. This is a one of a kind totally custom interior created by AMT (Marinemax Hatteras Dania) when the yacht was only 4 years old in 1991 to create what is now today a "standard desired layout" on newer Hatteras with the exception that the Master on this 78 Hatteras is the largest in her class with His and Hers/Jacuzzi, and huge walk in closet with separate stairs to the salon and walk through engine room. Over $1 Million has been spent over the past 10 years keeping this one of a kind 78 Hatteras above the rest and her initial redesign cost over $900,000 in 1991-1992. This expansive fifth stateroom layout also is enhanced by an extra large aft deck with molded stairs to the huge Flybridge, aft deck controls, and a functional full fishing cockpit with hot and cold shower, built in tackle storage, and extended fuel tankage.Salon
The very large salon features a cream colored L-Shaped Natuzzi leather couch with large cherry wood coffee table to port side upon entering from the aft deck. To starboard is a small built in wet bar sink with marble top. Moving forward is a cutom stairway leading to the master stateroom and engine room. Forward of that on the starboard is the large entertainment center which holds a pioneer CLD 1030 CD video system, YAMAHA K420 cassette player and Adcom CFS six speaker selector for the surround sound. A custom cabinet provides storage and holds a pioneer CD player, Yamaha receiver, a 52" Element TV and a RCA direct TV satellite system with a modulator to all televisions. To port is a very large dining area that seats up to 8 at a beautiful cherry dining table. To port aft of the dining are two barrel chairs with side table. The recent 2015 interior refit included headliner and overhead lights throughout vessel, new marble flooring in the galley, helm area, and on the wet bar sink. and new carpet and runners throughout.Galley
The galley is fully equipped with Frigidare Elite side-by-side refrigerator with freezer ice maker, WP appliances 2012, coffee maker, can opener and a Black and Decker toaster oven. The cabinetry in the galley is in white mica and the flooring in the galley, settee area and wheelhouse is laid with South African granite. Starboard and across from the galley is the dining area that has a comfortable six person settee surrounded by mirrors.Aft Deck
Large 8' custom aft deck provides full fiberglass staircase to the flybridge which has hand rails and a large sliding hatch. On the flybridge there are handrails on the starboard side for safety when transiting the flybridge fore and aft. An opening door into the flybridge seating area makes this the preferred way to go to the flybridge when cruising, avoiding the steeper pilothouse steps. This is great for guests or kids that move from the cockpit and swim platform to the flybridge in bathing suits or just as easier flybridge access in general. There is a large teak table and teak chairs on the aft deck. Cockpit controls with thruster control make docking or light fishing much easier. The aft deck has hard sides and side windows to protect the aft deck from sea and spray. Second new boarding ladder added for direct aft deck boarding.Pilothouse
Large pilothouse windows provide excellent visibility. These windows were removed and re-bedded during the 2002 paint job.Master Stateroom and En-Suite Head
