The amenities and accommodations found aboard the 100 Raised Pilothouse are typically reserved for vessels much larger in size. She features the largest aft deck and salon in her class, and offers an optional on-deck master suite fit for royalty. Her exterior entertaining spaces are as abundant as the breath-taking views surrounding them. Enjoy the thrill of the adventure from the bow observation lounge, relax on the aft deck and enjoy the breeze, or sun yourself on the richly appointed flybridge. Inside, her luxury knows no end. Exotic hard woods, exquisite craftsmanship, stone countertops, and fine furnishings will have you convinced that this is Hatteras' finest yacht ever.
As you enter the 100 Raised Pilothouse from the main entryway found amidships on the starboard side, the first thing you notice is the open staircase heading up to the pilothouse and flybridge. Aft is the capacious salon and formal dining area. For those that entertain large groups, an optional oversized bar is available. Large windows reveal sweeping views to both port and starboard, and the aft salon doors open to combine the salon and aft deck social areas into one gigantic living space ready to entertain on a grand scale. Move forward and you are greeted by the large open space of the country-style galley. Equipped with full-size appliances, ample cold storage, a large dinette, and a working island with bar seating; the galley offers the amenities and luxury of home. The galley is also bathed in natural light, made possible by one of the most noticeable features of the new 100 Raised Pilothouse -- the large integrated skylight in the overhead. An optional five stateroom layout takes advantage of this feature by including it in the on-deck master suite.
Below deck, the new 100 Raised Pilothouse provides accommodations for eight in a four-stateroom, four-head layout. The full-beam master suite is truly opulent and well appointed. It sits amidships and features a his-and-hers head, and ample storage in large closet spaces. Portlights on each side bring in natural light, and the exquisitely crafted cabinetry provides the comfort and luxury you expect in a Hatteras. This private owner's retreat is fit for royalty. Heading forward, twin staterooms are located on either side of the companionway with each featuring its own head. At the bow lies the VIP suite. Entering from the same hallway as the rest of the berthing spaces, the VIP suite offers a luxurious private bathroom, a large closet and a full-size queen bed with storage beneath. Each stateroom features a premium A/V package that includes a flat-screen LED television, AM/FM radio with iPod® dock, Blue-ray® disc player and Bose® speakers.
The raised pilothouse, found a few steps above the main entrance just off the grand stairway, is truly something to behold. Designed to accommodate an elaborate electronics package, the helm console features multi-use monitors -- placing navigation, communication, and ship systems information at the captain's fingertips. Central is the Hatteras Monitoring System that uses touch-screen technology to oversee all ship's systems including RPM, oil pressure, engine diagnostics, fuel and water levels, bilge alarms and more. From the helm chair, the captain has the entire vessel at his fingertips. The pilothouse also includes an L-shaped lounge for guests or crew.
Up above is the immense flybridge. Here, you can enjoy a commanding 360-degree view of your favorite port of call while relaxing in either the sun or shade. The design team created an innovative line of modular furniture that allows the flybridge to be tailored to the specific needs of the owner. A luxurious al fresco dining suit, comfortable lounges, large wet bar and more are all available to create a truly unique outdoor space. The helm station found on the flybridge has two captain's chairs and can accommodate up to three monitors as well as the other system controls necessary to run the yacht. The aft deck of the flybridge can be equipped with a davit for a tender and water toys, or an extended furniture layout for more entertaining space. If the latter is chosen, the tender and water toys are located on a hydraulic lift attached to the swim platform.
An observation lounge lies at the bow and an additional dining area can be found on the aft deck under the protection of the flybridge overhang. It features a dinette that can seat up to eight guests, a premium AV system with a drop-down flat-screen LED television and integrated steps to the flybridge and swim platform. Designed with the consummate host in mind, this space can be combined with the salon by opening the large glass entry doors -- creating one large living/entertainment space.
A discrete stairwell just off the aft deck leads below to the crew spaces and engine room. If the pilothouse is the brains of the vessel, this is the heart. The immaculate engine room is home to twin CAT C32 ACERT diesel engines with an output of 1900 bhp each on all standard models. Owners with greater performance in mind can upgrade to twin MTU 16V2000 CR diesel engines rated at 2600 bhp. Systems are centrally located, and all hoses and electrical wiring are secured and labeled for easy access.
The crew space is located just aft of the engine room and can be entered from the aft deck stairwell or from the bustle door in the transom, making access convenient whether tied at the dock or underway. It includes a private stateroom for the captain, and a bunkroom for crew. Each has its own head. A shared galley is located off the companionway and is equipped with a microwave/convection oven, sink and refrigerator.
