Hatteras 60 GT SportfishGood Genetics, Sound Synthetics & Sweet Aesthetics Review by Loren Schweizer / Detail shots by Tom Serio The new Hatteras 60GT, as viewed from all angles, is simply gorgeous. Its unbroken shear line rises progressively to a bow that rivals Hatt’s larger sportfish boats; a whopping seven feet, eight inches! Replete with its Carolina-ish flare and a traditional tumblehome transom, this eye-catching, finely balanced sportfish evokes the notion... “These guys got it right!” Jack Hargrave would be proud. This is art! The whole effect is at once traditional. Strakes gracefully rising up forward from the waterline as they converge at the bow while the knuckle running parallel to the waterline adds a sleek touch. No bow rails to mar that graceful bow, nor pulpit or windlass (these are options), just a teak toerail and a teak trim piece running around the flybridge in place of a feature stripe. Understated and clean; as it should be. If you’ve come this far, Dear Reader, you deserve to know that the answer to the "is beauty-only-skin-deep?" and "are-all-the-guts-there?" question. It's a resounding YES. In Spades. While this hull configuration dates back to 2007, the GT model existed as a group of options. The 2010 60 GT is now a dedicated model - no need to tick off any options boxes - and will soon be joined by 54 & 63 versions. Also particular to the GT are the engines, gears & props (ZF 2.42:1 reduction), mahogany interior, and the layout. Prior to nailing the final design, the Hatteras folks made an interior mock-up and received a lot of input for maximizing ‘flow’ and ergonomics from owners.
