Hatteras Cabo Yachts in New Bern lays off 23
NEW BERN, Craven County - Hatteras Cabo Yachts in New Bern had a round of layoffs on Friday.
According to Joe Cacopardo, a spokesperson for the company, 23 employees were laid off. Cacopardo said the layoffs are a direct result of a recent overall decrease in the large motor yacht market. He added the company is holding an event in September to bring 100 high-potential customers to New Bern for the premier of the company's new 90 motor yacht. The company expects the current market softness to be temporary and hope to see growth going forward.
