TUFF LIFE IV is The second-to-last Hatteras 74 Sport Deck Motor Yachts built before the transition to the 75. She has been extensively upgraded on the exterior and interior. A custom hardtop was added while a complete exterior paint job was being performed, including the replacement of portlights and hatches with polished stainless steel units and the addition of an extended swim platform. This 74 has a 5-stateroom layout with new hard flooring and upgraded wall coverings. The original dinette to starboard has been changed to create a full-beam galley with additional storage and refrigeration contained in matched cabinetry. TUFF LIFE IV is very easy to run short-handed and is capable of high cruise speeds in the low 20s or efficiently cruised at just over 11 knots burning around 20 gallons per hour, total, thanks to her Caterpillar 3412s, while towing a very large tender.
