Chris-Craft Names New VP of Sales


Just before the Fourth of July holiday weekend, Chris-Craft announced that marine industry veteran Gavan Hunt will be the company’s new VP of sales. In this position, Hunt will be in charge of all domestic and international sales for Chris-Craft, and will work with Chris-Craft’s sales team and global dealer network to grow the business.

“I look forward to joining the team at Chris-Craft,” Hunt says in a statement. “My wife, Kelley, and I are excited about the move to Chris-Craft headquarters in Sarasota, as we believe it's a perfect time both personally and professionally to come aboard. The product offering, the dealer network, and the iconic brand are positioned perfectly for growth.”

Previously, Hunt worked at Cobalt Boats for 17 years, where he held the positions of VP of sales and marketing, director of dealer development and regional sales manager. Before Cobalt, Hunt worked at both Chaparral Boats and the Nautic Global Group. The marine life also runs in Hunt’s blood: His father was a marina manager and as a kid the family owned a Chris-Craft.
