Hatteras Yachts in Perspective
Hatteras Yachts will always be known in the maritime industry as one of the three companies, the other 2 yacht building companies are Hinckley and Bertram, which pioneered in the use of fibreglass core material in the construction of superyachts and pleasure boats. All three yacht building companies are still operating today.
Hatteras Yachts was established in 1959 as the personal production line by Willis Slane, owner of North Carolina Knitting Mill, who was known to be seriously engaged in fishing. Since its inception in 1959, the yacht building company has created a solid reputation as a premier source of high-end fibreglass yachts and fishing boats.
Hatteras Yachts has also been known as the premier source of cored hull structures that are blister-resistant. During the early years of its operation and until the 80s, the yacht building company has exclusively engaged in yacht construction projects using fibreglass as core material.
