Boating is the gateway to a great lifestyle. For years, East River Marine has well served avid boaters travelling through the Nova Scotian waters of the South Shore, offering a safe place to tie up in its well designed marina. After four years of upgrades, the current owner is offering the business for sale. As a full service marine facility, it specializes in mechanical maintenance, painting, fiberglass, carpentry, electrical, indoor and outdoor storage, shrink wrap, sandblasting, and dock/mooring rentals.

A premiere destination on the Atlantic with stunning seasonal weather, this spot is an ideal locale. East River is proximate to not only the Mahone Bay islands to the west, but with its marina running alongside the Aspotogan Peninsula, up to Blandford and the Tancook Islands, there is a wealth of natural beauty. East River is in the municipality of Chester, where sailors need professional boat maintenance, storage, and repair. Fishing boats work the coast, and come to this facility for regular check ups and upgrades. In the midst of such incredible surroundings and destinations, East River Marine offers close proximity to a wealth of activities such as world class sailing, fishing, kayaking and even oceanfront golf. Two lots comprise the 12.3 acre property, with a three hundred and fifty feet protective breakwater wall and five hundred and seventy feet of frontage. There are many moorings and thirty marina slips for yachts up to seventy five feet LOA (length overall). Hauling capacity is seventy five feet LOA, twenty ft. beam, fifteen ft. draft, and seventy metric tonnes by travel lift.

Using the seventy tonne travel lift, and a newly built main steel storage shed (75 X 75 X 30 feet high), two to four boats can be worked on simultaneously. Another three thousand square foot building provides additional major boat storage. Fuel supply is on the horizon as an option for increasing the customer base. A report can be given to potential buyers, by request. An additional repair and maintenance building houses the chandler’s shop for supplies, including outboard motors and inflatables, the office and second level storage. Finally, ninety foot and one hundred twenty five foot wharves are in place for the boat lift, and fingers are all ramped and distributed for ease of docking access. There is plenty of room to expand into the watercourse with a generous mooring field. The boatyard has an upgraded four hundred amp service. A very knowledgeable long term staff is in place.
