“Trinket” is a 1979 43’ Hatteras Convertible that was delivered in the Spring of 1980 and has had a single owner who has enthusiastically exhibited pride of ownership and extraordinary care of the vessel. Her “Bristol” condition is the result of regular maintenance and updating. This Hatteras is better than new. Trinket is immaculate from the top of the bridge to the spotless engines and engine room bilge.

This two stateroom Hatteras has a forward v-berth stateroom for guests and starboard side by side berths for the owner. The “main” large head has a stand alone shower. The full function galley is located on the port side and down three steps from the salon which is amidships. Crusair twin zone reverse cycle HVAC runs throughout the vessel. A large cockpit and fly bridge are enhanced by the almost 15’ beam and provide excellent outdoor space for all aboard.

Master Stateroom
The master stateroom located forward and starboard has side by side berths, under berth storage, nightstand w/drawers, carpeting, draperies, hanging locker, full length mirror, berth lights, duplex electrical outlet, port light and opening hatch with screen. The private entry head has a separate stall shower, electric toilet, vanity sink, linen locker and retractable clothesline. (See “Head” below for greater detail.)

Located in the bow, the guest stateroom has a v-berth, hanging locker, below berth dresser drawers and padded bulkheads. This stateroom also has its own private lavatory and stainless steel sink.

Master Head
The head is located forward and starboard. Guest entry is gained from the forward companion way while a private entry is provided for the owners. The large head is bright and airy with vinyl flooring, vinyl wall covering and headlining, medicine cabinet with mirror, separate stall shower with glass door, electric toilet, vanity sink, linen locker and retractable clothesline.

Very tastefully decorated in soft colors, the large deckhouse/salon is amidships and has a luxurious, comfortable and airy feel. The deckhouse/salon has tinted glass, a windshield for added light and openness, teak paneled bulkheads, engine access hatch, sliding starboard and port side windows, large sofa, twin chairs, entertainment center with AM/FM Stereo receiver, carpet, draperies, 120 volt duplex electric outlets, and bar with ice maker.

The galley is located on the port side opposite the Master stateroom. Galley equipment includes a full size Maytag Refrigerator w/Freezer, Princess three burner electric stove with oven and rotisserie, exhaust fan w/hood, stainless steel sink, Formica counters, dish and storage lockers, glass rack, duplex electric outlets, 12 and 120 volt light fixtures, port light and opening hatch w/screen, plus ample storage.
