Shawn Dumas – Operations Manager

Shawn has worked in the marine industry in Southern Maine since the early 1980s’s. Learning from the ground up, he started as a yard worker at a family shop in Arundel then became a certified master technician. After transferring to Yankee Marina, he gained significant experience working with marine engines and complex vessel systems from small boats to sixty-foot yachts. In 2004, Shawn was hired on as an Outboard Technician at Yarmouth Boat Yard. Over the next 14 years, he grew through the ranks, learning all aspects of the business from sales and parts to service, and eventually became the General Manager. His expertise and understanding of customer needs coupled with his knowledge of boats and engines helped the company sustain significant growth.

The personal side of the business is the part Shawn enjoys the most. He understands that customers are relying on his work, and that of his team, to keep their friends and family safe when they go out on the water. He takes that responsibility to heart.

One of the many reasons Shawn is grateful for his position at Kennebunkport Marina is that he is closer to his family. His wife is the Director at GymNation in Kennebunk and his two children attend Thornton Academy.

Cathy Norton – Manager

Cathy grew up in nearby Portsmouth, N. H. spending summers enjoying boating at her parents’ camp on a freshwater lake. The first real family boat was a beautiful wooden Chris Craft that the whole family learned to operate and ski behind. That boat was the beginning of a long love of boats and boating. Despite a degree to teach English, Cathy’s career path always veered to being around boats and the boating community.

Just prior to Cathy coming to Kennebunkport Marina she had worked for the Maine Marine Trade Association in Maine. Although she loved the interaction with the various members of the industry throughout the state, the call of the water brought her to her current position as manager of the marina.

Cathy considers herself fortunate to have the best of all possible worlds, she comes to work every day to a beautiful view with great people and spends as much of her free time as possible with her too rapidly growing grandchildren.

Gary Mulsow grew up in Henniker, N. H. Gary spent the first 27 years of his career working his way up in the lumber and lumber equipment industry. During most of those years, he would spend time fishing and cruising around Kennebunkport.

In 2002 the opportunity presented itself for Gary to work for Kennebunkport Marina. Gary jumped at the chance to live and work in the area where he had spent so much time already enjoying the boating community.

Gary combines his friendly personality and his great understanding of equipment to safely move many a cherished boat through the congested areas of Kennebunkport.
