Project: Hatteras GT70

Seems the just past Fort Lauderdale boat show was big news for Sportfish yachts passionate's, with two of the legendary brands announcing important new projects. Since stopping the production of the 68 in the Convertible line in 2012, there was a big model hole which spanned fourteen feet in the Hatteras sportfish series. This project Hatteras GT70 seems to be the answer to this hole, and a continuation of the expansion of the very nice looking GT series which so far features three models; 54, 60, and 63.  The GT70 will offer four layout interior plan choices; all of which offer four double guest cabins and three heads, plus one crew cabin berth with a private shower head.  The owners stateroom is located in the middle of the lower deck to starboard with the double berth looking to the ship side.  The main deck has two choices with the main difference here is for having an internal staircase for the flybridge. Below the option revolves around the midships located fourth cabin which in the optional choice is larger and offers a french berth plus a bunk, versus the two bunks of the standard layout.  Power and performance has not been mentioned, but if the other GT series can be prove of anything we can think around a 40 knots top end speed.
