An updated version of the original Hatteras 46 Convertible (1974–81), the “Series II” version of this classic sportfishing yacht is nearly identical in appearance to her predecessor but a much-improved boat in several respects. Instead of the solid fiberglass hull of the original 46, the Series II version rides on a beefed-up hull with balsa coring in the hullsides and extra transverse frames in the bottom. (The keel was also shortened to improve handling and reduce wetted surface.) In other upgrades, a sliding door replaced the original hinged salon door, and fuel capacity was increased to 710 gallons. The interior layouts were also revised in the Series II. The standard two-stateroom floorplan features a lower galley arrangement that’s open to the salon, while the deckhouse galley configuration provides an expansive salon-galley area plus a third stateroom. Either layout offers a forward master stateroom and port guest stateroom with upper/lower berths. A tackle center with sink, in-deck fish box, and transom door were standard in the cockpit. Note the air intakes under the coaming. Detroit 650hp high-performance 8V92 diesels cruise the Hatteras 46 in the mid 20s (26–28 knots top).
Overview Classic Hatteras convertible with bold 1970s styling delivered lasting blend of upscale accommodations, tournament-grade fishability.
Features Several two-stateroom floorplans were available over the years, all with handcrafted teak woodwork. Cockpit, flybridge were considered state-of-the-art in her era.
Comments Sliding door replaced original hinged salon door in 1982. One of last Hatteras convertibles with front windshield. Updated 46 model introduced in 1986.
Performance GM 425hp diesels cruise at 19–20 knots; 650hp GMs (1982–85) cruise at 25 knots.
