Jason Constantine was promoted to president of both North End Composites and Back Cove Yachts. He will also continue to serve as chief operating officer of both companies.

For the last four years, Constantine has been responsible for all of the manufacturing operations at the Rockland, Maine, facility, where lamination work is carried out for Sabre Yachts and where the Back Cove line is built, the company said.

"Jason has demonstrated, during his years at Sabre Yachts and Back Cove Yachts, a deep understanding of composites and boatbuilding, as well as showing remarkable leadership skills," North End Composites and Back Cove Yachts CEO Christopher Evans said in a statement. "He is without a doubt the right person to take over the senior position at our company."

Constantine joined Sabre Yachts in 2003 as a member of the assembly team, building the Sabreline 47, the first of Sabre's large powerboats. He then became an assembly line supervisor in 2005. In 2007, he was asked to manage Back Cove production and assumed the title of chief operating officer in 2010.
