“Service is the name of the game,” MJM’s Bob Johnstone said in a statement. “I’m delighted to welcome aboard someone of Guy’s talent and experience as a member of the MJM team as we expand operations in the new facility in Charlestown this spring and launch the exciting new MJM 50z in August.”

“In addition to applying his skills in servicing MJM Yachts owners, Guy will be responsible for developing and operating a ‘Best in Class’ service yard available to the owners of all yachts in New England waters wanting the advanced, custom technological expertise of the world’s most advanced production builder,” said Boston BoatWorks president Scott Smith.

Gauvin sits on the board of directors of the Workforce Partnership of Greater Rhode Island, the Rhode Island Marine Trades Association and the American Boat Builders & Repairers Association.
