Kurt Gagnon - President

Kurt Gagnon

President
Kurt loves the business and has over 40 years experience! Bev and Don would bring Kurt to work every day. Bev said that he was great, put him in a boat with his toys and he would stay there all day! Don had Kurt building trailers for the business at the age of 13. By the time Kurt has 15 he had earned his way up the ladder to mechanic. Kurt gathered a huge amount of knowledge from Don and Bumper (John Gagnon)! Kurt went to his first outboard school in 1978 and has stayed certified ever since. Upon graduating from College in 1984 with a degree in Business Management Kurt joined his Dad as Service Manager. Don was very proud to have Kurt on board. Kurt brought new ideas to the business. The biggest was to build the largest showroom in central maine. In October of 1987 the two did just that. It was beautiful but Don had a terrible accident in the spring of 1988, falling from our new building he suffered a closed head injury. This forced Kurt into the roll of General Manager. Kurt had some big shoes to fill but because he had worked so close with Don it was a bit easier. Kurt purchased the business from Dad and Mom in September of 2008! Kurt is always updating his knowledge, he is an Evinrude Sales Pro, Ranger Advantage Tour Pro, Crownline Sales and Service plus Crownline customer service pro, Starcraft trained in sales and customer service, Mercury product knowledge training, Tohatsu service specialist, certified boating safety courses and holds certifications with BRP(Evinrude), Mercruiser, Volvo Penta and Tohatsu. Stop by and say hello to Kurt!

Bill Brackett

Bill purchased his first boat from Gagnon's in 1998. Him and his wife Laura fell in love with the Maxum 1750 beautiful Red boat. As the relationship grew Bill upgraded his Maxum to a bigger boat in 2000. He purchased a 1900 SR3 Maxum and that summer Bill and Laura spent many evenings on the lakes enjoying their boat. Bill and his love of boating is what brings him to our sales staff. Our relationship with Bill and Laura started out as customers but as Bill worked shows with us and would come up to the shop on weekends it is clear that Bill and Laura are part of the Gagnon Family. Included in the family is Bill's son Billy. Bill sold his son Billy his Miro craft 1616 with a troller and a 40 hp E-Tec in 2008. Bill enjoys fishing, boating and helps Kurt test drive new boats. Bill is willing to help you purchase your new boat with his first hand knownledge of boating and his expertise he can get you into the right boat weather it be fishing, skiing or cruising on a pontoon boat!
