Oh my sweet Carolina - Gold Coast Bulletin admires the Hatteras GT54

A big thank you to Warren Steptoe at the Gold Coast Bulletin for a great article, admiring the design and advantages of the "Carolina-style" hull, currently winning hearts after being adapted and redefined in the Hatteras "GT" line. 

Warren spent some time around southern Moreton Bay's sandy shallows and into the Gold Coast Seaway in the Hatteras GT54, where he found that "The new GT series utilise the versatility of contemporary moulded composite construction to blend from the familiar bow shape to a variable deadrise angle which ensured the midships section of the hull maintains occupant-friendly ride characteristics; and an almost flat ransom at-rest stability.

"I can't think of too many other dedicated sportfishing boats which could (imaginably) be bought as pure cruisers, but that's certainly the case with this boat."
