Upon reopening they were able to rehire 75% of their previous work force and all upper level management. This in itself speaks to the strong culture and professionalism that my father and Stuart brought to ownership. Today I am proud to announce I have rejoined the Gulfstream team. In 2004, I left Freeport Shipbuilding to start my own passenger boat business. My company SunQuest Cruises and SunVenture Cruises currently operates a 125' dining/ entertainment yacht and a 45' eco-excursion boat. I truly understand the challenges you face as an operator on a day-to-day basis. My understanding of these challenges, and my knowledge in building a functional passenger vessel, is what I bring to Gulfstream. If you are thinking of a new construction project or a refurbish, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thanks and continue to prosper. Sincerely, Gulfstream Shipbuilding, Inc. James Murray II, Sales Manager P.S. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers during my father’s passing. He was a beautiful person who had a passion for boatbuilding and a love for family.
