The redesigned GT60 was the first installment in the Hatteras GT Series, an exciting family of tournament class convertibles designed for serious anglers. It comes to market with best-in-class performance, unforgettable styling, and a construction pedigree that has made Hatteras Yachts the gold standard for more than 50 years. It is the culmination five decades of leadership in convertible design and propulsion development, combined with the latest technological advances in materials and methods utilized in fiberglass construction.
The Hatteras GT60 takes its exterior design cues from the 60C, but a newly redesigned cockpit and a touch of panache added to the overall design give this 60 a unique style of her own. But what is most noticeable about the GT60 is its performance.
The new GT60 sports a top-end speed of 41-knots at full load, a 36-knot crusie, and range exceeding 400nm when equipped with CAT C32A’s @ 1900bhp. This performance is made possible by utilizing resin infusion technology in our solid fiberglass bottom hulls. This provides increased strength while allowing the boat to be much lighter than a traditional hand-laid vessel. Achieving these speeds while preserving our legendary ride, the models in the GT Series, represent the next generation in hull design from Hatteras.
Equipped to meet the standards of the most competitive anglers, the cockpit of the GT60 was designed for improved fishing as well as increased relaxation. Mezzanine seating is more comfortable than ever and cockpit features include a dedicated tackle center, in-deck fish boxes, and an optional recirculating live well at the transom. Stowage is excellent, with compartments for gaffs and boat hooks along with ample rod storage.
On the flybridge, the GT60 features a standard center console with room for three monitors and Palm Beach-style controls at the helm pod. For those needing more room for electronics and storage, a peninsula helm station is available. Both offer excellent visibility both forward and aft into the cockpit.
An optional teak package is available for the coaming boards, cockpit sole and toerail for those who want to play up the GT60’s distinctive design.
