Hatteras Sportfish Beached in Pensacola Beach

A twenty meter Hatteras sportfish yacht titled m/y Robin Lynn ended up beached in Pensacola Pass Beach, South of Florida on the morning of Tuesday 26 September.  According to unconfirmed speculative reports the captain slept under command during the trip, which ended with the sportfish beached in Pensacola.  The twenty meter sportfish yacht was towed away on the same evening by United States Coast Guard and taken to a yard.  A picture taken of the sportfish yacht after hauling out showed next to nothing visible damage, which indicates she was cruising at slow speeds during the grounding.
The sportfish yacht in this grounding is a Hatteras 65 Convertible Series II with the Enclosed Bridge option from 2001.  Produced from 2000 to 05 the Hatteras 65 Convertible is designed by Jack Hargrave and was offered in three of four double cabin layouts, powered by twin Detroits 1350hp or Cats 1400hp for speeds up to 35 knots. The 65 Convertible was replaced by the Hatteras 68 Convertible in 2005 which followed more modern looks as introduced by the second generation 54 Convertible.
