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.
