\A wide staircase leads to the staterooms below and offers access to a large storage locker for supplemental supplies. Concealed under the staircase lie a side-by-side washer and dryer, which are accessible from the lower companionway. Owners enjoy a full-beam master suite featuring a king-sized berth, walk-in closet lined in cedar, dressers and nightstands to port and starboard, and an entertainment center featuring a 27-inch flat-screen TV. A specified sitting area provides room to relax, while six oversized port lights allow ambient light to fill the cabin. Various options let the owner outfit the master with an office or additional hanging lockers. The private head features stone flooring and countertops, along with dual sinks. An optional his-and-hers head with centerline shower and/or tub is also available.
Similar to other Hatteras models, the bow stateroom on the 72 features a walk-around queen berth with cedar-lined storage below. An optional 20-inch flat-screen TV is available for entertainment. Storage is abundant, with a cedar-lined hanging locker and hull-side cabinets to port and starboard. The athwartships guest stateroom also features a walk-around queen berth and cedar-lined storage. Nightstands on either side provide storage, as does a full cedar-lined hanging locker. An optional portlight adds ambient light. Situated to starboard, the optional fourth stateroom offers over/under bunks as well as a closet and nightstand (this is in lieu of the lounge area in the master suite).
The 174-square-foot flybridge, accessed from either the aft deck or the galley, features a centerline helm served by two adjustable Pompanette chairs. (For those who want more seating forward, a third chair fits nicely as an option.) The standard electronics suite includes a GPS/chartplotter, VHF radio, autopilot, and depth and temperature indicator - all the necessary navigation aids. A bar with three stools, a refrigerator, and an icemaker abaft the helm creates a casual entertainment area, and an optional electric grill is available in the starboard cabinet. Molded fiberglass seating farther aft allows for easy conversation and includes cavernous storage beneath. The standard open bridge features an arch for mounting antennas and radar. Owners can elect to add a fully integrated hardtop, along with curtains and air conditioning.
To port and starboard, 12-inch side decks lead safely forward, making the 72 easier to handle by an owner-operator. Cleats are recessed into the bulwark for a clean exterior profile. Forward, a large sun pad that converts into a seat is molded into the main deck. And thanks to a windlass that is recessed into a well that drains overboard, the foredeck will stay clean throughout the day.
