Changes at Kaplan's Marine

After over 20 years of doing business from my San Rafael shop, I am now exclusively working by appointment. Call me at (415) 485-0801. As a one man business, being mobile helps me to provide the best service to my commercial and sportsman/recreational customers. I have a yard near the Richmond Marina and another yard near Auburn, which are my bases of operation.

If your boat needs service, call me at (415) 485-0801, so we can make an appointment. We can arrange a convenient place to service/drop off your boat. I have shop trailers for boats to 28' and pickup and delivery is chargeable by the hour.

I welcome do-it-yourselfers, and enjoy sharing my 43 years of experience, helping you with your Yamaha outboard needs. You will get much more personal attention and free consultation when calling before 8am or after 4pm.

At the yamahaoutboards.com website you can look up parts. You can also see suggested list prices which is what I usually sell for, but there are numerous exceptions, like when buying an engine or parts with big markup such as trim units and lower ends. All parts can be mailed, delivered or picked by appointment. I have the largest dealer-owned engine and parts inventory in Northern California.

I think it's important to stress the importance of buying local and having the pre-delivery inspection of motors done by me. I have been a Yamaha Key Dealer for 15 years, and last year had a 100% Customer Satisfaction rating.

Key things to note:


Kaplan's Marine is the San Francisco Bay Area's Yamaha outboard motor headquarters, with Northern California's largest inventory of dealer owned outboards. Kaplan's Marine sells and services only Yamaha outboards.
