Kathleen is a qualified Marine Diesel Engineer as well as a Marine Surveyor and she has been involved with large diesel power units both on land and at sea during most of her marine surveying career. She has had a fascination for anything that moves, floats or rotates, by means of petrol, diesel, sail or steam ever since she was a small child in a rural community in Sussex. Consequently, as Naval Architect and Marine Surveyer “Kathleen J Kilbey” she has surveyed a large number of Motor Yachts commercial vessels and Power Boats, alongside Surveying of many Sailing Vessels.
A few of the more interesting Motor Boats surveyed over the years by KJK are listed and pictured below. As with the sailboats, many of the pictures are pre-digital, consequently the definition is not always perfect.
