NY boat manufacturer making move to Queensbury

Posted:

TICONDEROGA, N.Y. (AP) - An upstate New York company that makes luxury mahogany motorboats is moving its manufacturing operations to a neighboring county after getting a $600,000 state grant.
    
Executives with the Hacker Boat Co. tell the Press-Republican of Plattsburgh that they'll use the funding to move from Ticonderoga on Lake George's northern end to an expanded facility about 35 miles south in the Warren County town of Queensbury.
    
The company says the 38 workers at the Ticonderoga operation will be offered a chance to transfer to the Queensbury plant that's expected to be built this year. Hacker Boat officials say the company will invest more than $5 million and create 31 new jobs at the Queensbury location.
    
The company also has offices, a showroom and marina at Silver Bay on Lake George.
