A highly an­tic­i­pated new model for the iconic North Carolina builder

Hat­teras Yachts has an­nounced plans to build a new model, the GT59, at its boat­build­ing fa­cil­ity in New Bern, North Carolina. The GT59 will join her sis­ter­ships, which in­clude the GT45X, GT54, GT63 and GT70, in cur­rent pro­duc­tion. The new boat will fea­ture a large 153-square-foot cock­pit with full mez­za­nine. A pair of Cater­pil­lar C32A diesels will power the new Hat­teras to cruis­ing speeds in the mid-30-knot range, with a top speed of 40 knots.

Head­ing be­lowdecks, a three-state­room/twohead lay­out is stan­dard.

Op­tional lay­outs in­clude a tackle-stor­age sta­tion with work­bench, or a third head. “We are build­ing on the suc­cess of the GT Se­ries and tak­ing it to the next level with the GT59,” says Hat­teras pres­i­dent and CEO Kelly Grindle. “With this model, we are of­fer­ing our cus­tomers a boat that will de­liver the same high level of per­for­mance and fisha­bil­ity as the rest of the GT Se­ries, as well as one with an up­dated in­te­rior and flex­i­ble lower-deck ac­com­mo­da­tions plans. It’s built for fish­ing while also of­fer­ing the pre­mium fit and fin­ish and ameni­ties of a lux­ury mo­to­ry­acht.” The boat is ex­pected to splash in late 2018.
