The Hatteras 100 RPH is a 102-foot raised pilothouse motoryacht launched by the North Carolina-based brand in 2013. With a sleek, modern profile devised by Venetian designer Enrico Gobbi, this is a stunning, elegant yacht, but don’t let that fool you: the 100 RPH is built for serious users who place a premium on functionality as well as form. With an immense flybridge, spacious main deck saloon, country kitchen, and 4 luxurious staterooms and 2 crew quarters, this Hatteras yacht is perfect for entertaining friends and family in style and comfort. A large water and fuel capacity make this yacht highly versatile, capable of being used as a sedate dayboat or venturing out on more long-range adventures.
The standout feature of the 100 RPH is the flybridge and raised pilothouse. Slick, rounded contours allow you to wander the flybridge safely and comfortably, while angled windshields and side windows nearly wrap around the whole of the main deck. The long deck is spacious enough to carry tender near the stern, with more than enough room for extensive seating and entertaining areas, including three chaise longues, a full bar, and dining table toward the bow sheltered beneath the hardtop. At the helm are two chair with a double-wide seat to starboard, which means up to four people can face forward at a time. The helmstation itself is large and serene, with joysticks and stern thrusters close to hand.
The raised pilothouse was built with the captain in mind, a discreet and private sanctuary from the rest of the boat that is located between the main deck salon and dining area and the forward galley. An L-shaped sofa and table are perfect for charting or lounging, while a day head is easily accessible beneath the pilothouse.
The main deck salon is a sumptuous mix of dark woods and rich fabrics balanced by lighter beige accents. A built-in L-shaped settee curves around a smooth glossy coffee table, with two additional armchairs. Features include a wet bar and travertine (or optional granite) decking next to an aft door. An amidships formal dining room with a sociable square table seats up to six, while a large and highly functional country kitchen is located forward with ample seating for guests or crew. The kitchen features a Jenn-Air stovetop and oven that seamlessly fits into the corner, maximizing the space, while a full-sized upright refrigerator provides ample room for your provisions. An island bar seats four people, ideal for both food prep and late-night revelry. In the middle of this space is a trapezoidal skylight which imparts an airy, breathable sensibility.
The accommodation aboard this yacht is plush and hospitable, sleeping up to eight guests across a full-beam master stateroom, a VIP guest room, and two twin cabins on the lower deck. An optional fifth master suite is also available on the main deck but is not offered as standard. Unlike many yachts, the 100 RPH allows guests to take warm, long showers, with an 820-gallon water capacity for showers, washing machines, and dishwashers.
Standard twin 1,900hp caterpillar C-32 diesel engines provide a top speed of 25 knots with a cruising speed of 19 nots. The engine room itself is worth noting, with 6.6-feet of headroom, a sure relief to any captain. The 100 RPH also has an impressive tankage, larger than nearly any motoryacht in its class, with 4,660-gallon fuel capacity across four tanks. An additional day tank is also provided, as well as 820 gallons of freshwater capacity – twice the capacity of an average yacht in this class. This means that the boat can run from morning to night, gaining hundreds of miles in the process.
