Bob Dupuy

Bob started working for AMIkids in 1999. Initially, his role was to support the vocational training program at the AMIkids Boatyard, teaching marine mechanics.

Eventually, his position evolved to include providing support for improving donated vessels. He also earned a USCG 100 Ton Boat Captain's License and performed as corporate Captain moving boats and executing deliveries. Bob's role naturally evolved into project management.

Today, Bob is responsible for approving, executing, and auditing the improvements of all donated vessels.  His excellent knowledge base and decades of experience help the AMIkids Yacht Donation Program make sound and informed decisions about the boats we accept as donations and ensure compliance with IRS requirements.
