A hugely successful model (over 125 were built), the Hatteras 60 Convertible was once viewed as the ultimate combination of engineering excellence and sportfishing luxury. Offered with an open or enclosed flybridge, the 60 rides on a solid fiberglass hull with a wide 18-foot beam and deep keel. Although the dark teak interior is dated by modern decor standards, the floorplan features a roomy salon with entertainment center and L-shaped sofa, U-shaped galley forward with under-counter refrigeration, and dinette opposite the galley. There are three staterooms and three full heads below. The amidships master stateroom has a walkaround queen berth, and the guest cabins have over/under berths. A separate utility room forward of the engine compartment houses the air-conditioning compressors, washer/dryer, workbench, etc. The massive 175-square-foot cockpit includes a molded tackle center, bait freezer, in-deck storage, and direct access to the engine room. In 1986, a High Performance model became available with bigger 825hp 12V71 engines (2022 knots cruise), balsa coring in the hullsides, and beefed-up internal strengthening. Standard Detroit 650hp 12V71 diesels cruise at 1618 knots (20 knots top).
