  • Exposure to used boat buyers through our New Boat Sales channels- many of our brokerage sales start with clients we meet at boat shows, at our dealership or who find us online while looking at new boats.
  • Full Service Dealership and Brokerage- we can service what we sell with our highly skilled and factory trained technicians. And of course we help coordinate surveys, mechanical inspections, transportation / delivery, and arrange driving lessons and US export assistance.
  • Exclusive Dealer-only financing services offering great rates and flexible payment options that other brokers can't provide. We can offer your boat for sale with financing options.
  • We are a long-standing, Bricks-and-Mortar company with high ethical standards and the infrastructure necessary to maximize the sales opportunity for your boat.
  • Full-Service locations in Orillia and Midland – much more than just a briefcase and phone.
  • We buy boats. We have the ability to buy quality, late-model boats and consider trade-ins on your listing to maximize your selling options and opportunities. If a prospect has a trade on your boat, we have the ability to potentially take a trade to make the deal.
  • We are open for business all year long , and our high-profile locations in Orillia and Midland are staffed 7 days a week during the busy boating season for maximum exposure. Our locations have dedicated Sales Displays, in-water and on land, providing a true boat buying destination.

Whether buying or selling, Crate's Lake Country Boats can handle all of your brokerage needs. We have a full time staff of 6 Certified Sales Professionals with brokerage offices on Lake Simcoe and Georgian Bay. Our head office is located at the Atherley Narrows in Orillia, Ontario with a satellite sales office at Wye Heritage Marina in Midland, Ontario. These high-traffic locations are well known to boat buyers and this ensures our listings receive a high degree of in-person exposure!

Crate's specializes in fresh water boats and has some of the best boats for sale in Ontario. Our brokerage list isn't the longest but that's because we're picky about what we sell! With so many boats for sale across North America, we know it's daunting for buyers to try and sift through the junk to find a good boat at a fair price. At Crate's Lake Country Boats we try and take the guess work out of the process so you can buy with confidence.

We know Canadian boaters want to buy local boats with local service histories and inspected by local surveyors, but only if the price is competitive. That's where our Boating Ontario Certified Sales Professionals excel. The Crate's team knows how to guide sellers with detailed market evaluations and sound advice on how to be competitive in a competitive market. We also go the extra mile to advise buyers on how to identify a quality boat and a fair price; because experience shows a low asking price doesn't necessarily mean a good deal.
