Hatteras Yachts in New Bern is closing down for six weeks this summer, leaving hundreds without work.
Normally, Hatteras shuts down the plant for a week around July Fourth.
This year, they have alerted employees they are shutting down the plant from July through the middle of August. It's a six-week furlough, which means the employees will not be paid.
Some employees will be called in to work off and on so they can fill orders. There's no word on how many employees that impacts.
Hatteras laid off 325 people in August 2008, and another 330 in January of this year. Roughly 300 people are still employed at the New Bern boat company.
