The 60 Motor Yacht incorporates original design concepts, a spacious interior and intuitive features that make this an ideal boat for the owner-operator. The 60 Motor Yacht features a wide-open salon/galley living area and a three-stateroom, two-head arrangement that includes a 130-square-foot full-beam master stateroom amidship, a VIP stateroom forward, and guest bunks to port. Priced competitively in the marketplace, the 60 Motor Yacht represents an entry-level product for the thousands of boat owners who aspire to own a Hatteras.
A Cut Above. The best place to take in the sights on the 60 is clearly the flybridge, where beautiful views, fresh air, and easy-going entertainment areas provide a brilliant backdrop for any cruise. The standard layout features a centerline helm with twin chairs and space for multiple flat-screen displays and navigational aids. Guests can spread out and socialize on big benches to port and to the stern. Add an optional davit and dinghy (up to 10 feet) on the aft overhang, or enhance this space with a mega-sized sun lounge and sun pad.
Dynamic Aft Deck. Down from the flybridge, the 135-square-foot aft deck is bigger than those found on many larger motor yachts. A molded, curved settee runs the length of the transom and provides quick access to the swim platform from either side. A second aft deck design eliminates the standard aft bulkhead and instead uses stainless-steel railings and tempered, laminated glass to encase the deck. This arrangement provides more usable space and allows for the installation of an optional passerelle and davit to facilitate Mediterranean-style mooring and dinghy storage on the swim platform.
User-Friendly Exterior. Side decks measuring almost 13 inches across make working the lines easy and safe on the 60. These side decks also provide access to a storage locker on the port side and lead all the way forward to a molded bench seat on the bow deck.
Solid Fiberglass Hull. Like all Hatteras models, the 60 is founded on a solid fiberglass bottom that includes sturdy support in key areas like the hull tunnel, shaft log, and strut locations. Divinycell coring is infused into the hull sides, decks, and superstructure to add stiffness and reduce weight. The hull also benefits from an advanced variable-deadrise design that utilizes large propeller tunnels to reduce draft and increase efficiency.
Scenic Salon. A three-panel glass door framed in stainless steel slides opens to allow entrance to the 60’s airy salon (the panels stack to port and create an extra large, patio-like portal to the aft deck). The salon itself features a large sofa opposite a smaller settee — perfect for casual conversation. A 36-inch flat-screen TV is mounted under the galley countertop, and oversized frameless windows provide an unobstructed, panoramic view of the horizon all around.
Galley & Country Kitchen. A single step up from the salon leads to the U-shaped galley and country kitchen. Highlights here include solid-surface countertops and backsplashes for long-lasting durability, as well as an upright refrigerator/freezer, two-burner cook top, convection/microwave oven, and stainless-steel sink. Custom cabinetry with a rich mahogany finish provides a luxury feel and loads of storage for food, silverware, and cookware. A large, circular dinette to port calls to mind a casual country kitchen typically found on larger yachts; it provides seating for six. For those who prefer a lower helm, one is available as an option in lieu of the country kitchen.
Full-Beam Master. Owners who plan to spend a lot of time aboard will definitely appreciate the full-beam master stateroom with tapered king-sized berth, vanity to starboard, and large atmospheric portlights. Cedar-lined hanging lockers and twin dressers provide abundant storage for traveling clothes and gear, and the 19-inch flat-screen TV and stereo speakers offer low-key entertainment after a long day. To port, a private head with solid-surface countertops also includes a shower or full-size tub with tempered glass sliding door, owner’s choice.
Hospitable Host. The 60 features two generous guest cabins, one in the bow and one to port, with a shared head on the starboard side. A spacious VIP stateroom forward features a tapered queen berth that lifts to reveal a cedar-lined storage compartment below. Another cedar-lined hanging locker and a pair of cabinets provide additional stowage for extended voyages. The remaining stateroom has twin crisscross bunks that are ideal for kids or crewmembers.
Enviable Engine Room. Whether entered through the aft deck hatch or the optional bustle door in the transom, the heart of the 60 lies in her spacious engine room. Overhead clearance is unbelievable, granting unhindered access to the standard twin Cummins QSM-11 diesel engines (705 hp) or the optional twin CAT C18 diesel engines (1,000 hp). The fuel tank, located close to the center of buoyancy, distributes weight evenly for improved performance and efficiency as fuel is consumed.
