    Pt. Richmond Maritime Centre Announced
    Keefe Kaplan Maritime, Inc. (KKMI) announced their plans to offer its 5.1 Acre
    waterfront property in Pt. Richmond for sale on a long-term leaseback as part of their
    plans to redevelop the property. Located on the Santa Fe Channel, this deep-water
    nautical cul-de-sac will serve to become the Bay’s largest and most environmentally
    advanced marine center in California.

    In addition to KKMI continuing its service and repair operations in Pt. Richmond and
    Sausalito, the “Maritime Centre” in Pt. Richmond will include a 10,000 sq. ft. marine
    supply store, workshops for the marine trades and boat/yacht sales offices. Plans also
    include the construction of a 400 Ton capacity mobile shipyard crane, capable of
    providing shipyard services to the Bay’s growing fleet of highspeed ferries.

    Ken Keefe, co-founder of KKMI commented, “Following in the footsteps of the sailboat
    hardware manufacturer Harken, who recently sold and leased back their manufacturing
    facility, we see this as the best long-term strategy for KKMI as well. This will allow us to
    remain completely focused on our clients, team members and providing great value to

    “With continued urbanization, particularly with waterfront properties, it’s rare, if not
    impossible to find a property that’s more ideal than where KKMI is located.” Said Paul
    Kaplan, co-founder. Adding, “KKMI’s commitment to providing a great service
    experience includes our world-class facilities. With KKMI’s environmental leadership
    and serving as the anchor tenant at the Maritime Centre, our future is secure for
    decades to come at such a facility.”
