Hatteras Yachts has been an industry leader in the production of sportfishing convertibles and luxury motor yachts for 50 years, and was the very first production builder to produce a fiberglass yacht over 40 feet. Since building its first boat, Knit Wits, in 1959, Hatteras has launched more than 7600 vessels. Known for its durable hulls and luxurious interiors, Hatteras has pioneered many of the technologies used today in the marine industry including state-of-the-art hull designs, lamination techniques, and propulsion systems.
Situated on 96 acres in New Bern, North Carolina, the Hatteras production facility provides 660,000 square feet of manufacturing space. It also includes an in-house tooling facility to produce quality molds and a 62,000 square-foot lamination building capable of laminating six hulls at once. The main assembly building features 280,000 square feet of workspace. It can house up to six production lines and is equipped with deck-level workstations and overhead cranes.
Its paint facilities are equipped with the latest environmental, temperature and air-handling controls to help Hatteras craftsmen achieve a mirror-like finish. Every Hatteras also undergoes extensive testing in a Launch and Make-Ready facility, comprised of 30 protected in-water slips on the Neuse River. Here, Hatteras applies final production procedures and completes meticulous quality-assurance checks on each yacht in preparation for final delivery to its customers.
