For nearly 50 years, Hatteras Yachts has been combining world-class quality with state-of-the-art technology to create the tournament winning convertibles and luxury motoryachts that have made it a household name among weekenders and sportfishers alike. Hatteras emerged from the barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina, an area known for its fierce weather and wind-tossed waters, in 1959. It was Hatteras’ founder Willis Slane that pioneered the first fiberglass boat over 40 feet, the Knit Wits, a 41-foot sportfishing beauty that is still in service today.
Following the launch of Knit Wits, Hatteras debuted the first fiberglass motoryacht and has continued to produce an increasingly impressive fleet of sportfishing and cruising models without seeming to pause for a breath. No matter the demands of the boating enthusiast, Hatteras sets the standard for the market, offering convertibles that stretch to over 100-feet as well as a line of motoryachts ranging from 56- to 100-feet. Hatteras’ monopoly on the term ‘ruggedness’ is the result of applying a time-proven construction process, rigid safety standards and sophisticated engineering technology to its design, a combination that has earned them a reputation for dependability and excellence.
The attention to detail that is the heart and soul of Hatteras’ construction is also evident in their interior design and finish. Styled and fitted with the luxurious appointments that are demanded by today’s discerning boater, Hatteras delivers ‘an end product that is as beautiful as she is rugged”.
Hatteras’ turn-key delivery solutions allow owners to add their own personal touches with a selection of custom hull colors, teak installations, tower and electronics options as well as audio-visual systems while still offering a single delivery from the factory with the knowledge that all of the equipment has been installed to Hatteras’ detailed specifications. This is just another reason that Hatteras has one of the industry’s most loyal client bases and finds itself among the leaders for resale value in the marketplace. Whether on the waves or at the dock, Hatteras turns heads and tests the bounds of the imagination.
