The Mickey Finn is a 1971 42′ Hatteras Convertible Sport Fisher that received a $250,000+ renovation in 2000, which included replacing all the thru-hulls, replacing and resealing windows, redoing the kitchen and head (bathroom) with corian counter tops and Grohe fixtures, redoing the electrical from bow to stern, and installing a brand new Northern Lights 10 KW generator that has 30 hours on it. The engines are rock solid Detroit Diesels, and the flybridge was equipped with a $10,000 custom fabricated fiberglass roof. The batteries were also recently replaced with dry cell batteries, and an Espar heating system was installed.

This is part of an estate sale, and all reasonable offers will be considered. I’m asking $62,500 or best offer!

About this boat-from the manufacturer:

The Hatteras 42 Convertible represented a big step forward in convertible design in 1971 with her full-width flybridge (the first in any Hatteras model) and her bold, more aggressive exterior profile. Construction was on the heavy side, and considerable flare was added at the bow. Her large 110-square-foot cockpit easily accommodates a mounted chair and complete tackle center. The Hatteras 42 was offered with only one floor plan, a two-stateroom arrangement with the galley down and a wide-open salon. A stall shower is fitted in the double-entry head, and teak paneling and cabinets are applied throughout. It is a heavily built boat with a comfortable ride, that will cruise around 18-19 knots with GM 6-71 naturally aspirated diesels. Top speed is around 21-22 knots.
