Hatteras Yachts has appointed Total Offshore Yacht Sales of Wilmington, N.C., to its network of sales representatives.

The company said the addition helps move it toward its goal of strengthening its presence in key fishing and cruising markets in the United States and the world.

"I am very excited to be back with Hatteras," Total Offshore Yacht Sales owner and president David Croom said in a statement.

Croom represented the company's yachts when he worked with a previous yacht dealership eight years ago.

"Hatteras builds the best boats for customers in our region, many of whom are active offshore yachtsmen or saltwater anglers,” Croom said. “The new Hatteras GT Series, in particular, has been very well received by our local sportfishing community.

Croom has been on the water since age 11, when he got his first job on a boat as mate. A Coast Guard-licensed captain at 19, he gained experience operating a range of vessels, including commercial vessels, sailboats, motoryachts and sportfishing boats. A passionate angler, he is a proud member of the Hatteras Marlin Club on Cape Hatteras.

"We are delighted to welcome David Croom of Total Offshore Yacht Sales, with his well-honed skills both as a yacht broker and as a captain, and his focus on excellent customer service, back to the Hatteras family," said John Ward, president and CEO of Hatteras/Cabo Yachts. "Total Offshore Yacht Sales is in the heart of Hatteras country, and its proximity to our factory is sure to make for very strong ties between us, the dealership and its clients."
