Rob & Nadine Kraft
On Labour Day weekend (2021) Rob and Nadine were on route to Boblo Island when his brother’s boat broke down. They ended up at Ecarte Marina for repair and then returned to Sarnia Bay instead of carrying on their journey.
Some friends informed them that the marina was for sale and on Sunday they returned to speak with Brad (former owner). They got a walk-through of the property and shortly thereafter they completed the deal, officially taking over the business on March 31st, 2022.
When asked how they were liking the transition so far, Rob said he had “definitely no qualms, love this place; love the town, love the atmosphere, people are awesome around here.”
Nadine mentioned some of the changes they had made so far; they cleaned the place up with some decluttering and fresh paint, put on a new deck, cut down a huge tree, and did some renovations to the upper level of the building, creating two one-bedroom rental units that can occupy four guests. They also now have transient docking.
Future plans include bathroom renovations, creating a kid-friendly clubhouse, and some water-based activities for kids and the young at heart.
