The newest addition to the Hatteras Yachts line will be the GT65 Carolina, signaling an advanced direction in design with increased performance and numerous custom features. The boat will feature a sleek profile that refreshes the look of the GT Series while still maintaining the core Hatteras DNA.

The GT65 Carolina’s key advantage lies in its cutting-edge hull design. Utilizing computational fluid dynamics analysis, the Hatteras team of engineers optimized the boat’s hull form to ensure superior handling and seaworthiness. In addition, the hull and stringer system will be infused as a single part — an industry first — to reduce weight and increase strength. The GT65 Carolina includes an all-new engine room layout for ease of maintenance and serviceability. Available as an option, twin Seakeeper 9s can be installed without compromising the boat’s fuel capacity.

The GT65’s innovative helm layout incorporates electronics in a nonglare flush-mounted array, while the 194-square-foot cockpit is well laid out. A four-stateroom/three-head layout maximizes the boat’s interior volume.

Hatteras Yachts is building the first GT65 Carolina for Chris and Laura Jessen, owners of Fish Tank Sport Fishing. Their boat is scheduled to splash in fall 2019.
