KLS Marine is owned and operated by Ken Sayler in Lolo, Montana. The first KLS Muffler was built in 1993 to meet the growing needs of jet boaters and builders concerned about noise levels inside and outside of the boat. Research and design became an integral part of the company as manufacturers’ specifications changed, boat motors were improved, and boat owners desired a quieter ride. As KLS Marine grew, so did the product line. The KLS Sandtrap was designed in 1998 at the request of a commercial boat builder looking for a more efficient, reliable, and affordable sandtrap.
