The 58’ LRC’s are as unique now as they were the day they were built. She is a very heavily built, Hatteras production trawler, capable of being transatlantic on its own bottom. This could be accomplished with the fuel in her tanks. Very few power boats under 60’ can make that claim. This is a massive boat with a bow that is over 9’ above the water and weighing over 90,000#’s and equipped with bow thruster and roll stabilizers normally found on larger boats of her day. Though you may never need a boat built for crossing Oceans, the comfort of knowing, it is built to handle the demands of a crossing is comforting. Dream On’s current owner has taken great care to maintain the original ambiance of the boat. By keeping the original wood interior and accenting the beautiful teak throughout the vessel inside and out. He has gone to great expense to enhance the traditional look and feel of this boat all while upgrading; the interior, exterior, teak wood, canvas, and mechanical systems throughout the boat. Each and every choice has been made to maintain or enhance the original tradition feel that Jack Hargrave designed into these Beautiful yachts
I have been a professional Captain for over 35 years and have worked on and delivered everything from 130’ Feadships to 72’ Sailboats and I can say as long as you understand your speed constraints, the 58’ Hatteras LRC’s are my favorite boat for under a million Dollars. I have personally spent hundreds of days and nights on this boat and have traveled thousands of miles without major incidents

From the full width swim platform, you take a step up to enter the cockpit slightly off center to the Starboard side. The cockpit combing is padded to protect your knees when and if you use any of the 7 rod holder or outriggers while fishing. Overhead in the cockpit is a canvas sunshade (new 2017). On the Starboard forward side of the cockpit are built-in teak steps that lead you to the aft deck. Here you will find a hardtop and two wing doors that lead to port and starboard. Weather decks forward. There is a Teak table on the aft deck that can sit four or with the self-contained leaf in the table deployed it can easily seat 6 or more. Advancing forward of the aft deck you enter the Salon centerline through a teak and glass door. The salon and wheel house doors are also equipped with teak screen doors as well. New carpet throughout the boat (2017) To starboard is a L-shaped built-in couch with all new cushions and Sunbrella upholstery (2017).

To the Port side is a private staircase leading to the full width Master stateroom with a center line queen bed, two large port-lights to the aft cockpit on each side of the bed. On the port side is a bank of drawers built into the wall that run the entire length of the room. Forward of that is a small wet locker and a closet for hanging clothes. On the Starboard side of the bed is a vanity with a mirror flanked by a full sized bi-fold door closet. On the forward starboard side of the stateroom is a very nice head with a full-size toilet, bathtub with a shower along with a sink and mirror. Back up the curved stair case to the salon you move forward to the breakfast/lunch bar with two rattan stools and overhead cabinets and china cabinet on the end of the counter. Across from the counter on the Starboard side is an ice marker, and cabinet used as a pantry. Forward of that on the starboard side is a counter with coffee maker. Underneath the counter is a beverage cooler and a trash compactor. There is an inverter wired in that will run the refrigerator for up to 12 hours off the batteries. To port is the Galley with a dishwasher (2012), a full size double door refrigerator, glass cooktop with two burners and a grill. Above the stove is a Combination Convection, broiler microwave. A porcelain double sink is under the port side window. You then pass through a door headed forward on the starboard cabin side to the wheel house. On the aft wall of the wheel house is a long bench that sits over the chart and safety equipment. The bench can be converted into a bunk if needed. Several electrical panels are located on the back wall of the wheel house. Looking forward there is a wraparound windshield with wipers. The teak wheelhouse doors to both port and starboard are on rollers. Right inside the starboard side door is ladder going up to the upper helm and deck to stern and forward of that same place is a spiral staircase that leads you down to the other staterooms and engine room. Once you go down the forward steps you enter a centerline short hallway. To your right or forward through a door is a private stateroom in the bow. The stateroom has v-berths with stowage underneath. There is a hanging locker, private head with sink and shower stall. On toward bulkhead are cabinet and lockers for additional storage and access to the anchor locker. Back in the hallway you have access to a full head with a separate shower stall that is shared with the VIP stateroom, which runs from centerline to the port side. This guest quarters has two twin berths separated by a chest of drawers with a large mirror on the wall. There is also a hanging locker and access to the shared day head. Once again entering the hall where there is an open passage to the Starboard side of the boat. Located on the forward bulkhead in this area is a linen closet and another storage closet. Headed aft is a raised single crew bunk with six drawers underneath. Aft of the bunk prior to entering the engine room is an apartment style stackable washer and dryer.
Once you open the heavy door entering into the stand-up engine room you come to realize exactly how massive these 58’ LRC’s are. There are two Detroit 4-71’s flanked on each side by two separate generators. The room contains the majority of all the mechanical systems that are used to operate the vessel including the compressors for the 5 separate A/C units that serve the boat. This room is equipped with an automatic CO2 system that was just Hydro tested and inspected (2018). Back up on the main deck there is a Portuguese Bridge in front of the Pilothouse to help displace any wave that may come over the bow. The Stainless anchor rides in the bow pulpit connected to an all chain rode. There is an additional Hawse pipe in the foredeck where an addition rope anchor line is available. Headed aft are two wide weather decks port and starboard, both being covered from the pilothouse aft to the wing doors. On the top deck forward is the helm with a Pompanette helm chair and two folding teak deck chairs. This area is covered by one of two large Bimini tops (2017) located on the upper deck. There are two long bench seats with cushioned seats and backs (2017) with a large custom teak HI/LO table (2017) permanently mounted between them. All this area is enclosed by a privacy wind screen made of Blue Sunbrella (2017). Aft of this section is a dinghy davit that was serviced and reworked (2017) and a cradle for a 13’ tender. Eighty percent of the upper deck was reworked and recovered over the winter of 2016. The decks have all been painted with Quantum paint and soft nonskid was used throughout the boat. The hull was coated in a 3M Yacht white 1005 wrap with 24Mil Helicopter protective tape in high impact areas. The boot and cove stripe were repainted with Awlcraft 2000 in 2016. Many items have been added to this boat to keep in line with the classic vision Jack Hargrave had when he originally designed the boat. A few being but not limited to stripping the paint off the wheelhouse doors to reveal the beautiful teak doors that they are. Removed and replaced the painted plywood doors on the flybridge with custom built teak doors that match the other doors on board. Had all four of the weather deck overhead Stanchions, which were made of glassed over plywood, removed and replaced with solid teak wood stanchions. The current owner appreciated this boat for what she and that is a 40-year-old classic yacht. Instead of ripping out the interior heart that gave these boats the warmth and charm of an all wood interior and making her something she was never meant to be he has allowed it to age respectfully and upgrading to like kind or better wood along the way. So, if you are looking for a modern glass, Granit and wall paper interior this boat most likely isn’t for you. However, if you want to enjoy days on the water on a solid fiberglass hulled Yacht with an interior that surrounds you by the traditional woods used for centuries during simpler times, then “Dream On” needs to be on the top of your list.
