CAPTAIN JASON POWELL

AquaTraction of New England

Captain Jason Powell has been a yacht broker with South Shore Dry Dock Marine (SSDDM) since 2000 and operates an office in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Prior to joining SSDDM, he attended UMass-Lowell and completed his master’s degree in physical therapy and sports medicine. He worked for the New England Patriots for two seasons (1991-92). He then worked in physical therapy private practice, while simultaneously earning a US Coast Guard captain’s license and starting a sport fishing charter business based in Westport, Massachusetts. Jason has run and fished aboard numerous tournament-caliber sportfish boats throughout the Northeast and logged as many as 20 canyon fishing trips per season. He was introduced to the AquaTraction product through a friend and immediately envisioned the numerous potential applications and demand given his experiences as a full-time yacht broker and avid fisherman. His hands-on experiences include a gas to diesel repower on his charter boat, co-ownership of a custom 37-foot Downeast Sportfish, project co-management on a 38-foot Wesmac Downeast major refit project, and the restoration of his family’s 1893 farmhouse. Jason will leverage his many years in the marine industry as he introduces and expands the AquaTraction brand throughout New England. AquaTraction of New England was formed in early 2017 and we’re very excited to increase our presence throughout the Northeast. Jason serves as a volunteer member of the Westport Conservation Commission, was a founding board member of the Westport Education Foundation, and is devoted to raising funds to get disabled and financially challenged US Veterans out fishing. He and his wife Karen have three daughters and live in Westport, Massachusetts.
