The Wawasee Boat Co. of Syracuse, Ind., is now a representative for the Hacker-Craft brand.

Wawasee, founded in 1929, is on a 25-acre campus on the north shore of Lake Wawasee, Indiana's largest natural lake.

Wawasee said it has sold a 28-foot Triple Cockpit Runabout and a 27-foot Sport model since it became an authorized representative.

“We are delighted with our new relationship with Wawasee Boat Company, which has an excellent reputation in Indiana and beyond,” Hacker Craft Boat Co. CEO George Badcock said in a statement. “Our affiliation will enhance our brand’s visibility in Indiana, which is a market with real potential for us.”

“Lake Wawasee has had a huge wooden boat tradition since the 1920s,” said Doug Anderson, who co-owns Wasasee with his wife. “Original wooden boat manufacturers would actually test their boats on the lake. As a 40-plus-year dealer and marina on the lake, we feel our representing the Hacker-Craft brand is a great fit.”
