Game & Leisure Boats welcomes new Hatteras GT 54

12 - GT54 Running Creating Demand
Gold Coast based Game & Leisure Boats is extremely excited to announce the arrival of a new Hatteras GT 54 into Australia, the first in a series of exciting announcements for one of Australia’s most experienced game fishing and motor yacht retailers.

The first GT 54 has been delivered to a couple from Brisbane with a second boat to arrive in January, which will then make its way to the majestic waters of Madang in Papua New Guinea. Both owners were special guests at an exclusive launch function on the Gold Coast last week.



The new GT 54 is the lightest and most nimble member of the Hatteras GT Series and designed for the serious angler or comfortable family cruising. The look of the GT 54 is based on a traditional sport fishing convertible with updated and refined lines. The striking bow flare is dramatic and the long foredeck is carefully balanced against the low deckhouse. One of the most elegant elements of her styling is the tumblehome aft, a unique feature seen throughout the GT models.

While the look above the waterline is new for Hatteras in a boat of this size, the shape below is a Hatteras in the purest sense. Hatteras was the first builder to employ a convex bow on a variable deadrise hull to minimise the impact of seas in a variety of offshore conditions. The design of the GT 54 is based on this proven construction, producing a comfortable ride and excellent performance in rough waters, and like all models in the GT Series she boasts an impressive top-end speed exceeding 40 knots.

When it comes to fishability, the well-appointed cockpit of the GT 54 is equipped to meet the standards of the most competitive angler. The GT 54 features in-deck fish boxes, a mounting plate for a fighting chair in the sole and an optional re-circulating live well at the transom. Stowage is excellent, with dedicated compartments for gaffs and boat hooks as well as accommodations for rods.



Game & Leisure Boats Managing Director and very accomplished big boat skipper Graham McCloy isn’t surprised at the market acceptance of this new model and this is probably reflected by his comment that 'This is by far the best sport fishing boat I have ever driven'.

2013 is shaping up to be a big year for Hatteras and Game & Leisure Boats with the arrival of a stunning new Hatteras 60 Motor Yacht in time for Sydney International Boat Show. The 60 Motor Yacht features a wide-open saloon/galley living area and a three-stateroom, two-head arrangement that includes a full-beam master stateroom amidships. The new Hatteras 60 Motor Yacht will definitely make a statement on the waterways of Australia, and is competitively priced for the market.
