Hatteras Yachts will move its Hatteras Yacht Sales Center to the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six Hotel and Marina in Fort Lauderdale this fall.

The company will continue to operate the existing Hatteras/CABO Yacht Service Center at Billfish Marina in Fort Lauderdale.

"South Florida is America's sportfishing and motor yacht capital, so it's the ideal place for us to open our new Hatteras Yacht Sales Center to better serve our customers, prospects and dealers," Hatteras Yachts president and CEO John Ward said in a statement. "This is part of the continuing investment that our parent company, Versa Capital Management, is making in our company and operations."

The new sales center, which is scheduled to open in November, will be located in the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six Hotel facility overlooking the Pier Sixty-Six Marina. The new center includes premier dockage to showcase the company's yacht portfolio and features a VIP reception area for clients, as well as offices for Hatteras salespeople, dealers and support staff.

"We will have exciting new inventory on display at the Hatteras Yacht Sales Center when it opens this fall," said sales center manager John D'Agostino, who is overseeing the facility's buildout.
