About K&C Marine
Our story started small as K&C Marine began in the back of a used truck and brought on a life of its own, much like the majority of small companies who have similar stories. We put the needs of our customers first and try to deliver a level of service that sets us apart from the rest. We have found ourselves growing at an almost unrealistic rate and unfortunately don't always realize it unit we have accomplished what we set out to do. These lessons are important and we do our best to learn from them. We grew from one used truck into 4 storage units before realizing we had created such a large business.
With the constant evolution of K&C Marine and almost 4 years in business, we now have a 2,800 sqft shop in Kailua, and two mobile work vans. We have become a dealer for Yanmar, Kohler, OXE, Optimus 360 and AmsOil, and expect to become a dealer for many more trusted brands to service the islands of Hawaii. We are very excited to see it grow and what started as K&C Marine has evolved into K&C Marine Group LLC at the beginning of 2022. We are happy you trust us with your boating needs so you can enjoy your investment as much as we do.
Who is the K&C
Business comes natural to Paul just like boating for a reason. He was born into a commercial fishing family in Virginia and spent most of his younger days learning the ins and outs of boating and the proper ways to maintain a vessel, no matter the platform. From family fishing vessels to pleasure sailers on the Chesapeake Bay, Paul understands what it takes to make sure every moment onboard is one to remember.
Tyler has spent the last 12 years in the Army where he spent most of his time as a Watercraft Operator in charge of 92m vessels and the safe passage of cargo between the Hawaiian Islands. He also spent a good part of his career working as an outboard motor maintainer for the Joint Task Force that operated throughout the Pacific. Unlike Paul, he grew up in a very dry area of Tennessee, but as soon as his Army career began, he fell in love with the water and knew this was his passion.
Ashley has an impressive track record in the marine industry, having spent three years at West Marine Pro department where she consistently achieved top sales marks for her region. Her extensive experience and knowledge of the boat business make her a valuable asset to any team. Recently, Ashley joined the K&C Marine team as Director of Operations, bringing with her a wealth of skills and expertise to help the company grow and succeed in the future. Her dedication, hard work, and passion for the industry are sure to make a significant impact on the team and the business. We are thrilled to have her onboard and look forward to seeing her contributions to our company's continued growth and success.
