After nearly 60 years in the marine repair and service business, Canoe Cove Marina has sold that portion of their operation to Vector Yacht Services, located on Harbour Road in Sidney. Vector Marine will take over the marine chandlery and the mechanical shop at Canoe Cove Marina as their second location. A number of Canoe Cove’s technical staff have made the transition to Vector Yacht Services effective July 1 and will continue to provide most of the services that Canoe Cove has offered for so long. Some of the Canoe Cove staff will be moving to the marina offices.
With this change, Canoe Cove will continue to run the marina, Travelift, haulout and dryland storage facilities, while Vector joins the select group of marine professionals offering first class marine services including inboard and outboard sales and service, inflatable sales and service, and an enhanced electronics program, along with many of the other services boaters have become used to at the marina.
Moorage enquiries, haul-out and dryland storage requests will be handled in the upstairs marina office. The fuel float will continue to be operated by Canoe Cove Marina and will be open on demand, seven days per week. Vector will be running the marine chandlery seven days per week as has been the practice.
“We are very excited to have Vector Yacht Services join the community at Canoe Cove Marina,” says Don Prittie, general manager. “They bring some services not previously available at the Cove and come with a strong reputation for customer service in a variety of areas.” Canoe Cove Marina and Boatyard has built a solid reputation for excellence in all areas of boat and yacht repairs and service.
