This Hatteras 55′ Convertible, located in Maryland, was experiencing leaking boat windows and corrosion and pitting on the old aluminum frames. The corrosion was most likely the culprit, but we’ve seen leaking windows in the past that has resulted from a combination of corroding aluminum frames and deteriorating rubber seals. For this Hatteras owner, the choice was made to replace the windows with fiberglass frames instead of repeating the problem with restored or new aluminum frames, that will eventually lead to the same leaky problem.
The customer decided to make a few changes, which we were happy to accommodate. The design of the Aft Salon window was customized with a curve and enlarged. The Hatteras also received all new port lights. The installer, Tony (call for contact information) was extremely satisfied with the windows and the easy installation process. The customer was satisfied with the new windows and the new look. You can see the installation process in the pictures.
This 1974 model Hatteras recently had the boat windshields replaced with our fiberglass replacement boat window frames and glass. The original boat windshields were made from aluminum frames with plexi-glass, due to the curve of the windshield. The windows were leaking and the plexi-glass was aged with visible crazing.
Our ability to bend glass allowed us to replace the windshields with custom curved glass made from laminated safety glass. In this particular application, the customer selected tinted glass.

A Hatteras Motor Yacht has an updated look with corrosion free fiberglass replacement boat windows. These boat windows were installed by the owner with the help of our “How to Install” video series .
The windows that were replaced in this phase of restoration included:
Front Boat Windshields
Pilot House Windows
As you can see in these pictures, the paint line from the previous aluminum windows is not visible. Although this boat is slated for a paint job, if a boat’s paint is in good condition, there is no need to paint the boat after installing Lookout Boat Window Frames. We design our frames to make your installation as simple and cost effective as possible.

The owner of this 46′ Hatteras was interested in replacing the side boat windows only. This job was completed after the customer selected the frame paint color and glass tint. Shortly thereafter, the boat windows were shipped to Puerto Rico.
