Is chasing Hemingway-worthy marlin a hardcore passion for you and your friends, but you would also like to be lavished in luxury? Change Order, a 2021 Hatteras Yachts GT59 Convertible, might be the sportfisherman for you. Change Order is a tournament-ready battlewagon that is on the market just shy of $3.2 million.

“Like her siblings, the GT59 is built to suit serious anglers, with 156 square feet of dance floor where owners can mount a leaning post/rocket launcher combination stand or an offset fighting chair. Adding to her fishy nature, there’s an in-transom livewell and a tackle center in the cockpit’s forward starboard corner, under the flybridge ladder and insulated in-deck fish boxes. Teak adds a rich look not only in the cockpit, but also in the coaming boards, and air conditioning vents in the back of the mezzanine seats make watching the trolling action feel, well, ultra cool”, Yachting previously reported.

Powered with twin 1,600 hp Caterpillar C-32A diesel engines, this low-hour (600) 2021 Hatteras GT59 Convertible will quickly spool up to about 38 knots.

Change Order’s cockpit provides 156 square feet of “dance floor” with a fighting chair and mezzanine seating with cushions. The teak battle saddle with rocket launcher can hold six rods with two cup holders. It can also be covered with an oval table back at the dock for enjoying a few drinks from the refrigerated drink box located in the cockpit step by the salon door. Stow live bait in the transom livewell or frozen bait in the freezer in the mezzanine seating. Reeling in the “big one” is made easy with the transom door lift gate, and keeping it fresh is helped by icing it down thanks to the Eskimo ice machine in lazarette. There’s also an electric grill on top of the mezzanine tackle center. Other cockpit amenities are as follows:

  • Stowage in mezzanine step
  • Stowage in mezzanine step to starboard
  • 6/gaff/chamois under-gunwale holders

Change Order’s salon has a sense of elegance with satin-teak woodwork. A sliding glass door separates the salon from the cockpit, with an Amtico threshold at the entrance. Friends can relax on  the L-shaped sofa to port, which pulls out to a double berth with stowage underneath and a custom cocktail table. On the starboard side, there is a C-shaped sofa with a table. Catch the game on the 40-inch Samsung flat-screen TV to starboard with electric lift or step up to the galley to prep a meal.

Change Order’s peninsula-style galley is forward of the salon. Its central location allows owners to easily entertain their friends relaxing in the salon, catching fish from the cockpit or cheering from the flybridge. Corian countertops provide plenty of room for meal prep. There is a Miele four-burner cooktop and microwave/convection oven hidden behind a cabinet door that allows owners to cook up anything, including the catch of the day. Cold goods can be stowed in the two under-counter refrigeration units, four drawers total, and other galley accessories in stowage drawers and cabinets. It also has a durable Amtico sole.

After a long day on the water, guests can turn into one of three staterooms. The master stateroom is carpeted with a queen-sized walkaround berth and an en suite head. Stowage is available in a cedar-lined hanging closet, cabinet, stowage drawers and nightstands with drawers. Two reading lamps allow you to nose into a book before falling asleep, or catch some late-night TV on the Samsung flat-screen TV. The VIP stateroom has a queen-sized island berth with stowage underneath and an en suite head. Guests can stow their belongings in a cedar-lined hanging locker and overhead lockers to port and starboard. The third starboard-side stateroom has  over/under berths.
