Jon Bardo

After graduating from the Marine Science Department at Southern Maine Vocational Technical Institute in 1972, Jon Bardo was employed on the schooner yacht AMERICA as an engineer. Having survived 14 months of bluewater cruising, Jon came ashore and spent the next seven years repairing diesel engines in everything from commercial fishing vessels to logging equipment. Eventually drawn back to the sea, Jon worked on commercial tugboats for four years and then started his own business working on diesel engines, which he enjoys to this day.
