Here’s what others have said and how they rate us.
We stayed here the nights of 8/5-6/15. Great staff, free pump-out for AGLCA members (not a small $ savings in Canada). Mechanic Graham removed bow thruster motor, we took loaner car to take motor to Sudbury to be worked on. Laundry/showers clean and good.
Best Marina Experience on the Great Loop
We came in here on July 25, 2015 with a suspected broken transmission. these guys quickly diagosed the problem, eliminated all other (less expensive) possibilities, and got the parts on order to fix the transmission without taking it out of the boat. Because it is such a remote part of Ontario, it took a few days for the parts to arrive, but in the meanwhile, we were treated royally by Graham Lacey and his staff. Even though it was their busiest season, Graham was always available to us to answer any questions and to help us get a number of other minor issues on the boat taken care of while we were waiting for the parts. While there is not much in Britt (1 restaurant and 1 store), the marina has two very nice cars that you can use for a small fee to go to Parry Sound, to Killarney, or to Sudbury, all of which are 1-2 hours away. The marina has well-kept docks, excellent power, good wi-fi, clean bathrooms and showers. And in the end, after a 10-day stay, the cost came out to about half what the same repair cost us (on our other transmission) in Florida last year! To say I was pleased is the understatement of the year. I cannot say enough good things about Wright's Marina.
Knowledge is key
Bought a tracker w/75 merc. Pulling to the left hard. Thought it was the rack and pinion. Graham found the motor was installed too high! Fixed it. Saved me time and money. Thanks again.
Response: Glad we were able to help Tom. Time to go boating!
See you soon
Hard to believe this will be our 40th season at Wrights Marina. And we are both as anxious and excited to get there as we were the first year. That says something special both about your marina and the the part of Georgian Bay we are so blessed to enjoy.
See you soon.
Above and Beyond
It took me seven months to say thank you. Last October, when i was closing my cottage my dog became ill and through very large seas Graham came out and help me take care of my best friend FLY DOG . That is caring!
Hi Graham, as you know we have sold “Escapade” and I want to thank everyone at Wright’s for a wonderful ten years of very friendly, professional, reliable service. I have been at several marinas over the years and I can tell you that Wright’s is number one with me. I’m happy that the new owner, Luc, is staying put. Good luck to you, Karrie and family in the future. shalom
Response: Congratulations Michael on selling Escapade. We wish you all the best.
July 2013 - Thank you Graham. It was a pleasure to meet you and I would be remiss in not mentioning how impressed our son Ted and I were in your Marina. A really first class enterprise, with quality staff!
August 2012 - Graham, We are back in Sturgeon Bay, Wi. after a great rest of our cruise. We would like to THANK YOU for making us feel at ease during our stay on the hard. It was a pleasure to work with Dave. Your honest staff reflects the excellent management. Hope to stop by next year and say hi to all the wonderful people we met. Thanks again for you honesty and up front business style.
You can never quite gauge the quality of a marina until you have real problems. And as such I have upgraded Wright\'s to 5 stars. We whacked a rock coming through Rogers Cut, and sheared off the skegs completely and the props were completely mangled, with only one functional (partially). We continued to limp to Byng at 5 kts, while Graham and team came out to tow us in... They got us to a dock for the night and we were pulled out of the water first thing the next day (and this was on a Sat of a holiday weekend in Canada). The drives were a mess and the boat needed to stay. However our home port was 75 km south of Byng, and that\'s where our car was. The cab would be $150 flat rate, but Wright\'s offered us their car and all they asked for was a $1 deposit and that we pay for the gas we used... and this was no beater, it was their personal car. The team at Wright\'s went above and beyond what they needed to do and exceed all our expectations.2011: Easy access to pump dock. Well protected. Staff very nice. Place is very clean. Comfortable chairs to sit in while you are being serviced.
You have a very impressive staff.
They were very knowledgeable.
Thank you so much for the work you did on my engine. Whoever worked on it
did a beautiful job. Please thank that person.
