Hatteras GT 70:
Tested at 40 Knots in 3’ to 5’ Seas
We got some bumpy conditions on the day we tested the Hatteras GT 70, and in 3’ to 5’ (0.91-1.52 m) seas we were able to run at 40 knots, thanks to the optional 2,600-hp MTUs doing the heavy work. Hatteras has been building offshore performers for a long time, and the company makes no secret of its winning combination of hull shape, light weight, and power.
