And now...  A word from our customers 


"And finally, I wish to say that it has been an absolute delight dealing with you. I have praised the service and the quality of the davits to many of my colleagues and also given them the link to your web site. Maybe you will get more orders from Norway. Thank you again."  TH Bavaria 45 Cruiser

“I just received the davits and outboard lift.  The products were packed well and the shipment was complete as ordered.  The quality is outstanding.  We just visited the Düsseldorf Boat Show in Germany, which is one of the most important exhibitions of Europe.  We noticed that the concept, construction and finish of your product are of a much higher level than your competition.  Thanks a lot.”  MB, Netherlands Cabo Rico 38

“Our association with ‘The Kato Family’ has been a total quality experience in every sense of the word.  May your tribe increase!” J. F. Island Packet 44

“I’m glad I have you and Kato to cover my backside.  Kudos to all of you folks.  In my business we call that going the extra mile – knock your socks off ‘service’.  I won’t forget Kato and the superior service you’ve offered during the last two years.  If you ever need a Captain’s reference you have my permission to give a prospective customer my name!”  M. J. Catalina 36

“Thank you for our KatoLift, we installed it Saturday.  Your instructions were great and it looks good and performs well.  Once again, thanks for a prompt and professional service.”  A. Q. Tartan 4100

“The installation was a breeze.  A friend and I installed the davits in a little over an hour.  I’d say 2.5 man hours.  Your instructions were clear and concise and your product and workmanship absolutely outstanding.  Thank you very much.  You have earned yourself a devotee.”  R. G.  Fisher 37  

“We purchased our davits from you at the Oakland Sail Expo.  They are finally on and look incredible.  We’ve already sailed the boat south over 300 miles and they were very stable.”  J. F. Tartan 4400   

“We had a great week-long cruise, and the davits performed beautifully.  They were a BIG improvement over towing the dinghy.  I truly admire the quality work that went into fabricating the davits, and appreciate your attentive help and advice.  The instructions were very clear, and I was able to install the davits by myself in an afternoon.  They are a great addition to our boat, both functionally and visually.  Thanks for everything."  H. H. Island Packet 380  

“Our KatoLift works great as an outboard engine lift, and also works to raise and lower our Old English Sheepdog into the dink!” G. C. Island Packet 40

"I have to tell you that the arch is absolutely gorgeous and we are thrilled with it. Your artistry is amazing, not only in the fit and finish as we saw in your work at the Annapolis Boat Show, but in your design to suit the boat.  For example, the way in which the forward leg of the arch follows the angle of the forward leg of the stern pulpit, and then the same spacing and proportion is mimicked with the truss. It is elegant, functional  and beautiful. I cannot imagine a better design nor a better realization of that design.  We knew we were buying an arch from an artist-engineer and that it would be made with the highest quality and ingenuity possible.  Even with those high hopes you exceeded our expectations in making something that integrates so well with the lines of our boat." M. M. Beneteau 54

"Thank you for building a fine product.  I installed your Pole Solution last spring and I'm very happy with the product.  The quality is outstanding, I'm sure it will be a long lasting addition to my boat." 

"You design, produce, and ship one of the highest quality products I have ever seen.  The welds are perfect, the polished SS is beautiful, the custom base is perfectly designed, and the design of the struts is ingenious.  It is so rare to open up a package in the marine industry and see it packed perfectly, made exactly as I ordered it, and then to be totally impressed with the entire experience.  The design of the pole sections is cool.  It took me only a few moments to figure out your instructions.  With a simple tube cutter, and a twist, the struts will fit perfectly. 
What a great experience!  Your products are not cheap, but you get what you pay for, and more."
