San Diego Boatyard Renovates, Adds More Boat Storage Space

By Tom York 

Shelter Island’s Driscoll Boat Works in San Diego is rolling out a new 150-ton mobile hoist from Wisconsin-based marina boat-handling equipment maker Marine Travelift.

The company said upgrading the hoist marks the start of a $4.5 million renovation project that includes lease renewal negotiations with the Port of San Diego.

The hoist, which replaces the old one in use since 1992, will boost efficiency and productivity at the boatyard, according to a news release.

The boatyard’s renovation features extensive improvements such as adding 200 feet of wharf and installing 7,000 square feet of solar panels. In addition, the completed project will include adding 200 linear feet of marginal wharf, resurfacing the existing concrete yard, building two new enclosed boat sheds and installing 7,000 square feet of solar panels.

A spokesperson for Driscoll said the 77-year-old business is excited about improving the facility and is looking forward to continuing its partnership with the port.

Gerald Driscoll founded the facility in 1947 and the site has been family owned and operated for three generations, according to the release.
