Sailboat builder Morris Yachts appointed Pete Carroll as its new president.

Carroll will be responsible for all aspects of the Maine builder’s operations, customer service, finance and facilities.

"The Morris family is excited to have Pete join our team in Maine," company owner Cuyler Morris said in a statement. "His background of leadership, engineering and business acumen will serve Morris Yachts and our customers very well and help us integrate and support our world-class boatbuilding and service teams."

Carroll recently retired from the Coast Guard after 20 years of active duty.

As commanding officer of the Civil Engineering Unit Cleveland, he was responsible for $1 billion in facilities in the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic states.

"I feel honored to work with such fine craftsmen and professionals and can't wait to implement some of the exciting new ideas that Cuyler and I have been discussing," said Carroll. "I'm looking forward to meeting all of the Morris owners and service customers, and building relationships with new customers."

When Carroll attended the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, he was a member of the dinghy racing team, winning the freshman nationals.
