Introducing the GT45X Open: Your Next Adventure Starts Here

It’s a perfect platform for a wide range of on-water activities from serious angling to family boating adventures and watersports fun. The new Hatteras GT45X Open joins the GT45X Hardtop, GT45X Tower, and GT45X Flybridge, rounding out the GT45X Express series.

“The GT45X series design, with its array of options, is flexible enough to appeal to the weekend cruiser, the occasional angler or the elite tournament competitor,” said Hatteras Yachts President and CEO Kelly Grindle, adding, “The GT45X stays true to the Hatteras brand DNA from its legendary construction and offshore performance to its luxury accommodations and attention to detail.”

Like the rest of the legendary GT Series, the new GT45X Open is built utilizing Hatteras Yachts advanced resin-infusion construction technology to deliver a superior, dry ride; optimal fuel efficiency and speeds of 40+ knots (with upgrade power).

The GT45X Open features an open-air, “wind-in-your-hair” helm with an all-new, single-piece front windshield with horizontal parking wipers for maximum visibility and unobstructed views. The bridge deck is furnished with captain and companion seats plus a large, L-shaped settee, so everyone can enjoy the ride together when the boat is underway.

Available with an optional hardtop or tower (shown above), the GT45X Open is packed with the same high-quality sportfishing features as the other models in the GT45X series, including a large cockpit and mezzanine seating incorporating fish boxes, bait-and-tackle center, electric grill, and freezer.

There are two insulated fish boxes with macerators in the cockpit sole, a 56-gallon transom live well, and a transom door with top gate, all standard.

Below decks, the GT45X Open is the ultimate weekend cruiser with its open-concept salon/galley, private forward stateroom, and roomy head. Further proving its flexibility, the GT45X is available with an alternate two-stateroom layout that adds an enclosed bunkroom, enabling you to bring the kids or friends along on your adventures. Easy access to water sports is assured by the large optional swim platform.

No matter what passions “float your boat,” the new Hatteras GT45X Open is the crossover vessel that can take you there.
