EVENTS

Hatteras Cup Update


The first-ever Hatteras Cup fishing tournament, which kicked off on June 1st, already has 44 teams and more than 160 anglers registered just two months after getting underway. The Hatteras Cup gives Hatteras owners and teams the chance to try for a share of a $115,000 purse by competing in seven different categories—Blue Marlin, Catch & Release, Dolphin, Grouper, Snapper, Tuna, and Wahoo. There’s still plenty of time to get in the game before the contest ends on January 31st. What's more, if you register for The Hatteras Cup and catch an IGFA World Record-breaking Atlantic Blue Marlin on a Hatteras in a sanctioned tournament before the end of this year, you might just have a million dollars on the line.

The Hatteras Advantage: Onboard Electrical Systems


While Hatteras Yachts’ legendary ride, performance, comfort, and fishability get the lion’s share of attention, the equipment we manufacture for each of our boats also is purpose-built to deliver an exceptional experience. Take the electrical wiring systems and panels that keep your Hatteras lighted, running and safe. Our veteran technicians build them all by hand in-house to ensure your boat always has the electrical power you need when you need it.

INNOVATION

The Hatteras Advantage: Superior Hull Construction


You want to be out where the fish are biting, even when it’s too rough for the other boats to leave the dock. That’s why every Hatteras hull is designed and built to give you a smooth, stable ride in turbulent offshore conditions.

INNOVATION

The Hatteras Advantage: The Engine Room


When Hatteras owners take guests on a tour of their yacht, they often save the best part for last − the engine room. Every machinery space, from the 45 Express to the cavernous engine room on the 100 Raised Pilothouse Motor Yacht, is Intelligently designed, well-equipped, and surgically clean, showcasing the best of Hatteras engineering, design and construction technology.

OWNER STORIES

INNOVATION

The Hatteras Advantage: Noise Suppression


The Hatteras in-house design and engineering team has made noise suppression a priority for decades.

HISTORY

Driving the Knit Wits


Unmistakable—thanks to her jaunty flybridge, white paint and teal trim, the 41-foot Knit Wits, the first Hatteras ever built, pulled up to the dock at Pier 66 Marina in Fort Lauderdale where we waited to board her. Thanks to a full restoration by the Hatteras factory team in 2013, she looked just as fresh and feisty as the day she launched in 1960—55 years ago.
