Temptress is an incredible example of the classic Hatteras motor yacht. Her interior decor, last updated in 2007/2011 shows beautifully, incorporating all the matched tiger striped teak so prized in the earlier Hatteras with custom furnishings, lighting, and an exhaustive list of updates.
Easy access to the fully enclosed pilot house and aft upper main saloon is provided through custom hand crafted side entry sliding doors added in 2007. The main saloon, aft of the pilot
house was created with the addition of a custom, hard aft bulkhead with an expanse of window and aft door when the Temptress was first purchased by the current owner.
The aft line handling deck provides both comfortable outside seating and easy functionality for docking.
The main saloon includes a granite topped built-in entertainment center (housing the flat screen television and air conditioning), low pile tight weave tropical carpeting and a custom made full sized “L” shaped sofa. End-tables, cocktail tables and two custom made upholstered chairs round out the charm of this warm, comfortable and inviting space.
The 6.5′ custom sofa in the pilot house sits atop eight storage drawers for all of the piloting essentials. The leather upholstered helm seat can be removed from the pilot house and affixed to the floor of the main saloon for added seating during non-crusing times.
Forward and down three steps is the large Dining Saloon, a wonderfully unusual feature for a yacht of this size. Again the original teak overlay and joinery remains to add charm to this spacious and elegant dining saloon. Storage abounds in a hand painted Chinese chest and ample built in cabinetry including a wine rack. Two custom cabinets port and starboard house the ample fore deck sun seat cushions.
Continue forward down three beautifully finished teak steps to a full width Galley/Dinette. The functional galley includes a full size four burner black ceramic GE Monogram stove, stainless steel GE Profile Convection Oven/Microwave with multi-speed vent, stainless steel Kitchen Aid Dishwasher, full size stainless steel LG French Door Refrigerator with freezer draw. The ample Avonite counter top incorporates a deep molded sink with chrome faucet, Kitchen Aid disposal. The over-the-sink port light was added for both visibility and good cross ventilation.
Access to the main engines, generator and batteries is also from this area, along with hydraulic hatch access to the galley based hot water heater and V-Berth storage forward of the galley.
The Guest/Captain’s cabin is located forward of the galley with separate head/shower and electric VacuFlush head. Extensive storage includes a cedar lined closet. Well ventilated with an overhead hatch and air conditioning/heating. The original upper and lower single berth bed arrangement was redesigned to provide a comfortable single plus berth, with beautiful designer wall
