PowerBoat Guide correctly notes that the 52' is "built in the Hatteras tradition of rugged, go-anywhere construction with the creature comforts of a wide-bodied luxury yacht. Built by one of America's premier yacht builders, she has the stately lines and distinct styling of a true classic in every sense of the word. Built on a modified-V hull with a relatively steep 14 degree dead rise at the transom and a long keel, she has excellent stability for island hopping or coastal cruising" and Daddy's Girl is a prime example of the breed, and the only on currently for sale on the west coast.
She's a three stateroom version with an enclosed aft deck and flybridge. Kept in fresh water for most of her life and with almost $100,000 spent on her since 2006, she's extensively updated and well equipped, Offered by a motivated two boat owner and offers are encouraged.

All wire and cable (regardless of applied voltage) is U.L. listed to 300 volts or more (often to 600 volts) to provide greater insulating protection, and all wire is tin-coated (to prevent corrosion) stranded copper (for improved flexibility) and sealed in an insulated jacket with anti-chafing protection on wires that penetrate bulkheads or stringers.
All Hatteras wiring harnesses are tie-wrapped every 6 inches and secured at least every 18 inches - even when these wires are concealed in wire trays and ducts. You'll find no loose wires just stuffed out of sight on a Hatteras. All wiring is color coded and numbered at each terminal end and well documented in the owner's manual.
Solid fiberglass bottom with PVC non-absorbent foam core in the hull sides and superstructure to deliver a high strength-to-weight ratio, "shoe box" fit of deck-to-hull joint provided by a four-part bonding process of adhesive caulking, fiberglass bonding inside, monel screws every 3 inches and a stainless-steel rub rail. All fiberglass stringer system--no structural plywood is used in Hatteras stringer--with athwartship stringers made of PVC core encapsulated in fiberglass and fiberglass ribs.
Engine beds are mounted to steel plates completely encapsulated in fiberglass stringers with anti-corrosive zinc plated bolts. Because Hatteras mounts the engines to the integrated stringer network instead of exposed corrosive I-beams, force is evenly distributed and vibration is reduced throughout the boat.
