Hatteras Yachts names dealer for two Florida counties

MarineMax Stuart in Florida has been reinstated as the exclusive Hatteras Yachts dealer for Palm Beach and Martin counties.

Tom Sanders, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Hatteras, welcomed the return of Dan Aultman and Steve Gale to the area market that stretches from Boca Raton to Stuart.

“I am thrilled that MarineMax Stuart will be able to continue in the role of providing our Hatteras clientele with an exceptional total ownership experience,” Gale, general manager at MarineMax Stuart and vice president of Hatteras sales for MarineMax, said in a statement.

“MarineMax Stuart team is committed to fulfilling any client’s desire of owning their dream Hatteras yacht by applying our combined knowledge of yacht customization, contract facilitation, navigating the build processes, and most importantly, after-delivery support,” Gale said.

“MarineMax Stuart recently delivered hull No. 1 of Hatteras Yachts’ all-new 100-foot Raised Pilothouse Motor Yacht to a longtime client. This was our customer’s sixth Hatteras yacht, and the order, build, and delivery process was extremely smooth.”
