Tim and Amy Sheehan met at 3 Dollar Dewey’s in Portland on New Year’s Eve many moons ago. Tim, an Aroostook / UMO boy was in town on a student teaching gig in Yarmouth at the time. Amy grew up in Cumberland, graduated from Greely HS and had recently returned to the area from Northeastern University in Boston.
The Sheehan’s started Gulf of Maine, Inc. after settling in the Washington County town of Pembroke where they could live by the sea, paddle the waters, and explore the unsettled shores of Cobscook Bay. The company has taken various iterations over the years from architectural salvage, to Christmas wreaths, to outfitter/ecotours, to scientific specimen supply, and now to their growing seafood /shellfish business.
20 years later and with 4 amazing children growing and working alongside their parents the couple are now quite pleased and proud with the fruits of their labor. The Sheehans reside on Leighton Point in Pembroke on a wonderful old saltwater farm looking out over the tidal waters of Cobscook Bay.
