About us

About the owners .... In 2017 Paul and Sarah Cross purchased KeelowCraft Boats from Dwayne and Gillian Terry.


Paul has been jetboating for over 25 years and has reached success in marathon racing - earning 1st Place in the 2013 World Jet Boat Marathon - CX Class.

Paul and Sarah have owned two KeelowCraft pleasure boats over the years, so when the opportunity arose to purchase the company, it was the natural next step for them.

Paul is a mechanic with over 27 years in the industry.   He is a born and bred Southlander and lives in Gore with his wife Sarah and son Ryan.
