Hatteras Yachts Closing Swansboro Facility

By  | 

About 200 jobs will soon be gone from the town of Swansboro.

Hatteras Yachts is closing it's Onslow County plant in a few months. Company officials say they'll gradually shift production to a larger New Bern plant in order to take advantage of economic gains.

Some current employees will either have the option to work at the New Bern plant or near
Wilmington at a plant the company recently opened there.

Governor Mike Easley has sent a rapid response team to help the Hatteras workers find new jobs or receive additional training to land another job.
