Hacker-Craft opens in South Florida


New York-based builder The Hacker Boat Company, builders of the Hacker-Craft all-mahogany boats, has opened a showroom in Dania Beach, Fla., for up to six boats, including, initially, the first Tommy Bahama Edition Hacker-Craft and a Neiman Marcus Edition Hacker-Craft.

“Having a showroom in the Yachting Capital of the World will make it easy for potential customers, from individuals to those seeking yacht tenders, to see our gorgeous boats up close,” said Bob Sheer, regional manager of Florida operations for the company.

President and CEO George Badcock said, “In the past two years we have sold more boats in Florida than in any other single market, so we decided to capitalize on that trend with the hopes of tapping into existing and future demand.”
