Hatteras 56' M/Y "Marcella"
A very special yacht now offered at $399,000
A Truly Luxurious Yacht:
#000000">"Marcella" is a classic Hatteras motoryacht that has been immaculately maintained and is in impeccable condition. In addition, many upgrades and improvements have been made to Marcella as well as having been professionally decorated in luxurious style.
It is hard to find any boat at any age that has had so much done as the Marcella. This boat is a 1981 model, but looks like new. Literally every system and every component of the boat has been looked at, rebuilt, or studied and made better than the original design. Every compartment is clean with barely even dust showing.
Marcella is ready to go cruising, be a great weekend condo or a corporate yacht for entertaining. She has been kept in incredible shape and will be a great boat for the next owner. There are few, if any boats, that I’d say I would sleep in the engine or generator room. On Marcella I would. She’s just incredible and a terrific buy.

A Little History:
Marcella was bought by the current owner around 1999. Imagine having an owner with the means to do a very complete refit on an older boat and also having someone whom could handle that refit, a project manager with a perfectionist mechanical background. So the owner and his very knowledgeable mechanic/systems/maintenance project manager went through the entire boat from stem to stern and did the refit to get Marcella the way he wanted. So with the help of a detailed perfectionist, master mechanic, with an incredible eye to detail, and you can start to understand what exactly and to the extent of what was done and why well over $1M was spent.
Most everything listed below as “new”, “redone” or “rebuilt” has been done from 1999 on. Although there are detailed records on all the repairs, to go through all the records to chronologically organize each upgrade or repair with an exact date is beyond the scope of this listing. Most of the work was done in the earlier years (like engine and generator work) but the boat has not really been anywhere so the work is still fresh. Given she has been under a covered shed, even the paint work still shines.
The level of detail to perfection is great. Even details as small as removing every screw, bolt and deck fitting from the hull, deck or fly bridge before the boat was awlgripped and then replacing those fittings with new, or replacing the hardware with better hardware, or rechroming the hardware should give a prospective buyer a sense of the level of detail that the refit underwent.
Redoing a boat is one thing but maintaining it is another. The same project manager who organized the refit is still taking care of the boat (and can continue to do so) and still today, she is maintained in top order even down to suspect hose clamps that are replaced every 6 months. In short, whatever Marcella needs, Marcella gets without delay.
