Brunswick Corporation has completed the sale of the Hatteras and Cabo brands of motoryachts and sportfishing convertibles to Navis HCY Acquisition, an affiliate of Versa Capital, which is based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“We are pleased to complete this process in a manner that will help maintain the legacy of the Hatteras and Cabo brands,” said Brunswick Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dustan E.
