The 86' Convertible is an excellent yacht capable of being used as a motor yacht yet stands ready for use as a convertible. Although large, she is agile and can compete in top level tournaments and her massive, four cabin interior and exterior accommodations are second to none. 

She bears the Hatteras pedigree and will get you to your favorite fishing or cruising destinations in grand comfort with an impressive range; a leisurely 10 knots has a reported range of 1700 nautical miles and at her cruising speed of 20 knots she has a reported range of 700 nautical miles.


WILD CHILD is an all fiberglass custom 86-foot sportfisherman, designed and built by the Hatteras Yacht Corporation of New Bern, North Carolina. She is in immaculate condition. For the fishing enthusiast, she offers three aft decks for fishing: one on the sky lounge deck just aft of the wheelhouse; the second is on the mezzanine deck aft of the Salon which is covered by an extended aluminum-framed Bimini top; and the third is in a spacious cockpit where the custom fighting chair can be located. The interior is finished in beautiful high gloss cherrywood paneling and cabinetry with custom inlays in the salon and guest areas. She has carpeted soles throughout with finished parquet floor in the wheelhouse, and finished cherry floors in the galley and dinette area.


She has granite countertops in the galley, salon, and dining area with marble countertops and floors in the guest heads. Her electronics and machinery are of top quality, serviced and in great working order. The 1800 HP DDEC 16V2000 engines provide an effortless and efficient cruising speed of 20 knots.
