NMMA is sad to share the news that George Cuthbertson, founder of Cuthbertson & Cassian (C&C) Yachts, and NMMA Canada Hall of Fame recipient in 2002, has passed away.
George became the president of C&C Yachts at a time when it was the most recognized and successful production and custom boat builder in North America and the world. Leaving the company in 1982, George reestablished himself as an independent yacht designer.
George dedicated his career to helping grow recreational boating.
His dedication to recreational boating and leadership over the years had a significant, positive impact on the marine industry. He was a world class designer who established a design legacy that is still recognized to this day.
The family has confirmed the funeral will be private, but they plan to have an event in the future to celebrate George’s life.
