Hatteras Luxury Builders: All Hatteras Yachts are luxurious, spacious, and smooth riding. Manufacturing motor yachts and sports-fishing convertibles is the firm's expertise. The current yacht lineup is comprised of seven motor yachts and eight sports-fishing convertibles. However, the Hatteras 72, which is the outfit's very sweet sixteenth model, is expected to launch by fall 2007. The renowned smooth ride of a Hatteras stems from its patented modified deep-V hull and fuller gear ratios than similar-size yachts. The deep-V hull provides more stability, while the expanded gear ratio allows propellers to turn out slower.
The Hatteras 72, with a beam of more than 20 feet, features a spacious saloon, a full-beam master stateroom, a galley with walk-in pantry, and the dining area comfortably seats six. The kitchenette has a 42-inch upright Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, a four-burner cook top and a microwave convection oven. Including the master stateroom, there are three staterooms below deck. The interior has various exotic wood finishes and granite tabletops are throughout. A 42-inch flat-screen plasma television and a large couch make the saloon the perfect all-purpose recreation room. A sunk-in bar area also is optional. Additional storage space is available with extra storage drawers and overhead cabinets in the galley island. There also is a storage room with two access points that can serve as either an additional stateroom or the crew's quarters.
The spacious aft deck has molded seats and a wood table, and the flybridge can be accessed from either the galley or the aft deck. Additionally, there is a large sunpad on the fore deck that converts into a seat. The port and starboard side decks are very convenient for moving around the entire ship. The windlass is recessed into a well that drains overboard, keeping the forward deck clean.
Hatteras Yachts is an exhibitor at the 2007 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show. Additionally, the 2007 Hatteras Yacht Expo is being held in New Bern, N.C., on July 12-13. Visit the JustLuxé Events Calendar for more info on these shows and other luxury lifestyle shows and events.
