Worth Noting: The Hatteras 41 Convertible was the first all-fiberglass sportfishing boat of her size in the industry (1960).
The Hatteras legend began on the barrier islands of the North Carolina shore where the frigid waters of the Labrador Current encounter the tropical Gulf Stream. The outcome is Diamond Shoals – home to some of the most turbulent and untamed waters in the Atlantic and some of the best sportfishing in the world.
Willis Slane envisioned building a boat that could conquer the waters of Diamond Shoals and surmount the Hatteras weather. He founded Hatteras Yachts in 1959 in High Point, North Carolina.
Breaking with all tradition, Slane chose a new material, fiberglass, to build this noteworthy motoryacht that revolutionized the yachting industry.
With marine architect, Jack Hargrave, Hatteras produced its first sportfishing yacht, Knit Wits, in 1960. She was a 41-foot twin cabin sportfisherman with a 14-foot beam and a pair of 275-hp Lincoln V-8s. The response was enthusiastic and the Hatteras legend was born.
Hatteras launched the 41 Double Cabin in 1962, which was the first fiberglass motor yacht. The market soon demanded bigger boats, and so the Hatteras sportfishing fleet expanded, first to 50′ boats and later up to 90′ convertibles. Hatteras also began designing and producing a line of cruising yachts that now ranges from 63 to 110’+ in length.
For over 50 years, Hatteras has focused on building vessels with advanced hull designs and construction and optimized weight distribution.
