Knight & Carver

After four decades as a luxury yacht builder and boat yard in National City, California, Knight & Carver now offers superyacht service and refit work as Marine Group Boat Works National City.

History

Knight & Carver was founded in 1971 on San Diego Bay. Originally a dockside repair shop, Knight & Carver’s reputation soon grew beyond repair and refit. The shipyard built more than 100 luxury yachts.

Knight & Carver filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in March 2012. Marine Group Boat Works successfully won the bid to take over the company in 2013. Knight & Carver built out of a shipyard owned by the Port of San Diego. The company has been since rebranded Marine Group Boat Works National City.

Notable Launches

Golden Osprey is a 30-metre custom sport fishing yacht built by Knight & Carver in 1993. Her interior design by Joseph Artese is all exotic Koa hardwood from Hawaii.

Prelude is a 24-metre luxury yacht that built by Knight & Carver in 1988 and 24-metre Altamar debuted that same year.

Specialisation

Superyachts cruising the Pacific West Coast call in to Marine Group Boat Works National City for haul outs, repairs, bottom paints, hull extensions, centreboard service, propeller and shaft work, engine repowers and custom metal fabrications. The shipyard’s location is a natural gateway to the South Pacific, centrally located between Alaska and Mexico.
