SirenS is a 1979 53 Yacht Fisherman,
Series I. Introduced by Hatteras in 1978, she was described as
"a versatile cruiser" with a
"carefully planned marriage of cockpit convenience to motor yacht
comfort." The vessels were built on the same proven hull as the
53 Motor Yacht. There were optional floor plans available; SirenS is
the 3 stateroom/3 head floor plan. The mid stateroom was built as an
office, with a privacy door. A companionway door makes that stateroom
ensuite to the master stateroom. It could be refitted to include a
berth. SirenS has spacious and comfortable exterior spaces, is easy to
maneuver around with wide sidewalks and two helm doors, and classic
Hatteras interior spaces, with an updated galley.
The sky-blue bimini top was new in May, 2021. The teak handrails were
refinished in the Spring of 2021. SirenS made the trip from Palm Coast,
FL to Vero Beach, FL in June, 2021 and the engines and mechanicals are
In Greek mythology, the Sirens lured sailors with their enchanting music
and singing voices; they were thought to be able to charm the wind. Will
you be charmed by SirenS?

to the hull. While all Hatteras models come out of the mold with a gel
coat finish, the factory then paints the boat for a more attractive and
