The History of AFterwards
AFterwards is a 1987 Hatteras cockpit motor yacht, built in New Bern, South Carolina, with her fiberglass keel laid in late 1986 and fully outfitted/splashed in April of 1987. She has three staterooms/three heads and is the galley down configuration, meaning the helm, salon and dining area/bar are on the main level and the galley is four steps down while the staterooms and engine rooms are four steps down from that. The generator room is actually under the galley and accessed via a hatch and stairs in the galley sole (floor).
She is 63' long (66' with the swim platform, but don't tell anyone - marinas charge by the foot), 18'2" wide and 5'2" below the waterline. Her air draft is 25' and she has two bridges, a main helm station and a flying bridge that is an amazing place from which to steer and watch the sights. It also houses the BBQ and the beerator.
She is a hefty lady, weighing in at 117,000 pounds wet (full of all fluids and passengers/crew - she carries 1300 gallons of diesel, 320 gallons of fresh water and 230 gallons of black water) and is powered by two Detroit Diesel 12 cylinder engines putting out 675 horses each through two turbochargers per engine. She is fully stabilized (2 X 7sq ft stabilizer fins) and has a bow thruster to help with close maneuvering. While she could cruise at 16 knots she normally travels at a much more stately 10.
She is in essence a little city with two generators putting out a total of 27KW, a water maker capable of 1400 gallons /day of fresh water from sea water, and numerous communications systems (yes we have a ham radio license). She has both water and land tenders (a 14' Novurania dinghy with a 60 horse Yamaha outboard and a 250cc Honda Scooter) that are unloaded via the 1500# davit (crane). She has a six person life raft and a fully equipped ditch bag with EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon).
The personal accommodations are great, e.g., tempurpedic mattress, galley with an induction cooktop, microwave/convection oven, dishwasher, disposal, etc. She sleeps six comfortably but we can add places under the stars that are spectacular. Come see us and enjoy her as we do.
