Let's face it: boats are expensive toys, part vehicle, part home, and all subjected to the challenges of the marine environment. And your marinized diesel engine is a big part of that expense. What starts out as a dream becomes a big expense, a big headache. They say the best days of boat ownership are the day you buy and the day you sell your boat.

We at KMS, LLC believe the best days should be in between--the days your dream becomes real, with the wind in your sails and the salt spray rolling down your foulies. Your dream--we get it. It is a good dream. And we want to help you make it a reality.

The truth is, we're all about those smooth jibes!

We at KMS, LLC didn't start out as mechanics. We started out as enthusiastic boaters, excited to cruise the big blue. We pursued our dreams, left our land-locked homes to be at the waterfront, and set off to sea on workboats, superyachts, and pleasure craft alike. Now we're here, bringing our marine diesel and salty boat expertise to you. We're more than just a marine diesel shop; we love what we do and our place as part of the Puget Sound boating community. If you're crossing the boundary from land-lubber to sailor, we want to help you!

That's why every year KMS, LLC chooses young, up-and-coming sailors to sponsor with in-kind contributions. That means free marine diesel help and overall vessel support. Our way of putting you up and supporting your dream. We love the vibrant sailing and yachting community here in Puget Sound. Truly, we live in a boater's paradise. If your dream is to break into that world, we can help.

We are looking for:

  • Young Sailors: who will be the next generation of Puget Sound sailors?  If your dreaming of your first cruise-capable vessel, but struggling to bring that dream to reality, we want to help you.
  • Sailboats That Race: the thrill of the race, the test of your skills!  This is what it's all about.  If you're hungry to take part in the region's many races and test your mettle, we want to support you.
  • Cost-Prohibited Dreamers: it takes most of us a lifetime of hard work to own a boat and outfit it for serious sailing.  We'd like to lessen the burden and help you get the sailing experience sooner, not later!

Is that you?  Contact us today.
