Tuesday, April 29, 2003
Knight & Carver YachtCenter of San Diego announced a teaming agreement with Southwest Marine that provides Knight & Carver full use of Southwest Marine’s dry-dock facilities to service vessels of virtually unlimited tonnage. Under the agreement, Knight & Carver will be able to use Southwest Marine’s facilities for large-vessel haulouts, with Knight & Carver’s work crews working at Southwest Marine on an as-needed basis. The two companies are located several miles from each other along the San Diego bay front. The teaming agreement, made jointly by Knight & Carver President/CEO Sampson A. Brown and Southwest Marine Vice President/Commercial Marketing Alex Vinck, takes effect immediately. Southwest Marine’s shipyard features five piers with a total capacity of over 2,800 feet, and two floating dry docks with the following capacities: 1) 400’ x 66’ and 4,000 long tons and 2) 568’ x 105’ and 22,600 long tons. “We are extremely excited about this expansion of our business and being able to service some of the larger yachts in the world, which are more frequently utilizing the West Coast as a cruising corridor,” said Brown. “This puts our company among the nation’s top boatyards in being able to service such larger yachts and commercial vessels.”
