The Hacker Boat Co. said it sold nine boats during the second quarter this year, compared with three sales in the same period last year.

Company CEO George Badcock said that “in addition to fulfilling these new and pre-owned orders, we have several potential new builds in process.

We also are in the final stages of an industry alliance which should prove beneficial and which we will announce when the arrangements are complete.”
