Project: Hatteras Chub Cay 77

Since the buy out by White River Marine Group of Johnny Morris in May 2021, Hatteras has been rather flat, with the company not presenting any new models and major moves for over two years, with it's latest model being the 105 Raised Pilothouse which debuted in that year.  Finally though at the Miami 2024 boat show, Hatteras finally announced not one but three new projects from 48 to 77 feet set to debut in the coming two years.  This Chub Cay 77 is the largest of these upcoming projects from Hatteras with the other two being an outboard powered cabin walk-around and a twenty meter sportfish yacht.  The Chub Cay 77 is the one which was provided with the most details of the three projects, with Hatteras advising for a four double cabins layout with a full beam midships located owners stateroom.  The rendering of the Chub Cay 77 shows a sportfish yacht immersed more then ever in Carolina sportfishing roots from the dramatic curved reverse shear line to an importantly flared bow.  Engine and performance information has not been announced with launching of the first unit planned for 2026.

Improve-it = Hatteras GT70

Hatteras give us a preview rendering of the Enclosed-Bridge GT70 Convertible presented at the 2020 Miami Yacht Show as this article is going online.  This is another take on the already legendary Hatteras GT70 with the enclosed bridge offering apart a protected central helm, an L-shaped dinette to starboard, wetbar to port, and a view mezzanine settee outside, and mini docking station. The GT70 offers a five stateroom four head lower deck arrangement.  Power comes from twin Cats 1825hp which offer a cruise range between mid thirties and up to forty knots of top end speed.  The Hatteras GT70 modified Vee hull shape offers stable speed that cuts through any wave.

New Model: Hatteras GT65 Carolina

With the new GT65 Carolina, Hatteras signals a new design direction, enhanced performance, and custom features for clients seeking an alternative to either a custom builder or other competitors ordinary off-the-shelf boats. The GT65's sleek profile refreshes the look of the GT Series while still maintaining its core Hatteras DNA. Its new flybridge arrangement features an ergonomically-designed console that puts all the controls within easy reach.  The GT65 Carolina’s added volume is evident in its large cockpit, which is designed for ultimate fish-ability. The mezzanine incorporates optional integrated seat back air conditioning for all-day comfort and large stainless steel built-in storage boxes.  The Hatteras GT65 Carolina offers a four-stateroom, three-head interior layout maximizing the boat’s additional volume in both living and storage space. The ensuite master stateroom is the largest in its class, but guests billeted in the forward VIP will not feel slighted in the least. Two big bunk rooms allow owners to bring along a big team of anglers and crew.  But the GT65 Carolina’s key advantage over the competition lies in its new hull and tunnel design. Utilizing high-tech Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis, Hatteras’ team of engineers optimized hull form to ensure superior performance, handling and seaworthiness. In addition, the hull and stringer system are infused as a single part, an industry first, to reduce weight and increase strength. The GT65 Carolina incorporates an all-new layout of the engine room for ease of maintenance and serviceability. For owners seeking additional comfort, there is also an optional twin Seakeeper 9 installation, without compromising fuel capacity.

Improve-it = Hatteras 100RPH

In July 2019 Hatteras delivered the fifth and last of the 100RPH series.  The fifth hull was named M/Y Optimus and is the most customized build of this semi custom thirty meter super yacht.  The most apparent of the customization are the hull extension of over two meters for an extra aft cockpit lowered deck usable also for fishing, and the electric blue custom paint for the flybridge top, radar arch, and side supports.  The Hatteras 100RPH comes from a collaboration with Italian designer Enrico Gobbi, and featured interior choices for five or four double cabins.  Power for the 100RPH is from standard twin Cats 1900hp or optional MTU 2600hp engines.  The 100 is to be replaced by the 105RPH of which the first hull is currently under construction.

Project: Hatteras GT65 Carolina

Hatteras Yachts just released details about an all-new Hatteras GT65 Carolina project. This project is the newest addition to its proven GT Series tournament-ready sportfishing boats, which includes the GT70, GT63, GT59, GT54 and GT45X. The GT65 Carolina will replace the GT63 and signals a new design direction, enhanced performance and custom features for clients seeking an alternative to either a custom builder or other competitors for off-the-shelf production sport fishing yachts. The new GT65 Carolina is scheduled to debut in Fall 2019. The first renderings of the GT65 Carolina reveal a sleek profile that refreshes the look of the GT Series while still maintaining the core Hatteras DNA. Its new flybridge arrangement features an ergonomically designed console that puts all the controls within easy reach. It also incorporates the latest and largest navigation and fish-finding electronics in a non-glare, flush-mounted, “glass cockpit” helm array. The GT65 Carolina’s added volume is evident in its class-leading eighteen square meters cockpit, which is designed for ultimate fish-ability. The mezzanine incorporates optional integrated seat back air conditioning for all-day comfort, and large stainless steel built-in storage boxes. Below deck GT65 Carolina will have a four-stateroom, three-head interior layout maximizing the boat’s additional volume in both living and storage space. The ensuite master stateroom is the largest in its class, but guests billeted in the forward VIP will not feel slighted in the least. Two big bunk rooms allow owners to bring along a big team of anglers and crew.  But the GT65 Carolina’s key advantage over the competition lies in its new hull and tunnel design. Utilizing high-tech Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis, Hatteras team of engineers optimized hull form to ensure superior performance, handling and seaworthiness. In addition, the hull and stringer system will be infused as a single part, an industry first, to reduce weight and increase strength. The GT65 Carolina incorporates an all-new layout of the engine room for ease of maintenance and serviceability. For owners seeking additional comfort, there is also an optional twin Seakeeper 9 installation, without compromising fuel capacity. Hatteras Yachts is building the first GT65 Carolina, due in Fall 2019, for tournament-winning sportfishing couple Chris and Laura Jessen, owners of Fish Tank Sportfishing. The Jessens have had tremendous success campaigning their Hatteras GT63 Fish Tank since 2012. Chris and Laura, along with Fish Tank’s award-winning captain, Ben Horning, are collaborating with Hatteras on the new Fish Tank, and the builder has given them the opportunity to customize it to meet their competitive needs. The result is the GT65 Carolina, a tournament-ready sportfishing boat that embodies the best boat building traditions of the brand and state that spawned it, along with features forged by the Jessens’ years of tournament-angling experience. Additional features available on the GT65 Carolina include: sealed cockpit and additional fuel in lieu of fish boxes, hull side vents with Delta -T system, premium finish throughout engine room, single-level controls with bow thrusters incorporated, tackle room in lieu of fourth stateroom. The first GT65 Carolina, Fish Tank owned by Chris and Laura Jessen, also will incorporate custom features such as: tower with carbon fiber hardtop and buggy top, tuna tubes, and a custom wood interior. Standard engines for the Hatteras GT65 Carolina will be twin Cats 1600hp, and or optional 1800hp units.

Hatteras New Web Site

World famous yacht builder Hatteras presents its new virtual World wide web showroom. North Carolina's Hatteras was founded in 1959 by Willis Slane, and in March of the following year launched its first model a 41 foot twin cabin sportfish christened Knit Wits designed by Jack Hargrave. It broke tradition at the time for being the first boat produced with fiberglass in this size. Testimony to the quality of Hatteras and the good choice of fiberglass the Knit Wits is as today at a near to fifty years still in service, and was recently refitted to mark a showing in the 2013 Fort Lauderdale boat show. Two years after the launch of Knit Wits, Hatteras followed it with a second model the 41 Double Cabin, this time of a motor cruiser style. In 1967 Hatteras due to increasing demand for its boats added a second factory along the one in High Point, in the coastal town of New Bern also in North Carolina, this in 1997 replacing totally the original premises. Innovation was always part of Hatteras DNA not only in the beginning but during all its current story introducing a number of firsts like the quick-disconnect device in 1980, first production builder to use five bladed propellers in 1985, using integrated propeller tunnels in fifty feet plus yachts, and the convex hull as introduced on the 54 Convertible in 2002. After Slane Hatteras featured various owners over its story which included AMF, Genmar, and Brunswick in 2001.  Last year 2013 in Summer, Brunswick sold to Versa Capital Management. The current line up from North Carolina's most famous boat builder offers eleven models in three ranges: Motor Yachts, Convertibles, and Express.  The entry level model is the 45 Express introduced in the fall of 2014, flagship is the Summer 2013 launched 100 Raised Pilothouse, while the latest new model is the 70 Motor Yacht.  The new Hatteras web site takes you around with the following buttons: Models, Experience, Request, Our Story, and Find a Dealer.  Hatteras also features its social hubs; Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Pinterest with button links located at the bottom of the page.

New Model: Hatteras 70 Motor Yacht

It's really coming full circle at the moment for Hatteras in the last two years, with new models proving to be a success after another.  The motor yacht series is the one that most benefited since Versa Capital took over Hatteras in 2013, with three new models being presented in a space of couple years.  Designed as the 100 and the upcoming 90 by Enrico Gobbi of T4 Design Italy the 70 Motor Yacht fits perfectly in the Hatteras puzzle, filling the gap perfectly in between models. The 70 Motor Yacht features a four double cabins lower deck, with a crew cabin and lobby aft. The main deck is offered with two arrangements one reflecting a more American open area, and the other offering a more conservative Mediterranean Europe approach.

Project: Hatteras 90 Motor Yacht

Hatteras President John W. S. Ward announced a brand new model during a press conference at the 2015 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show: the 90 Motor Yacht. This stylish, contemporary yacht is designed to be consistent with the other models in the builder’s Motor Yacht line, including the Hatteras 100 Raised Pilothouse and the 70 Motor Yacht. The 90 Motor Yacht has a flush main deck with a flexible interior arrangement. The layout places the galley forward along with a casual seating and dining area, while the formal dining table and salon lie aft. An optional arrangement moves the galley to amidships and the dining table aft, creating a unique salon forward that benefits from the extra privacy afforded by this location.The main deck windows are large and frame-less, maximizing views of the water around the yacht. The Hatteras design team also created optional fold-out balconies for the main deck that are incorporated into the bulwarks, offering guests a further connection between vessel and sea.  The lower-deck guest area has four staterooms, all with en suite heads, accommodating eight guests in comfort and privacy. The crew quarters, aft of the engine room, can be accessed from the yacht’s transom and also from a discrete door on the aft deck. Outdoor entertaining is maximized on the 90 Motor Yacht, which has a large aft deck settee and dining table. The foredeck also holds a settee, cocktail table and a large sun pad; an optional layout includes fore and aft-facing benches served by a table. When it comes to entertaining guests, the expansive flybridge on the 90 Motor Yacht also is sure to be a popular spot. In addition to the fully equipped helm station, which is shaded by a hardtop on the Open version, the flybridge holds a dining table for eight, a long settee and a bar.  The new 90 Motor Yacht is scheduled to debut at the 2017 Miami boat show.

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.

New Model: Hatteras GT70

Since Versa Capital became the owners of Hatteras in Summer 2013 there was a lot of questions asked about the future of the legendary North Carolina boat builder. The new GT70 is a positive reply that that the current management wants to see Hatteras move only in one direction; forward. The GT70 follows the recent years introduced GT models, with custom design ques in the exterior looks department being an important element.  This GT70 also takes the mantle of the flagship of the Hatteras GT series which today features a total of four models; 54, 60 and 63.  Accommodation wise the GT70 is a sport-fishing machine with a luxurious accommodation, and performance to match even fully custom builds.  The interior accommodation will feature five double cabins below served with four shower heads. Owners stateroom is located at midships but is not full beam, and will be looking into the starboard side of the hull.  Two further double cabins will be located further to midships and will feature bunk berths, giving the idea of being used as crew rooms. Power options will be standard 1900hp Cat engines, or optional 2600hp MTU units.

Project: Hatteras 45 Express

This project announcement from Hatteras came as a big surprise to me and brand fans alike. Hatteras has not gone sub fifty feet for quite some time, and its last model produced shorter to this size was the 43 Convertible Series II which ended production in March 1998. The Hatteras 45 Express will change this, and sees the legendary Carolina brand return sub fifty after sixteen years, with an express which outside seems to be based a lot on the Cabo 44 to what regards the looks.  The interior has a different layout and will be available with two options; single or two cabin layouts. The single cabin version features a large double size C-shaped settee.  Outside Hatteras is also offering two options; fully tournament sportfish rigged with tower, as will be hull one, or a more cruiser friendly version.  Hatteras also announced that they are already working on a 52 Express. The Hatteras 45 Express will launch and be presented in end October during the Fort Lauderdale boat show.
