History of Hatteras
Exhibiting an undying commitment to innovation and quality for over three decades, Hatteras Hammocks is one of the most sought after producer of hammocks in the nation. And with good reason. A handy and entrepreneurial founder, Walter R. Perkins, Jr., began by selling hammocks on the beach that were markedly better than what was commercially available at the time.
It didn't take long, in terms of business growth, for Hatteras Hammocks to become the most reputable manufacturer of hammocks in the world. After 16 years, in 1987, Perkins was being awarded regularly for his commitment to quality and entrepreneurial spirit by both regional and state business organizations.
A little about the hammocks
But that doesn't begin to actually describe the Hammock, something that can really only be articulated by the durable and soft fibers of his products and the safety that they are known for. Their classic rope hammock features 3-ply, cotton wound rope with solid oak spreader bars. Prior to Hatteras Hammocks, the common style of hammock didn't feature the "spreader bar," making lying in a hammock a comfortable affair, but hardly functional in terms of reading or sipping lemonade.
And since Hatteras offers a huge variety, you can get hammocks regardless of your budget or style. For those seeking the best, there is a gorgeous, solid cypress frame with a curved support worthy of the most discriminating architectural eye. But since solid wood supports are naturally going to exclude some consumers, Hatteras produces an equally sturdy, metal tube frame that will blend into your landscape and last for decades.
A reputation you can rely on
Overall, Hatteras, more than any other manufacturer, can offer the variety of materials, styles, and prices that are indicative of a reliable, worldwide corporation at the top of its game. Whatever your tastes, we recommend seriously considering a Hatteras Hammock.
