Hatteras GT 63: Broad windshields with pantographic wipers give the operator a good view of the sea ahead from the enclosed wheelhouse of the Hatteras GT 63, while curved panels on the console provide plenty of space for large-screen electronics. With its raised companion settees and social area, the bridge is another space that enhances cruising comfort and the boat’s overall versatility as a true convertible.
Hatteras GT 70: The helm features a teak console ($7,895) with Palm Beach sticks to the sides. We’d rather see the side panels rotate into position rather than keep covers propped up at all times. Strata-glass surrounds the entire flying bridge on three sides. Note that the screens are mounted low for good visibility forward.
Hatteras GT 70: We like the bait prep station on the port side of the mezzanine under the latter. While bait is often frozen and rigged, some anglers still prefer to use live bait. Then, there are places in the world where the game fish are huge and there is no frozen bait available.
Hatteras GT 70: An elevated station to port stores lures in drawers in the cabinet under the counter and allows for baits to be rigged without the crew constantly bending over as we see on some boats. The top can be fitted with a grill ($4,020) for cooking up the catch of the day.
Hatteras GT 70: Here is a view of the fighting chair and mezzanine seating. Notice the rod holders going up the side bulkheads and the navigation display to the starboard bulkhead. We like the athwartships ladder to the flying bridge because its angles are safer than a more typical steep, forward facing ladder.
