Length w/ Pulpit:
Introduced as a replacement for the popular Hatteras 36 (196977), the 37 Convertible never achieved the widespread popularity of her predecessor in spite of her improved profile and roomier accommodations. Shes built on a solid fiberglass hull with twin chines, a long keel, and moderate deadrise at the transom. The 37s galley-up, two-stateroom interior is paneled in teak, and a double berth became available in the forward stateroom beginning with the 1982 models. A stall shower is located in the double-entry head compartment. Large wraparound cabin windows give the salon a surprisingly spacious feeling for a 37-foot boat, and her tournament-style flybridge offers seating for five. Additional features include a molded bow pulpit, transom door, and relatively wide side decks. A lower helm was optional. At 29,000 pounds, the Hatteras 37 is no lightweight, and with only 330 gallons of fuel, shes not a long-range boat. GM 310hp 6-71N diesels cruise at 1718 knots with a top speed of about 21 knots, and optional 390hp 6-71TI diesels cruise at 1820 knots and reach a top speed in the neighborhood of 23 knots.
