Favorite boats:

  • My grandfather’s 1953 Penn Yan Car Top*
  • Antique Penn Yan boats and Hinckley Motor yachts

* Penn Yan marketed the Car Top as light and narrow enough to fit on top of most cars of the time and could be lifted by two people.

Kevin O’Neill
Kevin O’NeillMarine Services Manager
Hired temporarily by Stu Sill some 32 years ago, Kevin has proven himself an invaluable help to many boaters over the years, and we are lucky to have him as a member of the Katlynn team. Kevin is a true craftsman whose specialties include brightwork and wooden boat restoration. When he’s not giving new life to an old ship, you can find him horseback riding, cruising on his motorcycle, or climbing the High Peaks.

A Yanmar-Certified Mechanic, Brett is the man to see when you’re having engine troubles, or if your engine just isn’t running as it should.

Chris Collins
Chris CollinsDock Attendant
We welcomed Chris Collins to the Katlynn family after he started a refit on a Columbia 24 that was sitting in his backyard. He wanted to work with people who could teach him about sailing, and quickly found our marina. Since then he’s been a reliable hand on the docks and at the gas dock, and he’s been a great help to many a boater. He spends most of his free time sailing, or playing his guitar and producing his own music.
