While many seasoned yachters will praise the heritage of Italian shipyards, or the expertise of Dutch shipyards, or the innovation of British shipyards, there are many American yards constructing some of the best motor yachts on the market right now, like Hatteras Yachts. One of the leading US yacht builders, Hatteras has more than 60 years of expertise under its belt. Founded by Willis Slane in 1960, who sought to create a new type of fishing boat that was strong enough to withstand the waves off Cape Hatteras, the yard has expanded rapidly over the years. From the launch of its first vessel, the world’s first 41 foot fiberglass sport fishing yacht, Hatteras has gone on to introduce more innovative yachts, pioneering the revolutionary convex and modified-v hull. A benchmark of quality, luxury, and design, we list three of the top Hatteras models currently available for sale with FGI Yacht Group.
