The Sailor’s Boatyard welcomes the Sailor’s Sailor. T cher. Sailor. Boat builder. Skipper. Tea Navigator. Crew. Every aspect of sailing has been Kim Desenberg’s avocation and passion. His very way of life, since he sailed as a young kid on his family’s 27’ wooden cutter in the Channel Islands. While at Stanford, Kim sailed on the college team and was named an Intercollegiate All American sailor. Since then, he’s sailed Transpacs, crewed in the One Ton T World Championships, navigated a 3-month passage from Hawaii to Sydney, and raced in countless competitions up and down the West Coast of the United States and Mexico, as well as the East Coast, Caribbean and Europe. Over the years, Kim has come to know the ins-and-outs of boat building and repair like no other. He owned North Coast Yachts for 20 years, building custom sloops, fiberglass racer-cruisers, and a bunch of Wylie Wabbits. For the last twelve years, Kim was a Yard Manager at KKMI boatyard in Point Richmond, where many customers will remember
him for his honesty, Cutting Bl Blv vd integrity and the extraorPoint dinary care and attention Richmond he gave them and their boats. If you’re a member of the St. Francis Yacht 310 W. Cutting Blvd. Club, the Richmond P t .

And now, we’re proud that Kim has made Bay Marine Boatworks his new home. Give him a call at (510) 237-0140. He’ll give you and your boat the time and attention you deserve. And you’ll discover that Kim is not only the sailor’s sailor, but a heck of a nice guy as well.
