Hatteras Yachts adds dealers in Turkey and Japan

Hatteras said the addition of these dealers to its network strengthens its presence in the key markets.

Hatteras Yachts said Yasuda Shipyard Co. Ltd. in Tokyo and Tatari Yachts S.A. in Istanbul will represent Hatteras in Japan and Turkey.

Hatteras said the addition of these dealers to its network strengthens its presence in the key markets and continues to increase its global distribution footprint.

"We are excited to have both Yasuda and Tatari focus their efforts on representation of the Hatteras brand in areas that have witnessed increased momentum in recent years," Hatteras Yachts president and CEO John Ward said in a statement.

"Individuals from these regions who invest in luxury items that are most commonly valued for their heritage and aesthetic appeal often desire the quality of American-made boats,” Ward said. “Performance, craftsmanship and durability are guaranteed facets in the purchase of every Hatteras yacht."

"We feel very honored to represent Hatteras, a symbol of American history,” Yasuda Shipyard owner Takayuki Nozawa said. "We are sure we can convey the charm of Hatteras to our customers and strengthen the Hatteras brand name throughout Japan."
