Capt. Benjamin Graffius and his uncle, Jonathan Graffius, recently opened a TowBoatUS location in Kennebunkport, Maine, and purchased TowBoatUS Sebago Lake.

The native Mainers opened their first TowBoatUS location last summer in Portland.

Benjamin Graffius, a graduate of Mount Desert Island High School and the Maine Maritime Academy, has a Coast Guard unlimited masters license and is a chief mate aboard an oil-drilling vessel for Seadrill Americas in the Gulf of Mexico. Jonathan Graffius grew up boating in the Sebago Lake region and on Cape Cod and teaches art at the Poland Community School.

The Graffius' service area extends south of Small Point, Phippsburg, to north of Cape Neddick, including the communities of Harpswell, Brunswick, Freeport, Yarmouth, Cumberland, Falmouth, Portland, South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, Scarborough, Old Orchard Beach, Saco, Biddeford, Cape Porpoise, Kennebunkport, Wells and Ogunquit.

Other nearby TowBoatUS locations can be found in Castine and Boothbay, Maine, as well as Newburyport, Mass., and Portsmouth, N.H.
