The Company offers the details of this vessel in good faith but cannot guarantee or warrant the accuracy of this information nor warrant the condition of the vessel. A buyer should instruct his agents, or his surveyors, to investigate such details as the buyer desires validated. This vessel is offered subject to prior sale, price change, or withdrawal without notice.
Vessel Technical Overview
The convex hull of the 68 features a "warped bottom" with a sharp entry forward and highly variable deadrise that flows from 20 degrees amidships to 2 degrees at the transom. The convexity of the bow lessens wave impact and results in an incredibly smooth ride in head seas. Flatter sections aft reduce water resistance, improving handling at low speeds and increasing stability while planing. Specially designed strakes that bisect the stagnation line (the point at which the water's surface meets the hull bottom once on plane) provide additional lift and improve tracking in all conditions. Double chines and a flared bow deflect spray out and away from the boat. There's simply no better ride in the industry.
Another shining advantage the 68CV has over competitors is her 5'3"draft, made possible by deep propeller pockets that reduce drag and allow for larger propellers to be tucked in tighter to the hull. That tight fit provides uniform containment around the blades and eliminates the slapping of water against the hull that typically comes with a flat bottom. It also helps accelerate the water through the blades for better performance.
The 68 boasts several engineering innovations that demonstrate Hatteras' commitment to industry leading performance and design precision. The new tunnel trim tab system, for instance, utilizes the thrust energy of the tunnel to increase control with only 30 percent of the normal tab area. A new cylindrical key way and key eliminates stress risers, leading to a significantly longer life for propeller shafts. New crosscut bearings use interlacing grooves to ensure a consistent film of lubricating water and longer life for bearings, plus less noise while trolling or cruising. To top it off, Hatteras uses stainless-steel rudders, which are far stronger and lighter than comparable bronze rudders.
Ever heard a Captain say "There's no replacement for displacement" when it comes to navigating in rough seas? Well the 68 Hatteras fits that bill weighing in at 156,000lbs. with her solid fiberglass hull and sturdy build. Not to worry about performance though, with the upgraded MTU/Detroit Diesel 16v 2000's you will be effortlessly cruising at 29 knots with a top end of 33 knots. The reliability of the 16v 2000's is known throughout the industry and the performance will speak for itself vs. the standard CAT C-32's that other 68's have.
