It’s pretty impressive that the upper, bridge helm on the Hatteras 100 RPH, which debuted at the 2013 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show, made this list, considering it’s not even the primary helm onboard the boat. But we’re infatuated with the idea of adding a topside helm, with its attendant controls and electronics, because it means the boat will be used for cruising rather than just as a party platform. And of course, there’s another seriously accoutered helm down below, good for inclement weather or just a nice dollop of privacy.
Sure you catch a few fish. And your cockpit team does the job as well as any you’ve ever seen. Maybe it’s time to put your boat up against the best in the world on the fishing tournament circuit. See how to do it here. ▶
