It is almost as if the Hatteras designers looked at the best convertibles on the market in the 64’ range and decided to one-up the leading competitors on the market in all of the important parameters. The Hatteras 64 C is longer, beamier, has the shallowest draft, the most displacement, and carries more fuel than her prime competitors. She makes good use of her 19’ 6” beam (6 m) to be able to handle big diesels in her belly, and provide a larger saloon and a bigger flying bridge above. She has the distinction of being the only convertible in the mid-60-foot range to have a full beam master stateroom, something you usually only see on motoryachts. As convertibles are used more and more for cruising, particularly in Europe and in Latin America, cruising comfort, amenities and practicality are playing a larger role in the decision-making process.
