    I have been the owners personal Captain since he purchased this vessel. He has asked that I help him sell what we think is the nicest 56 Hatteras around.

    Williing to look at quality smaller trades along the lines of a downeast cruiser or Tiara Open (Diesel Power).

    Let me add that Nightingale was one of our top two choices, after searching the country, when we bought Valhalla. That was before all the work they had done on her. With most of these old Hatts that are currently on the market, a buyer can expect to put a lot of money into bringing them up to snuff (including blister work) and they're worth it. Nightingale's had the work done. Nice boat. I'd put her high on my list to check out if I were looking today.

    Good luck selling her.
