I am the owner of boathouse and slip A3 in Ladysmith Marina for the past three years and would like to express my thanks for the functional design and solid construction of the boathouse and the operation of the marina.
Almost every time I visit my boathouse I see some new improvements and amenities for the tenants. The grounds and docks are kept in A1 shape and the staff are friendly and helpful. Security and facilities are adequate and it appears that my thoughts are shared given the number of tenants resident on the marina.
I have just had a custom 80- foot boathouse constructed to my requirements by the Oak Bay Marine Group. The lack of any sizeable well-constructed boathouses on Vancouver Island has created my decision to own a custom-built boathouse. The construction starts on the up-land within a custom boat-house assembly structure. The assembly jig permits the framing phase of the boat-house to be efficient. During the building, the general manager had some excellent suggestions to improve the functionality. The finished product is a beautiful solid structure the craftmanship is at an extremely high standard. I am incredibly pleased with the outcome and, I look forward to the winter boat projects within the weather protection of my new boathouse.
In the past 14 years I have had the opportunity to have two quality built boat houses provided by Ladysmith Marina. In both cases the construction was completed on time, within budget, and the contractor was flexible in allowing additional improvements through the building process. The protected location of the marina is ideal for great cruising. The property and floats are well kept, and security has never been an issue. There is always a friendly staff member available to lend a hand. I highly recommend LSM.
Oak Bay Sea Rescue Society, Operating RCMSAR Station 33, was in need of a new boathouse. Our structure would need to withstand not only the exposure of prevailing winds and surg in a relatively open bay, but it also had to accommodate our rescue vessel on a lift system, a “dry room” for our equipment, and a training room on a mezzanine level. The extent of Oak Bay Marine Group’s expertise in the boathouse building space was clear from the outset. When we needed to make some changes along the way, they were receptive and even brought suggestions to us first. We always felt we were very special customers, and that they appreciated our business. We would not hesitate in recommending the Oak Bay Marine Group team to others who are looking for a first class boathouse. Come on down for a tour – we’d be happy to show off their fantastic work.
Having the opportunity over the years to see several boathouses up and down the coast it is clear to us that OBMG houses are second to none. The construction is solid and with the materials being premium grade cedar and fir these sheds are set to last the lifetime of your boat! As current owners, we highly recommend for OBMG to build a boathouse to protect your investment!
