Best Of The Best 2006: Space Ship

  • Michael Schulze

With the widest beam (19 feet, 6 inches), shallowest draft (4 feet, 10 in­ches), and largest fuel capacity (1,950 gallons) in its class, the Hatteras 64 Convertible offers the kinds of features and amenities you would expect to find in a larger custom boat. The cockpit measures a full 164 square feet, while down below, the standard three-stateroom, three-head accommodation area features the only full-beam master stateroom in a boat this size, with an unprecedented 166 square feet of floor space.

A mezzanine level provides an expansive freezer and storage area and a convenient modular design. The 186-square-foot flybridge has a variety of sophisticated control features, and all of the boat’s entertainment, navigational, and security functions are integrated into a single system.

With twin 1,800 hp Caterpillar C32s, the 64 achieves a top speed of about 46 mph and a cruising speed of 40 mph, for a range of about 460 miles. The base price with the 1,800 hp engines is less than $3 million.
