How does a Hatteras engine room stand out from the competition? Let us count the ways.
“We set it up like our own personal workshop,” said David Clubbs, director of research & development. “We make sure it’s efficient and functional; that you can see everything and everything is easy to access.” In fact, most of the equipment is installed in order of priority, with valves and gauges you need for daily checks up front, and annual service ports further back.
Ease of service and maintenance throughout the life of the boat also is optimized. For example, we install air conditioning maintenance ports at optimum points for flushing the raw water air conditioning cooling lines. “It takes a two-day job down to two hours,” Clubbs reported.
