At one time Hatteras built more production motoryachts than any other company in the world. Today it is merely the largest builder of big motoryachts on U.S. soil. For 50 years, through changes in ownership and top management, Hatteras has stayed faithful to core principals of solid boat building, and has always produced top-quality yachts no matter who owned and ran the company. Its legacy has been jealously guarded by a dedicated cadre of engineers, factory managers, shop-floor foremen and craftsmen who have worked at Hatteras for most of their careers, through thick and thin. We will investigate the details of the new Hatteras 60 Motor Yacht model in the Captain’s Report that follows, but make no mistake about what is the most important aspect of this boat – the fact that she was built by people who know what they are doing when it comes to large, seaworthy, practical yachts.
