Koehler Kraft is San Diego’s longest standing family owned boat yard and has a staff of professional shipwrights that can handle any of your yacht repair, bottom painting, or restoration needs.

Haul Outs

Koehler Kraft has two systems for hauling out wood and fiberglass boats, a 90-ton crane and a 40-ton marine railway system. Boats from 20 to 70 feet in length can be hauled out for simple inspections or can be placed in our 150′ work dock.

The crane can be used to haul out boats wider than some travel lift systems can accommodate in San Diego, and can also be used to assist with lifting and placement of heavy objects, such as new motors or to unstep/step masts.

If you wish to work on your own boat without assistance from Koehler Kraft professionals, you may do so 7 days a week. Learn more about DIY (do-it-yourself) haul-outs by reading our frequently asked questions.

Bottom Paint

Koehler Kraft specializes in creating the perfect bottom for you! Whether you are a long range cruiser, an ocean racer, a weekend warrior, or anywhere in between, we can produce a new bottom that is just right for your needs.

We feature the full line of Interlux products.

Interlux is North America’s leading supplier of boat paint maintenance solutions to help protect, beautify, and improve your boat’s performance.

We also offer an alternative to copper bottom paint if you prefer to go green. We will remove all of your old bottom paint and give you a new ‘Green’ bottom.
