Note Regarding Engines
Brand new Caterpillar 1600hp C32A’s have been installed in “TAZ” by Gregory Poole Caterpillar in Beaufort, NC. This work was completed at Jarrett Bay Boatworks in January, 2016.
Providing background, on the way North an internal coolant leak was discovered by Caterpillar in one of the original motors. Warranty covered its full repair but the owner wanted no doubts left about his yacht. In order to have the engines match the overall “like new” feeling this boat delivers he decided to work with CAT and replace both engines with brand new upgraded 1600hp C32A’s. These motors have now only 580 engine hours with CAT warranty till 1/2023. This existing CAT warranty, can still be extended for an additional 3 years if so desired.
Overview and Accommodations
“TAZ” is a highly desirable late model Hatteras Motor Yacht that is in like new condition. With very low engine hours she is still covered by her Caterpillar warranty. “TAZ” offers a wonderful arrangement including a beautiful salon with formal dining, country kitchen with full size high end appliances, walkaround side decks, integrated hardtop with sunroof and climate controlled bridge, abundant entertaining space whether it be on the aft deck, flybridge, or forward sun lounge and more! Below decks a four stateroom layout provides a full beam master midship with king sized berth, opulent master head with his and hers vanity and abundant locker and built in drawer space with a full walk in closet. The guest staterooms consist of a queen VIP to port with private head access as well as a forward queen stateroom with private head as well. The fourth stateroom is a comfortable bunk arrangement. All staterooms have flat screen TVs, cedar lined hanging lockers, built in drawers and cabinetry and under berth storage. A large foyer area between the staterooms houses a washer and dryer in cabinets and additional linen storage. A large day head is also located on the main deck for convenience.
The flybridge on “TAZ” is something to experience with a sprawling layout that features a comfortable helm forward equipped with top of the line redundant electronics, STIDD captain and companion chairs and a full glass windshield instead of forward curtains. The windshield elegantly blends back into the integrated hardtop with a large retracting sunroof. With EZ2CY installed January, 2017 sliding side panels and curtains aft, the bridge is easy to close up to enjoy the benefits of the air conditioning and heat on certain days but at the same time doesn’t confine you providing quick access to your surroundings by opening up the sunroof and curtains within minutes. Aft of the hardtop the boat deck provides room for a tender but also room for safety gear like canister life rafts as well as a cabinet that features dual electric grills. A stairway done in solid teak treads leads from the boat deck down to the aft deck providing an entryway to and from the flybridge both from the interior and the exterior of the vessel. *The tender that is currently on board, does not go with the sale of “TAZ”.
All glass services have V-Kool window film.
A unique feature to the Hatteras 72 Motor Yacht is also its comfortable crew quarters which are conveniently accessed from both a hidden entrance door in the salon as well as by way of a bustle door aft. “TAZ” has a custom arrangement allowing for two cabins in this area, a private bunk room as well as a stateroom with double berth. Whether used by an owner operator as extra guest staterooms or by a crew on a captained boat this area is finished with great attention to detail, has a private head with stall shower and an additional washer and dryer. Access to the engine room is through this area and the engine room is separated from this living space by a door. The engine room is what you would expect from Hatteras. Wide walk in space with full 6’7″ stand up headroom and the ability to get to all sides of the engines. By Hatteras incorporating fiberglass tanks into the stringer area of their boats the center of gravity is kept lower and you don’t have restrictive saddle tanks taking up space in the machinery area. The engine room has dual 27.5 kw generators w/938 Hrs., water maker, full size tool chest and additional part and fluid storage.
