POWER BOAT GUIDE REVIEW
Introduced back in 1980, the continuing attraction of the Hatteras 56 Motor Yacht—aside from her rugged construction and traditional profile—is her spacious and very comfortable interior. Built on a beamy modified-V hull with a deep keel, the 56 was considered a very luxurious yacht in an era when Hatteras practically
owned the market for big motor yachts. Her three-stateroom floorplan is arranged with the galley down (typical of most motor yachts of her day), and split engine rooms flank the corridor leading aft to the master stateroom. The wheelhouse is completely open to the salon, providing good fore and aft views from the lower
helm position. Outside, the semi-enclosed aft deck is large enough for serious entertaining activities—something not always true with modern motor yachts. Wing doors open to broad side decks, and the huge flybridge has space for a dinghy as well as seating for a small crowd. Note that bridge overhangs partially shelter the side decks, and molded bench seating is found on the foredeck. With
standard 8V92TIs, the 56 MY will cruise at 15–16 knots and reach 18 knots top. Note that in 1981, a 6-foot cockpit extension created the popular Hatteras 61 Cockpit MY.

Building The Hatteras Legend
Two strong currents collide near Cape Hatteras: pride and perseverance. We’re a product of the storied coastal waters from which we borrow our name. Unforgiving seas where, for hundreds of years, dreams were sacrificed and legends born. So when others say we’re obsessed with over-engineering every detail, we know it is simply the right way to build a yacht. The uncompromising union of inspired design, breakthrough innovation and unmatched craftsmanship.
Our commitment began over 55 years ago when Hatteras founder, Willis Slane, envisioned a new breed of fishing boat. One strong enough to tame the waves off Cape Hatteras. What followed was the birth of a legend. Beginning with the Knit Wits, the 40-foot fiberglass yacht that revolutionized the industry, Hatteras served notice that our yachts would now be the standard to which all others were judged – above and below the waterline.
From that initial breakthrough vessel to each innovative yacht that has followed through the decades, Hatteras has offered a level of craftsmanship focused on perfecting every detail and over delivering on every expectation. When Hatteras began, some asked why our yachts were made this way. These days, they just want to know how.
There is an undaunted spirit in the Hatteras brand. You can see it in the obsessive work of the men and women who pour their talent and heart into building each legendary vessel. You can feel it in the way the Hatteras hull cuts confidently through waters that lesser boats dare not enter. But more than anything, you can witness it inside the ambitious souls who make Hatteras an expression of their own drive for adventure. Those who are unwilling to compromise and determined to push boundaries. So, for all those who celebrate a life without limits, we welcome you aboard.
