Portland Yacht Services’ service manager, Rob Benson began working in the marine industry shortly after he graduated from Maine Maritime Academy in 1981. After several years working variously as a sailing instructor, mate on an offshore supply vessel and as a yacht delivery captain, Benson returned to school in the late 1980’s. In 1990 he graduated from the Landing School of Boatbuilding and Design.
After graduation, Benson worked as a draftsman at John Gilbert Associates Naval Architects before returning to the Landing School as Facilitator of Marine Systems from 2000-2001.
It is Benson’s wide-ranging experience and professional demeanor which make him such a valuable part of the PYS team. As an enthusiastic yachtsman Benson understands the concerns of boaters, but has the technical background to explain maintenance and service issues in a clear and concise style.
