    It would be wonderful if new owners recognize the value the brand once had when the boats featured timeless designs. When they abandoned the influence and services of Jack Hargrave, N.A., the brand lost its luster, just trying to keep up with mainstream ‘Euro’. Classic lines will never go out of style and I hope that the future will point in this direction for Hatteras in the future.
