The 32-year-old Condon is a native of Cape Cod and a former assistant harbormaster in Yarmouth, MA. Prior to that he spent a decade crewing aboard tankers on domestic and international routes. He is a 2005 graduate of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy.

His role as harbormaster will involve oversight of moorings, recreational boating issues, harbor safety, industrial operations, ferry traffic, construction companies, dredging companies and more.
