Hatters teams with Carolina Custom Towers

Hatteras Yachts has announced that Carolina Custom Towers is now the preferred tower fabricator for all new models from the boat manufacturer.

“Towers are an integral part of our Sport Fishing line of yachts, which help to define the style and utility of our products,” said Wade Watson, chief operating officer of Hatteras Yachts, in a statement. “This new supplier partnership will provide our customers more of the distinct Carolina quality and design heritage that Hatteras already offers with more customization flexibility. Carolina Custom Towers is a short drive from us here in New Bern, which will provide our operation shorter lead times and streamlined communication with the fabricators and engineers at CCT.”

Carolina Custom Towers together with its parent Shearline Boats bring over 25 years of Custom Boat and Tower experience. Chip King, president of CCT, commented, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Hatteras Yachts and excited about what the future holds for both companies. It’s an honor to be chosen to work with a company with such a rich history as leaders in our industry. With their deep roots in North Carolina and our shared passion for quality, the sky is the limit for this partnership.”
