Changing places

Prentice Weathers has joined the sales team at Morris Yachts in Bass Harbor, Maine.

“As the demand for Morris Yachts and our line continues to grow, it is important to grow our sales force as well,” said Cuyler Morris, president of Morris Yachts, in a statement. “Prent’s experience in our market, his extensive sailing experience, and his personality make him a perfect fit for us.”

A 25-year marine industry veteran, Weathers started his career in 1983 as a production manager at Navtec, responsible for all manufacturing production, inventory control and cost accounting for the rigging and hydraulic systems company. After two years, he was promoted to custom sales manager, managing worldwide sales to builders, distributors, project managers and owners of premier racing and cruising yachts.

After working with Bill Koch’s victorious America3 America’s Cup syndicate as hydraulic systems manager, Weathers co-founded Rigworks in San Diego. He went on to develop an international customer base, catering to some of the world’s largest yachts, as well as local cruisers and racing fleets.

Weathers then spent 11 years at Lewmar as custom sales manager, specializing in hydraulics systems for large custom yachts, as well as project management, technical service and, ultimately, adding Maine OEM sales responsibilities.

Weathers and his family are moving to Maine from Guilford, Conn.
