Shown in Picture: Kichler 56" Hatteras Bay Flushmounted Ceiling Fan Model 300018OBB-FLUSH in Oil Brushed Bronze with Reversible Cherry/Walnut blades. The light fixture comes with this fan... Single light fixture with fresnel lens glass.. The fixture uses 4-40 Watt E-12 Krypton/T3. The 56" Hatteras Bay Flushmounted is a Ceiling Huggers Nautical style Ceiling Fan Designed for use Indoors Only. This fan features a 188mm x 25mm Motor with a 14 Degree Blade Pitch producing an AirFlow rating of 4 (where 5 is best). It is operated by a 3 Speed Remote Control. Other types of controls are also available.

The Hatteras Bay is the Swashbucklers dream when it comes to Nautical style ceiling fans; it screams Nautical from stem to stern; worthy of the captains quarters. Few ceiling fans capture the essence of Nautical style as does the Hattaras Bay. This particular model is rated for use indoors only, but if you need a similar fan for use outdoors, be sure to take a look at the sister ship called the Hattaras Bay Patio. Can be installed with the nautical style downrod assembly or flush mounted directly to the ceiling canopy.

Included Control: 3-speed CoolTouch hand held remote control. Comes with a wall holster that holds the remote transmitter allowing it to be used as a wall control or hand held remote control. Provides 3 speeds in forward and reverse with a full range light dimmer.

UL Listed for Indoor use only: The Kichler 56" Hatteras Bay Flush is UL Listed for Indoor use only, so it is not designed to be exposed to moisture or harsh elements. Do not install this fan outside your house. It is also not recommended for bathrooms that have a shower or tub or laundry rooms, both of which produce excessive amounts of moisture.


Minimum Ceiling Height Requirement: Building codes require residential ceiling fans to be installed with the blades at least 7 feet from the floor. In order to meet this requirement, this fan requires a minimum ceiling height of at least 91.25". If your ceiling is lower than 91.25" then you may need to add a flushmount adapter or close to ceiling downrod if one is available for the fan (see below). The light fixture that comes with the fan is allowed to be less than 7 feet from the floor, so just make sure you have enough headroom to walk under it if need be. If you cannot find what you need to make this fan work in your room, please give us a call 1-800-201-1193 so we can check to see if there are any further alternatives.

How long of a downrod do I need?

The downrod included with the Kichler 56" Hatteras Bay Flush ceiling fan is 12", which puts the blades 7" from the ceiling. Here are the Minimum Ceiling Heights required for each downrod available for this fan. Each length will put the fan blades 7 feet from the floor, so if you want your fan blades higher than 7 feet, choose a shorter downrod to fit your needs.

How the above calculations are performed

To calculate the length of downrod that you need to get as close to 7 feet from the floor as possible (but not lower), first you must look at the dimensions of the fan to determine how far from the ceiling the blades will hang using the standard mounting hardware. In most cases, the hardware that a ceiling fan ships with is all you need for an 8 or 9 foot high ceiling...but be sure to double check the distance a fan hangs from the ceiling because some fans hang down more than 18" and will require at least a 9 or 10 foot ceiling.

Once you know how far the fan hangs with the standard mounting hardware you can calculate how far it will hang with a longer downrod by subtracting the length of the standard downrod from the length of a longer downrod. Add that length to the distance the fan normally hangs from the ceiling to determine how far down your fan will hang with any particular downrod length. If you do not know the length of the downrod that is included with you can figure that 4" is about average.

How does the Kichler 56" Hatteras Bay Flush Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?

Note The Editor's Review is based on the latest product specifications and performance data we have in our database directly from the manufacturer. We take this information and convert it into laymans terms to give you an idea of what you can expect from the fan. Actual performance may vary depending on the circumstances of your application such as room size, ceiling height, blade selection and climate.

Quality Rating = 5 (average is 3)
With a Quality Rating of 5, the Kichler 56" Hatteras Bay Flush is among the finest quality ceiling fans made. It will run smooth and quiet without wobbling or making noise and you can let it run 24 hours a day for years on end without any worries of the motor burning out.

Wind Speed Factor: 2.81 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 2.81 MPH gives this fan a Breeze Rating of 3 out of 5. This is rather average when it comes to ceiling fans, so you will feel some cooling breeze, but don't expect the 56" Hatteras Bay Flushmounted to blow your socks off. Aside from Quality, which accounts for smooth quiet operation and durability, the amount of wind-chill a fan can provide to cool you off is the most important consideration.

Airflow = 5515 CFM (average is about 5,000)
5515 CFM is pretty much average, so don't expect a super strong breeze from this fan. However, most people are used to average ceiling fans, so if you have never experienced a fan more powerful than this, you may be satisfied with the Kichler 56" Hatteras Bay Flush. The 2.81 MPH wind speed is a little lower than you might expect with such a high airflow. The wind speed tells you how much breeze you can expect to feel when you are beneath the fan. Due to the blade span of this fan, the actual concentration of airflow is spread over a larger area, so the ultimate cooling effect is a little less than some fans with smaller blade spans. This is a compromise that you may be willing to accept if the actual area where you spend your time is further away from the center of the fan, which is why you may consider a larger fan such as this one. In this case the Kichler 56" Hatteras Bay Flush will allow you to raise your thermostat by 1 or 2 degrees, which will still help you save additional money on your cooling bills (if you have AC).

Efficiency Rating = 69 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 69 is below average. Efficiency is defined by the EPA as the amount of airflow a fan produces (CFM) divided by the amount of electricity (Watts) it uses on high speed without any lights on. Efficiency is less important than Airflow because more CFMs allow you to raise your thermostat higher...which is where you will save the most energy. Efficiency becomes more important if you expect to operate several ceiling fans at the same time. (see calculator below)

Wind Speed Factor -vs- Efficiency: Wind Speed is KING! Ceiling fans can save you a lot on your energy bills if you use them properly to reduce your use of central air. Ceiling fans cool you off by creating a wind-chill effect, so the more wind speed a fan generates, the cooler it will make you feel. The cooler your ceiling fan can make you feel, the higher you can raise your AC thermostat to conserve energy without sacrificing your level of comfort. Raising your thermostat by 10 degrees can save you up to 40% on your cooling bills, but you cannot raise your thermostat by 10 degrees if you focus only on ceiling fans that use less energy rather than ones that generate higher wind speed. To put this in perspective: A typical central air system uses about 3500 Watts when it is running, so if a ceiling fan that uses 100 watts allows you to raise your thermostat a couple degrees higher than a more "efficient" fan that uses only 50 watts, the savings you will get by raising your AC thermostat a couple degrees higher is far more than the difference of 50 watts between the two fans. With that said, a ceiling fan that uses less watts yet produces higher wind speed is a win-win.

I like the flush mount Hatteras fan as pictured , why does it show an option to purchase a flush mount accessory for 24$ isn’t all pieces included in the fan ?
Deborah L on May 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Deborah,

The flush mount adapter is not packaged in the box with the fan from Kichler, it is in fact sold separately. We are the only website that actually shows how the flush mount option looks on this fan and it really makes an incredible hugger fan when you add the flush mount adapter. We add the adapter in the configuration so that you know you are getting exactly what is shown in the picture.

Here is a link to the fan pictured without the flush mount adapter. I think you will agree that had we not pictured it with the flush mount adapter option, you may have never considered it for a flush mount application:
