~Making its debut at the 2004 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show was the 80 Motor Yacht Sky Lounge, an enclosed bridge edition that takes an already spacious arrangement and makes it the category leader for interior volume.
The 80's innovative enclosed bridge design provides the panoramic view of a sky lounge, along with an additional 252 square feet of accommodations. On the main deck, the Sky Lounge edition features an enlarged salon, additional sofas and club chairs, along with a unique country kitchen forward.
As strong sales have shown since its introduction in 2003, the Hatteras 80 Motor Yacht is already a proven hit among offshore cruisers. With the Sky Lounge introduction, Hatteras will further establish itself as the benchmark in the 80-foot yacht segment.
Draft: 5 ft. 4 in.
Beam: 21 ft. 3 in.

Water tank capacity: 326
The profile of the new 80 Motor Yacht feaures sleek lines pleasing to the eye and a hull design that will exhilerate. Curved window frames with a swept-back radar arch and triple portholes for the master stateroom combine in an elegant, yet aggressive profile. The new hull bottom with its concave bow sections and aft prop tunnels will deliver a shallow draft and peak performance.
A quick walk up the circular staircase leads to the Sky Lounge, where the captain will find excellent visibility through two large window panels with padded mullions. The helm features Hatteras' computer-based systems monitor, which uses touch-screen technology to monitor all ship's systems, including real-time performance data, tank levels, visual and audible alarms, and data logs that provide trending information for engine diagnostics. The 80 also includes a generous electronics allowance, single-lever electronic controls with emergency backups, and twin helm chairs.
Owner and guests will cruise in unmatched comfort in the twin elevated lounges. Portside of the helm station is a desk with drawers and large chart flat, along with a wet bar, icemaker, refrigerator, and 32-inch pop-up plasma TV. The port aft window is electrically actuated, providing fresh air and increased entertainment space.
Exit through the sliding door onto the bridge deck, where you'll find plenty of seating and storage, thanks to an aft-facing riding seat and U-shaped lounge. The starboard locker contains twin Gaggenau electric grills. And a 1500-pound hydraulic davit will easily handle your choice of tenders.
Step down the molded-in stairs to the aft deck, where a large teak table and molded-in lounge will provide breathtaking scenes at anchor or while underway. Access to the swim platform is via molded steps port and starboard, while a door with stairwell provides access to the crew's quarters. Overhead lighting and a curved, stainless-framed sliding door accent the area.
