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 functioned properly.

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?

CONSTRUCTION - INFORMATION PROVIDED BY BUILDER

The Hatteras 53' Yacht Fisherman is constructed of molded polyester resin with woven E-type fiberglass cloth. The boat has a solid fiberglass bottom and deep keel; hull sides are of a sandwiched construction cored with balsa, as are the decks. The four full length stringers are fiberglass over a foam core glassed to the hull. Engine beds are 5" aluminum channel bolted to the stringers. The hull to deck joint is a "shoe box" style which is chemically and mechanically fastened. There are three watertight, marine plywood bulkheads glassed 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 durable finish.
