Posted on behalf of Christian Tirtirau, SV Northern Light:

Cruisers transiting the East Coast of Canada, should seriously consider Shining Waters Marine as it is one the best marine yards in the Halifax area. Situated at the head of St. Margaret’s Bay, the yard is run by competent, reliable professionals and the customer service is excellent.

In addition to being a Yanmar Dealer, as well as a Tohatsu outboard and Wallas dealer, SWM offers :

· Haul, storage and launch up to 50 tonnes
· Deep Water Moorings
· 54 serviced slips
· Fiberglass repairs and maintenance services such as
waxing, bottom painting, etc.
· Engine and mechanical repairs of most makes and models
· Electronics repairs & new installs
· Plumbing repairs & new installs
· Winterization services
· Fuel service
· Holding tank pump-out equipment

Contact Director of Operations Eric Smith at +1 902 826 3625, a sailor himself with great understanding of blue water equipment and cruisers’ needs in general. This is a great place to prepare for a return passage to Europe via the North Atlantic or if heading north towards Newfoundland and Labrador or Greenland and beyond. SWM has plenty of space, friendly staff, a welcoming atmosphere and the surroundings are stunning. Highly recommended!
