While sloppy weather can keep many anglers in port and off the water for the day, those involved in big-money billfish tournaments need to be able to head out to the fishing grounds pretty much whenever they want, even when it's nasty.

If speeding out to the big ones in luxury is your thing, have a look at our Quick Tour video. You can learn more by reading our full review: Hatteras 70 GT Convertible: Sportfishing Dream
