All photos from August xxxx. Source: Peter Bohr, Sea Magazine Hatteras 46 Convertible stands the test of time The Hatteras name conjures up magic to many power boat aficionados. Since xxxx, the company's craftsmen in High Point, North Carolina have been turning out some of the world's most esteemed motoryachts and convertible sportfishers. Unlike other venerable boat manufacturers -- and despite being located in the heart of America's furniture-building industry area -- Hatteras never built a hull from timber. When the company was founded, others were building relatively small craft out of a new, promising material called fiberglass. Hatteras' first production boat was a 41-footer, and the company pioneered the way as a builder of large fiberglass boats. And Hatteras is still turning out big fiberglass yachts, renowned for their high quality and their high price tags. Among the dozens of models offered by the company during the last three and a half decades, the Hatteras 46 Convertible ranks as one of the company's most popular models ever. Between xxxx and xxxx, some 270 of them left High Point: not bad for a boat that sold for almost $400,000 during its last year of production. The 46 Convertible is the very paradigm of an American sportfisher. It's not a flashy design -- Hatteras boats never are -- but it is still remarkably handsome nearly 10 years after production ended. Like other Hatteras boats, the 46 Convertible was a carefully conceived, evolutionary step forward from the models that came before it. The 46-footer's hull design is not vastly different from that of the original Hatteras 41. Both were designs from J.B. Hargrave, a naval architect still closely associated with Hatteras. The 46 has a modified-V hull with a deep, full-length keel and a moderate transom deadrise. By all accounts from those who've spent much time aboard a 46, this rather basic design works well under all kinds of sea conditions -- whether going down swell, across a quartering sea or beating into a sea. The boat is generally dry and is not given to rolling either at anchor or at trolling speeds. In its early years, the 46 came with a pair of 450 hp 8V-71TI Detroit Diesels. Cruising speed is a modest 20 to 21 knots -- and at that speed, the 46 burns 32 gallons of fuel an hour. The 46 is a true convertible. Its comfortable accommodations make it a popular cruiser, but its forte is, of course, fishing. With a cockpit that measures nearly 9 feet long by 10 feet wide -- plus a roomy flying bridge -- the 46 has lured many a serious angler. Two floor plans were offered. The galley-down arrangement is clearly the choice of anglers -- or anyone expecting to spend much time at sea. It offers two staterooms, each with twin berths and its own head compartment. With either arrangement, vast amounts of stowage are available in hanging lockers, drawers and under-berth compartments. As you might expect of any Hatteras, the 46 brims with features that indicate quality and thoughtful design. Fuel filters, separators and manifold switches are clearly marked and placed. All wiring is both color-coded and numbered. And the primary generator is in the engine room. Many 46-footers carry the generator under the cockpit sole, where it's more likely to get wet. "Hatteras boats stand up well during the survey process," said Gary Stevens, owner of Maritime Consultants in Newport Beach. "They're usually worth their premium in price." All this goodness means that these Hatteras 46 Convertibles hold their value exceedingly well. While you may find a xxxxs fixer for around $160,000, you should expect to pay close to $300,000 for a mid-xxxxs version with 650 hp diesels.Listing originally posted at http://new-jersey.findanyboat.com/boats/46-xxxx-hatteras-convertible.html
