“We've been named ‘Boatyard of the Year’.”

“Actually, it’s the ‘Award of Excellence’.”

“It’s pretty cool that we’ve been named Boatyard of the Year. Hello, my name is Bob Hennessey and I am one of the four project managers at KKMI. Over the past decade, we’ve taken this business to a level that no one has reached before. For example, each client has an individual manager who is their ‘go to guy’. In fact, it’s the blending of ALL of the talented Team members that has allowed us to offer you, the boat owner, the most complete range of services and the very best value possible.”

“Actually, it’s the Award of Excellence that we’ve received from the American Boat Builders and Repairers Association (ABBRA). I’m Mike Haley, and I’ve known of this Team for a long time, as they were my neighbors. For 33 years, I operated Richmond Boat Works. It was a constant challenge to run a quality company all by myself. What I saw across the fence impressed me, and I am proud to be part of the Team that has been recognized by our industry as the very best.”

“You’re BOTH right.”

“We came in first!”

“Bob and Mike, you’re BOTH right, which might be the last time I’ll make that statement (laughing). Greetings, I’m Jock MacLean, and I’ve know Ken Keefe and Paul Kaplan since we were teenagers. We grew up dreaming that some day we could create a world class service facility on San Francisco Bay. It’s very rewarding to be a member of the very first team to win this prestigious award in Northern California. It would appear as if our dream has come true.”

“My name is Kim Desenberg and I too have spent my entire life in this industry. I have been racing sailboats since I was young, and there’s still nothing more fun than working with a Team and crossing the finish line yelling, “We came in first!” As in anything, winning doesn’t come easy; it takes hard work and dedication. It is an honor to work with such a talented group of craftsmen and professional individuals at KKMI.”
