Payne Marine, located on Georgian Bay in Pointe au Baril, is a third generation, family owned marina entering its 60th year in business! The marina has always supported local charities and not for profit groups, especially those with a focus on protecting Georgian Bay. Payne Marine is a proud supporter of the GBBR, the Georgian Bay Land Trust, Georgian Bay Association and Georgian bay Forever to name but a few. Payne Marine was also one of the very first marinas in the province to become a certified Clean Marine with the Ontario Marine Operators Associating (now Boating Ontario). Payne Marine has earned a five diamond ranking by recycling all used engine oils and lubes, shrink wrap, oil and fuel filters, and even cooking oil from their on site restaurant, Paynes Dockside Fish N Chips.
“Its about just doing the right thing” says Mark Payne, who is the companys current owner and president. “Taking care of the lands and waters of Georgian bay not only for ourselves, but for the generations to come is not just our passion, it is our duty. Without the pristine waters of the bay, we have nothing, both business wise and personally”.
Payne Marine is an internationally recognized industry leader and sets new levels of customer excellence every day. They are a Boating Industry TOP 100, twelve time recipient as well as a Yamaha Canada Five Star Dealer. Click on the video link to learn more.
