Hacker Boat Co. Relocates

Publish date:

Hacker Boat Co. relocated its corporate offices to Queensbury, N.Y., in the Lake George region, the company announced. Production and restoration operations will follow this spring.

“The more convenient location will make it easier for prospective customers to view and discuss purchasing a Hacker-Craft,” president and CEO George Badcock said in the statement.

Hacker said the new facility is 40 percent larger than its existing facility, which will allow the builder to increase production for anticipated new markets in Europe and the Middle East, as well as expanding restoration operations.


Hacker said it is recruiting for manufacturing positions.

The company also plans to add a showroom and ship’s store at the new site. Morgan Marine, the company’s Lake George waterfront facility, will remain in Silver Bay, N.Y.
