At the recently concluded Yachts Miami Beach show, Hatteras announced that the construction of their first Hatteras 90 Motor Yacht is proceeding on schedule, and will be ready for its planned summer 2017 launch!
Visitors to the popular Miami Beach yachting event, which was held February 16th – 20th, were treated to a fully immersive, virtual reality tour of the latest model in the yacht makers “raised pilot house” series.
The new Hatteras 90 Motor Yacht, was designed to fill a niche between the Hatteras 70, and the Hatteras 100 Raised Pilot House, both of which share similar profiles.
The Hatteras 100, which was launched in 2013, was one of the first to combine Hatteras’ classic American lines with a European interior, designed by Italian yacht designers with the Enrico Gobbi’s Team for Design. The Hatteras 70 took off, where the 100 began.
The Hatteras 90 will be available in both open and enclosed flybridge versions and will benefit from Hatteras’ resin-infused fiberglass construction technology, “which ensures the hull has the ideal strength-to-weight ratio.” She will also include a relatively new, and popular innovation from Hatteras, a fuel tank that is integrated into the hull rather than being a separate unit, which provides greater fuel storage as well as weight savings.
Other Unique Features of the Hatteras 90
According to Hatteras, the 90 is a “stunning open-concept yacht that features a crisp, light-filled interior which strikes a perfect balance of dramatic form and ingenious function. The 90 incorporates an inspiring range of global design influences to create new uses of living, dining and entertaining spaces.” Her unique features include signature skylights as well as a sweeping staircase to an expansive bridge. An amazing synergy is created between the interior and exterior spaces, which include a modular bar on the aft deck and ample lounging space on the side decks and bow. The impact of the massive 22’6″ beam is felt throughout, including in the four luxurious staterooms.
She will be powered by a pair of 1,600hp Caterpillar C32 ACERT engines.
If all goes according to plan, Hatteras says rather than a “virtual tour,” visitors to the 2017 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat show coming this November, will be able to see the new Hatteras 90 on display.
