Project: Hatteras 90 Motor Yacht

Hatteras President John W. S. Ward announced a brand new model during a press conference at the 2015 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show: the 90 Motor Yacht. This stylish, contemporary yacht is designed to be consistent with the other models in the builder’s Motor Yacht line, including the Hatteras 100 Raised Pilothouse and the 70 Motor Yacht. The 90 Motor Yacht has a flush main deck with a flexible interior arrangement. The layout places the galley forward along with a casual seating and dining area, while the formal dining table and salon lie aft. An optional arrangement moves the galley to amidships and the dining table aft, creating a unique salon forward that benefits from the extra privacy afforded by this location.The main deck windows are large and frame-less, maximizing views of the water around the yacht. The Hatteras design team also created optional fold-out balconies for the main deck that are incorporated into the bulwarks, offering guests a further connection between vessel and sea.  The lower-deck guest area has four staterooms, all with en suite heads, accommodating eight guests in comfort and privacy. The crew quarters, aft of the engine room, can be accessed from the yacht’s transom and also from a discrete door on the aft deck. Outdoor entertaining is maximized on the 90 Motor Yacht, which has a large aft deck settee and dining table. The foredeck also holds a settee, cocktail table and a large sun pad; an optional layout includes fore and aft-facing benches served by a table. When it comes to entertaining guests, the expansive flybridge on the 90 Motor Yacht also is sure to be a popular spot. In addition to the fully equipped helm station, which is shaded by a hardtop on the Open version, the flybridge holds a dining table for eight, a long settee and a bar.  The new 90 Motor Yacht is scheduled to debut at the 2017 Miami boat show.
