Knight & Carver YachtCenter has formed Knight & Carver Delivered, extending the yacht-repair firm’s services to vessels at marinas throughout San Diego and as far north as Marina del Rey.

Knight & Carver Delivered provides a full line of maintenance and repair services to boats where they are docked.

"This innovative specialty service gives boat owners the comfort of knowing our top marine craftsmen will report directly to their slips," said Kate Pearson, vice president of business development for Knight & Carver, in a statement. "Instead of our customers coming to see us, we go directly to them."

Knight & Carver, based in National City, Calif., has two fully equipped vans for the new business unit, which will utilize its most experienced tradesmen, including carpenters, electricians and mechanics.
