Leave the city and your job behind and save the drudgery of the commute! There is no traffic here.
You CAN escape the city and live in cottage country about 1 hour west of Sudbury on beautiful Mantioulin Island (the gateway to the North Channel). Casual clothing is the new dress code, a great trade for your ‘white collar’ attire. Enjoy the morning sunrise across the water and enjoy a sunset across the harbour after the marina is closed for the day.
No need to scrape off the car in the winter every morning for the long commute to work, as you will have the freedom of choice to: travel south, travel the world or stay put and snowmobile, cross country ski, ice fish and enjoy the winter season.
That all probably sounds good, but it’s not all sunrises and boat rides, there is work to be done and you will have the toughest boss you’ve ever had - yourself. Like many marinas, revenue comes from maintenance, parts sales, slips, winter storage and many other elements of the business that generate income.
Covid was the wakeup call to city dwellers, it became clear that people felt the need to be more spread out, many wanted to escape the city itself but still needed the employment they had in the city. This marina can be your escape plan, lots of open space, you’ll trade the city smog for fresh air.
This is a lifestyle that you are buying, a Marina is absolutely not a ‘get rich quick’ business. That said, this marina is successful and offers a reliable income and is an excellent real estate play, you will have a comfortable lifestyle as long as you put in the effort. This is a well-established (45th season) marina that is a turnkey business and includes a rental home adding to your year round income.
Don’t come from the marine industry? Not a problem. You do need to have a love for outdoors, the water and boating. Each season is routine and we will assist with the transition, we want you to succeed. Hundreds of thousands have been spent on upgrades though there is always a long list of work to be done.
Intriguing but all too vague? That’s by design, this is not a public sale at this time, this is exclusively for serious buyers. It is also a very busy business so we have little time for the curious. This is a private sale, if you are a realtor, we are not interested in listing so please do not ask, we will only have a conversation if you have a firm offer to present.
You may have noticed that we did not include a price. It’s 2022 and from what we have observed and heard from friends and family who have recently moved, a price is not relevant at all in relation to what a property actually sells for these days. Our end game is also not entirely about price.
Our customers are like family returning each season and we want to know they will be in good hands. We also know what we have and it will not be sold at an undervalued price. We do not have to sell but we have other future retirement interests and feel it's time for someone else to take over. It is our intention to stay on to do appropriate training to make for a smooth transition.

For more specific details, you will need to commit to a non-disclosure agreement.
