  • The History of Deans Marine Ltd.

From the Cowichan Valley

Dean started his home based business in 1999.

After steady growth and the addition of a couple new employees. We decided that spending 2-3 hrs a day moving boats in & out, that it was time to make the move. So in August of 2013, we moved to our current location. No more backing down the long skinny driveway or waiting for us to move boats out for our very loyal and patient customers. Some days we even had boats at our neighbour’s for lack of space. ( We had great neighbours )

Moving onto a one acre fully fenced lot in the industrial park with one full-time employee, we looked at each other and wondered how we would ever fill this place.

Well, 6 years later we find ourselves with

A Mercury Motor Dealership

4 Full Time Certified Mechanics

1 Full Time Apprentice

1 Full Time Parts Person

1 Full Time Web Guy

1 Part Time Office Staff

1 Part Time Bookkeeper

In addition, we are excited to host our 7th annual Marine Swap N Shop on the 2nd of May, 2020. We also find ourselves going into the computer age but still try to keep the backyard mentality of treating our customers like family.

We pride ourselves on being a marine mechanic teaching shop ….. With all that in Deans head…..
