Manufacturer Info



Sport fishermen and cruisers alike have depended upon Hatteras Yachts for one thing, decade after decade: excellent seakeeping abilities. Hatteras likes to remind folks that their designs were born and bred along the North Carolina coast, the “Graveyard of the Atlantic,” where boats are built rugged and are designed to take on rough inlets and open waters. But don’t let that toughness fool you; these yachts also feature interior design and creature comforts that are second to none.
