Hacker Boat Company is the largest American manufacturer of classic mahogany motorboats. Since the 1930s they have have been hailed as the “Steinway of Runabouts” and were named by “Forbes Magazine FYI” as being “50 of America’s Best” products.
Each and every vessel is hand built by master boat building craftsmen who labour over 1500 hours to build every single boat. The company builds runabouts, sport boats, yacht tenders, launches and utilities from 7.3 to 10.7 metres in length.
Now the company has built a 10 metre tender for the 73 metre yacht Nobiskrug built Odessa II.
“This is a new design for us, one that speaks to the needs of the mega yacht industry,” said George Badcock, president and CEO of the company. “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to build the tender for a yacht as large and beautiful as Odessa II. We are now working on potential tenders for several other yachts, and look forward to growing our tender business.”
