“Hatteras is the premiere U.S. manufacturer of luxury sportfishing convertibles and motoryachts in the 50- to 100-foot range,” says Brunswick chief George W. Buckley. “This acquisition will allow us to meet the needs of our boating customers who desire to move up in size and luxury.”
Buckley adds that there is no overlap in the product lines of other Brunswick builders Sea Ray, Bayliner, and Maxum. Hatteras will remain headquartered at its New Bern, North Carolina, facility and continue production of its 15 models.
