Our centrally located boatyard in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island is just a short trip from Victoria BC , Comox, Courtenay and Campbell River, the Sunshine Coast, Metro Vancouver and the rest of Vancouver Island.

We are readily accessible from Vancouver and Seattle by ferry or a short flight by seaplane as well as regular aircraft.  And of course we’re at the head of the Gulf Islands enabling easy access to some of the most spectacular cruising in the world.
