FOR OVER 55 YEARS, THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE ON THE WATER.
A Hatteras Yacht does not aspire to offer a luxury. That is simply where we begin. It is beyond that point – and within the experience each voyage offers – that you begin to understand the true Hatteras difference. That difference, for over half a century, has allowed Hatteras to stand as the benchmark of quality and innovation to which all others aspire.
BUILDING A LEGEND
Two strong currents collide near Cape Hatteras: pride and perseverance. We’re a product of the storied coastal waters from which we borrow our name. Unforgiving seas where, for hundreds of years, dreams were sacrificed and legends born. So when others say we’re obsessed with over-engineering every detail, we know it is simply the right way to build a yacht. The uncompromising union of inspired design, breakthrough innovation and unmatched craftsmanship.
Our commitment began over 55 years ago when Hatteras founder, Willis Slane, envisioned a new breed of fishing boat. One strong enough to tame the waves off Cape Hatteras. What followed was the birth of a legend. Beginning with the Knit Wits, the 40-foot fiberglass yacht that revolutionized the industry, Hatteras served notice that our yachts would now be the standard to which all others were judged – above and below the waterline.
From that initial breakthrough vessel to each innovative yacht that has followed through the decades, Hatteras has offered a level of craftsmanship focused on perfecting every detail and over delivering on every expectation. When Hatteras began, some asked why our yachts were made this way. These days, they just want to know how.
There is an undaunted spirit in the Hatteras brand. You can see it in the obsessive work of the men and women who pour their talent and heart into building each legendary vessel. You can feel it in the way the Hatteras hull cuts confidently through waters that lesser boats dare not enter. But more than anything, you can witness it inside the ambitious souls who make Hatteras an expression of their own drive for adventure. Those who are unwilling to compromise and determined to push boundaries. So, for all those who celebrate a life without limits, we welcome you aboard.
INNOVATION BEYOND IMAGINATION
For more than 55 years, Hatteras has set the standard to which all other yachts aspire. That began with producing the world’s first fiberglass yacht over 40 feet and pioneering the revolutionary convex and modified-V hull. And while decades of design and engineering have resulted in a long list of patents and accolades, our focus continues to be on everything yet to come.
From hull and propulsion breakthroughs to on-board connectivity and interior design, a commitment to innovation fuels every aspect of our business. And in the process, we’re creating a legacy for others to chase and an unmatched experience for a fortunate few to enjoy.

DESIGN. BUILD. AND BEYOND.
Exceed every expectation. It’s a blueprint that guides the engineering and construction of our legendary yachts. It’s a philosophy that extends to the experience you will discover from our very first consultation. And it’s a commitment that ensures every moment aboard a Hatteras reflects your personal vision and pursuit of a life without limits.
BE A PART OF THE DESIGN TEAM
Unlike many yacht builders, Hatteras invites all owners to be an integral part of the design-build phase. That process includes an initial consultation at our headquarters in North Carolina to outline your wish list, including technology integration, layout of staterooms, custom amenities and lighting. You will be assigned a team, led by a dedicated Construction Manager, to guide you through every step of the planning and construction processes.
YOUR VISION REALIZED
A dedicated Hatteras designer will work with you to develop an interior plan that fully realizes your vision and reflects the way you intend to use your yacht. That process begins with selecting major items, like cabinetry, appliances and tile. Options then extend to furniture, upholstery and bedding. Details such as shower design, hardware, fixtures and wall coverings are all available as fully-custom solutions. And should your wish list extend outside our conventional offerings, we can work to source non-traditional and exotic options to ensure your experience lives up to your standard – and ours.
A GREATER COMMITMENT
Our relationship with our customers doesn’t end when the keys are handed over. In fact, it’s only the beginning. A multi-day orientation session is offered with each purchase, including the ability to have members of the Hatteras team join you for portions of your maiden voyage. And in the days, weeks and years that follow, you’ll have the added peace of mind of direct access to your Hatteras team whenever you need assistance. That commitment is also backed by an industry-leading 2-Year Warranty on all systems and a 10-Year Structural Warranty.
