The Hatteras M90 can be purchased with several varieties of cryptocurrencies.

Denison announced to clients it is accepting Bitcoin at this year's Miami Yacht Show, which wraps up today, for all new boats, including Hatteras, Beneteau and Fountaine Pajot.

The company has recently sold three yachts to clients that converted Bitcoin to purchase brokerage yachts, and recently facilitated a yacht charter for a Bitcoin client.

The newly launched Hatteras M90 is included in a selection of yachts that can purchased using a number of cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and Tron. The Hatteras display is located on Collins Avenue.

At time of this release, the M90 could be purchased for around 900 BTC. Of course, this amount may change depending on currency exchange rates.

"Accepting Bitcoin isn't a marketing gimmick. Our team works hard to make buying yachts as easy as possible for our clients. This is just one of those ways," said Bob Denison in a statement. "I'm personally active in using Bitcoin to buy and sell things and enjoy the process a ton. Our company is ready to make this fun and easy for anyone looking to buy a boat with BTC.”
