53' Hatteras 1979 TIRIJA II


"Tirija II" is a beautiful 53 Hatteras Yachtfisherman or in today's terms Cockpit Motoryacht.  She has been lovingly kept by knowledgeable Hatteras owners who purchased her close to twenty years ago in Michigan and have enjoyed her up and down the East Coast with the primary base being the Chesapeake Bay.  The boat has notable features including a complete paint job 7 years ago by Composite Yachts in Cambridge.  The decks have been Awlgripped and the brightwork has seen Awlwood or Awlbright finish.  The galley has been redone with top of the line appliances, beautiful Corian counter and table tops.  Updated Garmin electronics, hardtop, inverter, fiberglass framed galley windows, re-chromed windlass, Stidd helm chair, turbos replaced and new fiberglass exhaust are just a few of the many updates "Tirija II" has seen.  
Currently in Annapolis after a successful transit up from the Keys, she is ready for her next adventures and can be seen by appointment. A beautiful Hatteras not to be missed!
