Hatteras Yachts announced today the redesigned 80 Motor Yacht.

The new 80 MY retains key elements that have made it one of Hatteras' most successful motor yachts, but offers a new layout and additional standards and options, the company announced.

The relocation of the arch on the flybridge gives the 80 MY a rakish and sporty profile. Large portlights, centered between two horizontal portlights on each side, offer a change in styling, compared with the previously used vertical portlights. Also new to the exterior is a standard riding seat on the bow deck.

Side-by-side berths are now standard in lieu of bunks in the starboard stateroom and the crew area now features a new "lounge" layout.

The new feel within the 80 MY goes beyond layout, featuring aesthetic changes as well as appliance and amenity upgrades. Stone showers with frameless shower doors now come standard in the master and guest heads. New portlights have been added to the bow and starboard guest staterooms.

"There is no doubt that the general effect of the design change introduced aboard the 80 MY is greater than the sum of its parts," John Ward, Hatteras and Cabo Yachts senior vice president of global sales and marketing, said in a statement. "We are extremely excited to present the redesigned 80 Motor Yacht in both our current and developing markets."

Hatteras will debut the redesigned model at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which starts Thursday and runs through Monday.
