The Hatteras 54 Convertible is designed specifically to deliver a smooth ride while operating at high speeds. The convexity in the hull shape helps make this hull immensely strong. The slight outward curvature (viewed from keel to chine) reduces impact accelerations and contributes to an incredibly smooth head-sea ride. Traditional Hatteras double chines are incorporated into the hull design to provide the Hatteras dry ride. A slight twist in the hull bottom - better defined as a variation of deadrise with length - provides flatter sections in the aftermost portion of the hull. These sections reduce resistance, improve handling at low speeds and increase transverse stability while planing. Access to the spacious (150 sq. feet) flybridge is gained from a ladder on the outboard port side of the cockpit. This one-piece molded bridge will delight the seasoned captain for its ergonomic layout and sheer space. The helm station with its pod console takes center stage. The ergonomically positioned steering wheel (with power steering and a rudder angle indicator) and single-lever electronic engine controls, fitted with mechanical backups and trolling valve switches, are comfortably operated seated or standing. There is plenty of room for a comprehensive suite of electronics on the angled flats. Guest seating is provided to port on the molded fiberglass lounge with removable cushions (and storage below) and to starboard on the L-shaped bench seat. An insulated drink box is included. Whether you opt for a Bimini, hardtop, or full enclosure with tower, the flybridge offers a rich mix of fresh air, a breathtaking view and quiet surroundings to enjoy with family and friends.
