The 70-foot Hatteras is listed among the “Best of the Best” in the Robb Report.

Hatteras Yachts said its new 70 Motor Yacht has made the Robb Report’s “Best of the Best” awards list for 2016 in the “Wings & Water, Yachts Up to 100 Feet” category in the magazine’s June issue.

“When Robb Report reviewed the new Hatteras 70 Motor Yacht in April it called the boat sexy, recognizing how we successfully transformed and elevated the look of our motoryacht series. Now the magazine has named the 70 Motor Yacht one of the Best of the Best,” Hatteras/Cabo Yachts president and CEO John Ward said in a statement. “We are honored and truly appreciate all the support that this authoritative publication has given to Hatteras.”

The 70 Motor Yacht’s four-stateroom plan, which includes a full-beam master suite and VIP suite and two guest staterooms, accommodates as many as eight guests.

“We knew the Hatteras 70 Motor Yacht was among the best of the best yachts in the world,” Ward said. “But it is very gratifying to have a prestigious brand like Robb Report acknowledge it in its iconic annual awards issue.”
