Jim Wallace at IYC recently facilitated the donation of "Any Excuse" a Hatteras 52' Sport Deck Motor Yacht.

Any Excuse 52' 1998 Hatteras Sport Deck Motor Yacht

Any excuse is in great condition. Her fiberglass hull is in great shape. Twin Diesel Caterpillar 3408 with 800 hp each and a sound insulated 20KW Onan genset provide ample power to cruise at 20 knots, run her Cursair A/C, multiple electronics, pumps, stabilizer system and charge 4 battery banks. Any Excuse has capacity for nearly 1000 gallons of diesel and 200 gallons of fresh water.

Material improvements will include factory recommended service to main engines and generator, work on the running gear including replacing the cutlass bearing and having the shafts and propellers trued. She will also receive renewed bottom coating. "Any Excuse" will be available for lease soon. For more information contact Jim Wallace.
