JUST SPLASHED: March / April 2015

Hatteras 45 EX

    Hatteras Yachts takes style and innovation to a new level with its Express Series, which debuted at the 2014 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The first model in this new series is the Hatteras 45 EX, which is available in two styles including the Cruiser and Sportfish. Both models are available in a standard one stateroom or optional two stateroom layout. Standard features on both models include a resin-infused solid fiberglass hull bottom, integrated hardtop, a large single-pane forward windshield, and Hatteras custom-engineered sound deadening materials and systems to reduce overall noise and vibration.
    Below-deck amenities include a home theater system with 32-inch TV, dinette seating with functional storage underneath, and warm accents and furnishings. The U-shaped galley offers quartz countertops, storage, ceramic cooktop, microwave/convection oven, finished wood cabinets and under-counter lighting. The optional interior arrangement provides additional sleeping space in a portside guest bunkroom with upper and lower berths, without compromising living space or luxury in the main cabin area. The forward master stateroom features an island berth and private head access.
    The 45 EX Sportfish is fully rigged for tournament fishing and features a mezzanine cockpit with integrated storage and a freezer below the seating plus a bait and tackle prep center with tackle storage and an electric grill built in. There’s also a 56-gallon transom livewell, two insulated in-deck fish boxes with macerators, fresh and saltwater washdown and a hot and cold hand-held cockpit shower plus an insulated drink box and walk-through transom door.

Notable standard features include a foldaway rear bench seat, deluxe bolster seats, freshwater head, under console berth, vertical rod storage, power assist steering, port and starboard 75-gallon insulated fish boxes with macerator pumps, a 35-gallon transom livewell, composite T-top with molded-in courtesy lights, and a Fusion Stereo system. Some of the popular options available include Yamaha Helm Master, a starboard side dive door and an entertainment package with electric grill and refrigerator on the FE model, which also includes a wrap-around bow seating area with height-adjustable table that converts to a sun pad for lounging. The Tournament Edition (TE) is the serious offshore fisherman's dream and has range of up to 500 miles. Features include a 100-gallon coffin fish box ahead of the console, ample rod storage plus a ready rod-rack aft of the helm seats, single level cockpit sole, and day berth beneath the console to get out of the weather on overnight trips.
