The 2018 Hatteras M90 Panacera, the newest build from the manufacturer, stands proud among the debut of notable luxury motoryachts from the 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (November 1 through 5). The design clearly has an emphasis on openness, from the exterior that lends itself to entertaining large groups to the interior’s generous accommodations. What’s more, the yacht was built right here in America at the Hatteras Yachts facility in New Bern, North Carolina.
The exterior layout is such that a guest will always have space to relax. A generous swim step aft blends easily into the covered seating area of the cockpit. One can venture to the foredeck easily along expansive and deeply seated walkways to find a large seating area around a table and lounge space. The flybridge is open with a outdoor galley that has cookout written all over it. The helm station and more seating is located forward in the flybridge and is covered with a hardtop in the standard version. An enclosed flybridge model is also available.
The interior nicely matches the theme of generous space and accommodations, and with 22’6” of beam, why not go all the way in terms of luxury? The four-stateroom layout also features dedicated captain and crew staterooms aft. The wraparound glass of the cabin not only lights up the interior, but also gives the yacht a modern sleek look. The yacht is powered by twin CAT C32A 1600-hpdiesel engines that provide as estimated 21- to 23-knot cruise at 2300 RPM. The M90 also is equipped with the latest technology that includes the proprietary HattCon Yacht Management System.
Overall, the 2018 Hatteras M90 Panacera looks like a fine new flagship to the
Hatteras lineup. If interested, check out hatterasyachts.com for more information. Contact local dealer Stan Miller Yachts (stanmilleryachts.com) for pricing.
