The organization of Kaløvig Bådelaug was founded in 1968 by a group of enterprising sailors. These future members also built the boat harbour. As the sailing activities increased the harbour was expanded, but the space soon ran out due to the close proximity to the thermal heating station of Studstrupværket. In 1983, after many years in close proximity of Studstrupværket, Lady Luck smiled down on Kaløvig Bådelaug. The thermal heating station had also become too large and needed to expand, so they made an agreement with Kaløvig Bådelaug.
