Having done our own refit of a 1986 Hatteras five years ago and knowing several other owners of vintage Hatteras yachts who have done the same, we applaud the builder’s announcement this week that the factory will now be in the re-hab business. In fact, Hatteras has been quietly re-working old boats all year and it is an important step and will be a positive move for the brand. For many years Hatteras’ biggest competitor was the used Hatteras market. And as we have pointed out on these pages from time to time, re-powering and re-habbing old Hatteras yachts (and Bertrams, too) is a great way to get a large, well-built boat for a very low price indeed.
Hatteras will now re-fit, re-power, re-work and otherwise re-hap old Hatteras yachts. This is big news for the thousands of Hatteras owners across the country.
