Since 1908 some of the most prestigious hand crafted boats have been created by Hacker-Craft, located in America. Every Hacker-Craft boat is repeatedly sanded and varnished until it meets their high-quality standards of perfection. A bespoke wooden classic by Hacker-Craft would be the luxurious Sterling, Mahogany Hull. rsz_sterling The Sterling Mahogany Hull’s features range from floor vents, cover boards, red leather interiors, stylized hardware, dashboard instrumentation, 25 feet and 6 inches in length with a 6.2L Ilmor OPS engine. rsz_racer-gallery5-2z4fd0nbi8gh4sy8n8jgu8 The overall look of this high-speed boat is sleek and sophisticated due to its stylish steel bow and glossed Mahogany finish that glides across the water’s surface with ease. Its lush red leather seating contrasts with the beautiful mahogany wood that is used to create the shell of the boat.  rsz_racer-gallery2-2z4fczrnm6q5ogq4y68vls rsz_racer-gallery4-2z4fd0e9tne3kpghvi65mo Each Hacker-Craft boat can be custom tailored to the client’s needs and wishes or can be completely custom built for only them. rsz_sterling3 The Sterling got its name due to its mechanics by the Sterling Engine Company although this boat is named specifically after the Sterling company they still use their engines in many of their other boats such as the 1914 Gold Cup Racer. rsz_sterling4 rsz_sterling-flag For more information please go to www.hackerboat.com
