Hat­teras 90 MY

Power & Motor Yacht - - NEW BOATS - hat­terasy­achts.com —Capt. Bill Pike

At the Yachts Mi­ami Beach Show, I took a tour of the new (and sched­uled to launch later this sum­mer) Hat­teras 90 Mo­tor Yacht—what a trip! While more or less hold­ing sta­tion in phys­i­cal space, I checked out the whole whop­ping lay­out, from stem to stern, thanks to a set of Vir­tual Re­al­ity gog­gles, two videogame-type con­trollers, and a few friendly Hat­teras em­ploy­ees who kept me from walk­ing into very real walls. (Learn more about this 3-D ex­pe­ri­ence in Power & Tech­nol­ogy on page 22.) Let me hit you with some per­ti­nent de­tails. For starters, the 90’s bro­ken-sheer pro­file hews closely to those of the two sis­ter­ships al­ready in­hab­it­ing the Hat­teras big-boat line, the 70 Mo­tor Yacht and the 100 Raised Pilot­house. Then, too, she of­fers an ex­cep­tional ar­ray of cus­tom­iz­a­ble fea­tures, given the straight­for­ward­ness of her four-state­room-four-head en­ve­lope—ev­ery­thing from gal­ley lo­ca­tion on the main deck (for­ward or amid­ships) to an op­tion that in­stalls fold-down bal­conies in the bul­warks. And fi­nally, says Hat­teras, she’ll boast some im­pres­sive en­gi­neer­ing at­tributes, like a pow­er­ful 45-horse­power hy­draulic bow thruster, dou­ble-bot­tom in­te­grated fuel tanks, and (at 40 kilo­watts each) two equally sized gensets. And oh, the VR tour? Lemme tell ya—this baby’s gonna be bright, con­tem­po­rary, and el­e­gant. I know be­cause, vir­tu­ally speak­ing, I’ve been there.
