Hatteras, one of the most venerable names in Sportfishing, reinvented its approach to building Sportfishing Yachts when it designed the 60-foot Convertible. It was the builder’s first to offer a completely resin-infused hull, rather than traditional hand-laid fiberglass construction. Resin infusion produces a more uniform hull structure with a superior glass-to-resin ratio, resulting in higher strength, lower weight, and a more precise fit of bulkheads, stringers, and other structural components. As an environment-friendly side benefit, the process virtually eliminates noxious styrene emissions associated with hand-laid fiberglass construction. Oasis provides standard accommodations which include a three-stateroom, three-head layout featuring a port-side master with forepeak VIP arrangement.
With 1,400-hp Caterpillar 3412E engines, the Hatteras 60 Convertible now cruises at 30 knots and tops out at over 36. The primary design change appears in the aft keel area where deep, finely tuned tunnels have allowed Hatteras engineers to reduce the shaft angle and increase thrust tremendously. A byproduct of the tunnels is a drastically reduced draft. With the optional enclosed flybridge, the 60 Convertible floats in 5'1" of water with an enclosed bridge and 4'11" when equipped with the standard open flybridge. The tunnels have also enhanced the 60's close-quarters handling, due to the pure propulsion of water directly onto the stainless-steel rudders. The cockpit comes with bait and tackle centers accessed via toe kicks, as is the double-wide freezer. An 80-inch fish box with mascerator pump is located in the cockpit sole, and a second fish box integrated into the transom can be plumbed as an optional livewell. With no exposed handles or hardware to catch fingers or chamois, this cockpit will keep the crew happy, as will the insulated drink storage in the cockpit steps and hidden quick-connect washdown connections. For the ultimate in fishing and cruising comfort, opt for the completely redesigned enclosed flybridge, with or without a circular staircase leading to the salon. This spacious compartment features a Tracy helm chair and two forward-facing riding seats. An L-shaped lounge is elevated for excellent visibility and includes rod storage underneath. A wet bar with refrigerator and icemaker makes entertaining easy, and a central vacuum eases the cleaning burden. The standard interior arrangement on the 60 Convertible calls for three staterooms and three heads. The master stateroom is a beam-width compartment complete with queen-sized berth, cedar-lined storage underneath, entertainment center, twin nightstands, his-and-her hanging lockers and several additional storage compartments for extended cruising.
