Hatteras Yachts expands partnership with Italian distributor

Hatteras Yachts is partnering with SNO Yachts to establish Hatteras Yachts Europe to distribute Hatteras boats in Europe.

Italy-based SNO Yachts is already the Hatteras dealer for Italy, France and Monte Carlo.

"We are very happy for the trust that Hatteras grants us,” SNO Yachts president Andrea Pirro said in a statement. “This is the natural evolution of a long relationship, not only with the extension of the geographical area of dealership, but especially for the establishment of the Hatteras Yachts Europe brand. This partnership will allow us to be the official voice of Hatteras in 32 European countries, providing customer service and an exclusive and direct contact with the American shipyard. Representing this important brand for such a vast territory is an exceptional recognition which provides us with new incentives to improve our work, and we look forward to develop new projects.”

Hatteras is in the market with two lines: the GT Convertible and the motoryacht line. The latest is the 100 RPH MY. In addition, with the collaboration of Hatteras, the Hatteras GT63 will be imported for the first time in Europe and it will be presented at the Cannes and Genoa boat shows in 2014.

"We are proud to strengthen this commercial agreement with SNO Yachts, based on mutual trust and respect since many years,” Hatteras president John Ward said. “SNO Yachts is an important partner for us, and a significant way to show our appreciation will be the degree of independence with which the brand Hatteras Yachts Europe will be promoted. We are sure that we will, as always, be represented at best, and this will lead to achieve new and extraordinary results, both economical and in terms of customer satisfaction."
