New Model: Hatteras 45EX Cruising

Seen for the first time during Fort Lauderdale boat show 2014, the Hatteras 45 Express announcement in Summer of the same year brought in two important news. The good news was the return of Hatteras in the sub fifty foot size since 1998, and to that of an express model from the North Carolina renowned boat builder.  The bad was that the Hatteras 45 Express meant that Versa Ccapital announced that it stopped to build Cabo, which was the most growing and admired name in sub-fifty foot sized sportfish cruisers in recent years.  The 45EX from Hatteras is based on Cabo well received 2010 launched 44 model and will be offered in two distinct versions; Cruising as pictured above and Fishing.  The main difference of these two models is that 45EX Fishing, is sport-fisherman rigged from the factory with tower, outriggers and the rest. Interior layout is offered in two versions; standard is a single cabin, with the optional being a twin with a bunk double berth.  Power is twin 1150hp Cat engines.
