American boat builder Hatteras/CABO Yachts announced on the opening day of the 2015 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show a new 90ft model as part of their existing Yacht line. The new stylish and contemporary Hatteras 90 Motor Yacht will comfortably fall in between the 100 Raised Pilothouse and 70 Motor Yacht models, increasing the yacht line's appeal to more clients.
“We are expanding our Motor Yacht series in order to let our customers choose from a larger portfolio to meet their individual needs,” said John W.S. Ward, president & CEO of the company. “These are semi-custom yachts that give owners a wider range of opportunities for personalization. In addition, we will offer the Hatteras 90 Motor Yacht in both Open and Enclosed Flybridge versions.”
With the new 90 Motor Yacht, Hatteras will continue in their field of expertise to construct vessels suing resin-infused fibreglass. Space and weight savings come not only form using this material, but also from innovations such as a single integrated fuel tank as apposed to a many separate units.
From an exterior point of view, the new model will feature a flush main deck and come with two options on the sundeck; either an open flybridge with large outdoor entertaining area, or an enclosed space for a more protected ambience and increased interior volume. The four guest staterooms are all located on the lower deck with an aft master and forward VIP separated by two twin cabins.
Below the waterline, deep hull tunnels allow for raised shafts and in turn, a shallow draft of under five feet. She is available with Caterpillar or MTU diesel engines ranging from 1,600 to 1,920 hp.
The first hull is expected to be debuted at the 2017 Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show.
