Introduced in 2002, the Hatteras 54 was a dramatic departure from earlier Hatteras convertible designs. Aside from her sleek “new-look” styling, the 54 was the first Hatteras convertible to ride on the company’s then-new convex hull form with cored hullsides, shallow keel, and propeller pockets to reduce shaft angles. Belowdecks, the tasteful interior reflects the practical layout and meticulous finish common to all late-model Hatteras yachts. Three staterooms are situated on the lower level, and Hatteras made maximum use of space by extending both the master and second guest stateroom under the salon floor. Each room has its own climate control and entertainment center, and the master stateroom includes a 15-inch flat-screen TV. With nearly 150 square feet of space, the cockpit is up to the demands of any hardcore angler. Topside, the flybridge is designed with a pair of chairs and an optional electronically operated console.
