This Hatteras 82 was ordered originally by a United States billionaire. The client's vision focused on building a vessel capable of cruising to grounds other convertibles of this era were simply unable to reach. To that end, the original build client requested redundant systems to ensure the boat was ready for his family's enjoyment. Noteworthy items include two Northern Lights 50 KW Generators, two Watermakers, two hot water heaters, two power steering pumps, two fresh water pumps, two AC cooling pumps, plus two air compressors. "JERE LYNN IV" met expectations and the original owner campaigned this vessel with family and crew throughout much of The Western Hemisphere.
This yacht exchanged ownership for the first time to another United States billionaire who primarily enjoyed the use of the vessel in Florida and Bahamian waters. The second owner had the same full time Captain and full time Engineer on board "TAMARA K" throughout his tenure as owner. Noteworthy improvements included removing her original her original aluminum window frames and reinstalling frameless windows in 2014. Exterior repaint in Awlgrip by Luu Marine in 2014. Plus, the Starboard Engine and Transmission were overhauled and completely rebuilt in 2014.
The current owner puchased this Hatteras in 2015. In 2015, the mission was to transform the boat into a luxury dive platform capable of remaining offshore for extended periods of time. A change in plans caused the owner to shift gears and instead, the owner concentrated on a major refit. This refit was through and focused on preparing this Hatteras for sale.
