~Hatteras 54 Convertible
Fish the canyons in 15-footers, cruise the shallow shoals of the Islands, or relax in comfort with the family at the dock all with the new Hatteras 54. Who says every boat has to be a compromise?
Sleek exterior styling features a rakish sheer line and flared bow. But the 54s beautiful looks also herald a hull design that is truly revolutionary designed specifically to deliver a smooth ride and excellent handling while operating at high speed. The convexity in the hull bottom helps make this hull immensely strong. The slight outward curvature (viewed from keel to chine) reduces impact accelerations and contributes to an incredibly smooth head-sea ride.
Traditional Hatteras double chines are incorporated into the hull design to provide additional spray deflection, with the added benefit of improved lift and tracking in heavy seas. A slight twist in the hull bottom, better defined as a variation of deadrise with length, provides flatter sections in the aftermost portion of the hull. These sections reduce resistance, improve handling at low speeds and increase transverse stability while planing. Thus, you can tackle head seas and the most challenging waters with confidence and in comfort. But dont forget the new 54s shallow draft this beauty draws just 4'2" of water. Imagine the new angling and cruising possibilities that will open up for you.
