Small might be a relative term when your fleet starts at 54 feet, but
the new GT54 is the little sister of Hatteras’s GT series, which includes
60- and 63-foot models. Fast and fishy were the goals that the design
team set out with for the GT, and they’ve certainly accomplished that
first aspect. Each of the boats in the series can reach 40 knots plus top
end speeds. The GT54 is the lightest of the bunch, having shed weight
compared with previous designs through an improved fiberglass lay-up
schedule that results in more strength at less weight.
But the designers also set out to take the looks of the GT back
to Hatteras’s Carolina roots. The distinctive flare, graceful shear, and
tumble-home aft, combine into a modern interpretation of the best of the
sportfishers they’ve been building for 50 years. www.Hatteras Yachts.com
