40 Double Cabin
Length w/ Pulpit:
A top-selling model for Hatteras, the 40 Double Cabins blend of modern styling and versatile accommodations set the standards for motoryachts her size for many years. The last of the so-called small Hatteras models, the 40 Double Cabin is built on a modified-V hull with a moderate 13'7"" beam, cored hullsides, and prop pockets to level the engines and reduce draft. For the first few years of production the galley-down teak interior featured an L-shaped sofa is to port in the salon with a serving counter to starboard overlooking the galley. The aft master stateroom includes a centerline queen bed, hanging locker, and ensuite head with shower. The interior was redesigned in 1990 with a salon dinette and wet bar, more open galley area, and enlarged bow stateroom with three bunks. Additional updates in 1990 included a new flybridge layout with a swept-back windscreen and forward helm station, and a full-height entry door to the salon. Also in the newer floorplan is a locker in the aft companionway for a washer/dryer. A lower helm station was optional. No lightweight, standard gas engines cruise at just 1314 knots. Optional Cat 425hp diesels cruise 1820 knots. Over 125 of these yachts were built.
