Hatteras Yachts

Located in New Bern, North Carolina, Hatteras Yachts manufactures luxury production and semi-custom sportfishing yachts and motor yachts up to 30.48 metres in length.

History of Hatteras Yachts

Hatteras Yachts is a pioneer in the manufacture of luxury yachts built of GRP. The company got its start in 1959, when wooden boat construction was still the norm, after textile manufacturer Willis Slane and a group of investors hired naval architect Jack Hargrave to design a yacht that could stand up to the challenging conditions of the waters off North Carolina’s Cape Hatteras. The Hatteras 41 Convertible Yacht Fisherman Knit Wits was the first production yacht of its size to be built of fiberglass.

The success of Knit Wits enabled Hatteras Yachts to develop a series of production Convertibles – sportfishing yachts that are equally capable of competing in fishing tournaments and carrying owners in comfort on offshore voyages. Hatteras also launched a series of semi-custom luxury motor yachts that placed a focus more on cruising than on sportfishing.

Ownership of Hatteras Yachts has changed ownership several times, most recently in 2013 when an affiliate of Versal Capital Management, LLC, acquired the company, along with CABO Yachts, from the Brunswick Corporation.

Notable Hatteras Yachts

In 2013, Hatteras Yachts launched its flagship, the first hull in the shipyard’s 100 Raised Pilothouse Series, the 31-metre Mr. Loui. Designed by Hatteras’ in-house team in collaboration with T4Design by Enrico Gobbi, the Hatteras 100 RP has bold exterior styling, accommodations for eight guests in four staterooms, and a maximum speed of 25 knots.
