Built on a solid fiberglass hull with an unconventional convex bow shape designed to shrug off head-seas, the Hatteras 68 Convertible can outrun and outgun the competition while keeping its passengers comfortable thanks to a 21'6" beam (by far the widest in its class). Deep propeller pockets, tunnel tabs, hull-side air vents - the technological advancements are many, but what can't be overlooked are enduring elements such as the big, fishing-friendly cockpit with mezzanine seating, or the open flybridge with pod-style helm and extended overhang. Inside, a four-stateroom, four-head layout with warm woods and hospitable social areas is classic Hatteras. Boats like our 68 Convertible are at the forefront of yacht design, timeless yet cutting edge. Look no further for evidence than your local dealer or our website.

Exterior Details

The Hatteras 68 Convertible features a fresh approach to cockpit and bridge design, as well as groundbreaking technology in the engine room and ship�s systems. All of which allow this thoroughbred to run at the forefront of today�s competitive tournament circuit.

Customizable Cockpit. The 68 sports a 192-square-foot cockpit with a raised mezzanine level for superior seating and amenities. The upper deck houses a double-size bait freezer, insulated storage tubs, tackle drawers, and more, and because it is designed in a modular fashion, owners can choose the location of various components. Below the cockpit sole is a large, open lazarette that is accessible through the engine room hatch. This compartment provides convenient storage of equipment and gear, and an aft isolation bulkhead with door allows easy inspection of the steering components.

High-Flying Flybridge. The standard, open arrangement offers wraparound seating forward of the console, along with a freezer and beverage cooler to fuel social gatherings. The pod-style helm includes single-lever controls with emergency backups, and our touch-screen systems monitor is standard too. A large overhang extends aft and is topped with two Murray Products helm chairs, with room (and a backing plate) for an optional third. To starboard, a rear-facing jump seat provides quick access to the ladder when reinforcements are needed in the cockpit. All-weather anglers will want to consider our optional enclosed flybridge arrangement.

Convex Hull Shape. The 68�s hull shape features a �warped� bottom with a sharp entry forward and highly variable deadrise that flows from 20 degrees amidships to 2 degrees at the transom. The convexity of the bow lessen wave impact and results in an incredibly smooth ride in head seas. Flatter sections aft reduce water resistance, improving handling at low speeds and increasing stability while planing. Specially designed strakes that bisect the stagnation line (the point at which the water�s surface meets the hull bottom once on plane) provide additional lift and improve tracking in all conditions. Double chines and a flared bow deflect spray out and away from the boat. There�s simply no better ride in the industry.

Deep Propeller Pockets. Our hull tunnels, including those on the 68, are deeper than most, which reduces drag and allows for larger propellers to be tucked in tighter to the hull. That tight fit provides uniform containment around the blades and eliminates the slapping of water against the hull that typically comes with a flat bottom. It also helps accelerate the water through the blades for better performance and results in a shallower draft. The 68, in fact, draws an enviable 5'3".

Patent-Pending Propulsion. The 68 boasts several engineering innovations that demonstrate our commitment to industry-leading performance and design precision. The new tunnel trim tab system, for instance, utilizes the thrust energy of the tunnel to increase control with only 30 percent of the normal tab area. A new cylindrical keyway and key eliminates stress risers, leading to a significantly longer life for propeller shafts. New crosscut bearings use interlacing grooves to ensure a consistent film of lubricating water and longer life for bearings, plus less noise while trolling or cruising. To top it off, we use stainless-steel rudders, which are far stronger and lighter than comparable bronze rudders.

Interior Details

Serious sportfishing machine or upscale cruiser? It can be hard to tell inside our brawny yet beautiful 68 Convertible. Escape, relax, and recharge in this spacious four-stateroom, four-head home away from home.
Superior Salon. A simple sliding door leads from the cockpit to the salon, but it�s more like stepping into a whole new world of refined elegance and comfort. Warm tones emanate from the genuine cherry wood cabinetry and accents in either a satin or high-gloss finish. A giant, U-shaped lounge and custom club chair provide comfortable sitting and viewing of the 42-inch flat-screen TV. (There is storage below the former for an arsenal of fishing rods.)

Deluxe Dining. In the galley, several deep storage drawers and surplus pantry space serve passengers well on long voyages. Under-counter refrigerators and solid-surface countertops keep the area clean and uncluttered, while the four-burner ceramic cook top and microwave/convection oven keep it functional. Genuine cherry inserts highlight the appliance fascias. Across from the galley, a U-shaped dinette with storage drawers underneath is as practical as it is beautiful. This area even includes a computer workstation for increased productivity when the fish aren�t cooperating.

Suite Nirvana. An amazingly inviting, full-beam master stateroom amidships features a king-sized berth and padded headboard. Twin portlights provide ambient light, and two nightstands, dressers port and starboard, and a walk-in closet lined with cedar accommodate a full complement of clothing and gear. The master head�s solid-surface countertops, bowed-front cabinetry, and mirrored fascia impart a spacious and glamorous feel.

Alluring Staterooms. Staying in a guest cabin isn�t a compromise aboard our 68. Pamper visiting passengers in the VIP stateroom at the bow, or in the starboard guest stateroom, which houses side-by-side berths that slide together to make a queen. Crew quarters, featuring an upper/lower bunk arrangement, lie to port. All compartments are crowned with warm wall coverings and headliners.
