Krates welcome message to their clients as they open in Keswick under new management…. 

“To our boaters and supporters,

It’s been a long winter for all of us, but Spring is just around the corner!

We are so happy and proud to be opening in time for the 2015 season.

As you can imagine, we’ve been navigating some rough waters. We may clip a few more props along the way, but we are forecasting smooth sailing from here on out.

In the spirit of new beginnings, we would like you to be the first to hear about all of the exciting changes that are coming to your marina.

We would like to welcome back some of our team members, and introduce you to some new faces:


    Rob Walters as our General Manager

    Michelle Walters as our Harbour Manager

    Greg Staples as our Service Manager,

    Kim Murray and Wayne McPhee as Service Advisors

    Larry Valentini as our Yard Foreman

You will also recognise Jan, Norm, Dale, Jamie and many more.

We will always be open to your ideas, questions, and concerns, and we promise to keep you informed every step of the way.

Contact emails and information, Launch Forms, links to Facebook and Twitter, and other news items will be available on our new website shortly @
