Hatteras 60 Convertible uses new hull technology for lower weight

The Hatteras website features details on the Hatteras 60 Convertible. The 60 Convertible features a mezzanine cockpit, lightweight construction, tumblehome curvature in the hullsides and a new tournament edition option.

According to Hatteras..

From the beginning of this model’s design process, the Hatteras product development team has focused squarely on performance and fishability as top priorities.

As such, the new 60 Convertible represents a paradigm shift for the company. Built in Hatteras’ new facility in Swansboro, North Carolina, the 60 will be one of the only fiberglass production boats to feature tumblehome in the hullsides. It will also be the first Hatteras to feature a completely resin-infused hull, rather than one built up of layers of hand-laid fiberglass.

The automated resin-infusion process produces a more uniform hull thickness from one hull to the next, as well as the most ideal glass-to-resin ratio. This one-two punch produces a boat that weighs significantly less because of the lowered resin content, while providing a more precise fit of bulkheads, stringers and other components for increased strength and durability.
