Hatteras Yachts revolutionized the production of sportfishing convertibles and luxury motor yachts when they built the world's first fiberglass yacht over 40 feet and they have continued the pioneering spirit for decades!
Hatteras is based in New Bern, North Carolina. The yacht manufacturing company was founded by Willis Slane, who envisioned a new path for sportfishing yachts in 1959. He wanted a sport fisher that could handle the treacherous waters off Cape Hatteras, where the yacht takes its name.
Hatteras pioneered numerous technologies still used today in the marine industry including convex and modified-V hull designs, lamination methods and propulsion systems. The commitment to design and engineering resulted in a long list of patents and industry accolades. And the legendary craftsmanship endures as Hatteras continues producing new sportfishing convertibles and luxury motor yachts.
The Hatteras name can be found on the MLS in a variety of styles including Hatteras Pilothouse, Hatteras Motor Yacht, Hatteras Convertible, Hatteras Express, Hatteras Sportfish, and Hatteras Express Sportfish.
