North Carolina-based shipyard Hatteras has just introduced its most recent motor yacht, the Panacera M90, at this year’s Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The Panacera M90 features a design which departs somewhat from the expected, in that it favors accessibility of layout, an unpretentious overall sense of style, and a socially central galley awash in natural light. Its design vision is, for an American luxury motor yacht, avant-garde, eschewing many of the traditional trappings of yacht interiors for openness and a sense of community.
Even a quick look at the photos of the Panacera M90 will tell a viewer that light is of the essence in the design; a wall of windows extends along the cabin, with a large skylight defining the roofline, and allowing for an intoxicating sense of space in the galley.
A look inside will tell a viewer that Hatteras’ interior designer is very good at suggesting a sense of elegance and style, rather than opting for the typically heavy-handed delivery. Off-white, gracefully curving lines, rosewood veneer for trim, walls, cabinetry, and window surrounds, a judicious use of marble, and plank hardwood floors combine with the abundant natural light for a living style which is effortless and easygoing. The rosewood’s texture acts as a motif, connecting the varied spaces with a cohesive, naturally occurring pattern.
The Panacera M90 features four staterooms, as well as captain’s and crew’s quarters. It is powered by a pair of 1600 HP CAT diesels.
A strikingly designed U.S.-made yacht, and absolutely worth a look to the discriminating buyer.
