Bruce Hopkins joined catamaran builder Gunboat as the new CFO.

For the last 15 years, Hopkins has been a CFO at Maine boatbuilders Lyman Morse and Hodgkin Yachts. "It was time to bring in someone of Bruce's caliber," company founder Peter Johnstone said in a statement.

After 30 years in Maine, Hopkins and his wife, Kate, have made the move to North Carolina.

“We're excited to be here,” Hopkins said in a statement. “Gunboat is thriving and we're looking forward to being able to sail in warm weather for six months out of the year, rather than six weeks.”
