General Details

Classic Boat. 38 foot Hatteras 38C Sport Fish.The hull is a modified V, hard chine, planning form. The forward sections of the hull are quite V-shaped for easy entry and reduced pounding in choppy seas, giving way to less V-shape sections aft. This provides for more lift with out excessive horsepower. There is an integral keel that adds to strength of the hull as well as improving tracking, particularly at slower speeds.

All Hatteras Yachts are constructed of fiberglass, or more accurately, fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP). The hulls are laid up as a single piece in a female mold using various types of fiberglass cloth set in polyester resin. Longitudinal stringers are foam core molded FRP capped with metal plates where the engines are installed. The stringers are set in place before the final layer of fiberglass is laid-up which adds to the strength and reduces the chances of secondary bonding failures at the attachments. Full and partial plywood bulkheads are bonded to the hull with fiberglass cloth and polyester resin. The deck and hull are fastened together with adhesives and mechanical fasteners. The engineering of and the materials used for construction are all first rate; quality control is high which result in a very strong boat with no known problems aside from the normal wear and tear of age and service. Although not unique to Hatteras, one somewhat unusual feature of their construction is fuel tanks, water tanks and waste holding tanks of FRP construction. This eliminates the potential for corrosion and leaking welded and soldered joints associated with metal tanks and results in stronger more durable tanks than molded plastic.
