"The Toronto International Boat Show would like to thank you for generously donating the bluetooth speaker to the 2019 Preview Day.  It was a very generous item – thank you!

The evening was a true success raising thousands of dollars for the three specially selected children’s charities, Ontario Sailing (Able Sail, Access Boom Program), Toronto Star Fresh Air Fund and CNIB Lake Joe Summer Camp!  Since its inception, the Preview event continues to grow while helping more & more children.  This would not be possible without the help of generous people such as yourself!" - Toronto Boat Show Staff

"Thank you for your excellent service, responsiveness ans support throughout the recent season. Thanks also for your great dockside staff. It was evident they were well chosen and trained. Mechanical service staff were obviously experienced and did a thorough, professional job. I'm glad I was there on some instances and observed first hand." - Tery Poole

"Had major repairs to the running gear done here. The staff was great to work with, very professional, and they stood behind their work. The marina itself is very well maintained and close to downtown Belleville. Overall, a top notch operation." - Kevin O'Keefe

"I continue to be impressed with the customer service here at Crate Marine Belleville. I don't have the largest or most expensive boat in the marina, but Ryan treats everyone like the most important customer all the time. All summer he remembered my name, and always was welcoming to my kids, who were absolutely smitten with Ryan! His handling of my boat haul out and winterization was thorough and complete, and we now spend the next few months dreaming about next spring when we can return and spend our weekends at the marina. Thank you for a wonderful summer, Ryan." - Jeff Robbins

"Thanks again for everything Ryan, we really enjoyed our time at Crates.  You and your team run a top notch marina and we are proud to call Crates our summer home." - Vern Shepherd

"Hi Ryan, we are back in Toronto and would like to thank you and your staff for the HEAD MECHANIC work.  VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!!

First let me say that the staff you and Ryan have at the marina is second to none.  My wife and I love your facilities, and enjoy all the time we have spent and will be spending in the years to come.  This marina is the nicest facility we have stayed at in the last seven years we have been boating.” - Brad

“We have been boaters in the Quinte and Thousand Island water for over 35 years and visited most Ports from Toronto to Alex Bay along the way. We are delighted to have the new first class Crate Marine Belleville as our home port. It’s a boaters dream to come into Belleville harbor after a long day on the water to find pristine washrooms and all the necessary boating services, such as fuel and an experienced specialized mechanic on site. Best of all are the owner Ryan Crate and their other friendly and helpful staff who are professional caring experts in the boating world, there to provide outstanding and ready service whenever it is needed.” - Don & Helen Snider

“Just a Few Words of Appreciation to Everyone at Belleville Crates, In September of Last year I purchased at Boat at Another Marina. It “Did Not Run” but seemed like a great deal for the Money. I had it Trailered to Ryan at Crates in Belleville where we dock our other boat for the season. Ryan and his team were a great Help, they let us use there launch and tied the boat up to a slip for us so I could try and get her going. I am no mechanic and soon after my failed attempt to get her going I called on Ryan yet again to please see what they could do for me. It Wasn’t two days later I got the call she as all ready to go! Seems the last person to work on it messed up the firing order, with a quick scan, new plugs, cap, rotor and oil change she runs like a top! I couldn’t ask for any better Service.” - Steven Stewart

“A year ago my wife and I sold our sailboat and bought a Cruisers 340 Cruisers Express. Ryan and the team at Crate Marine Belleville provided us with advice on purchasing a motor boat to suit our needs, as well as, instruction and in boat training on the operation and systems new to us. We are senior boaters and appreciate the full-service of Crate’s which provides lift in and lift out, winterizing, shrink wrap, docking help and gas dock. They give us the confidence and year around peace of mind.” - Cliff & Yvonne Prentice

“In 2011 we bought our boat and moored for 3 years at Myers Pier. In 2013 we moved to the new Crates Marina and it has been a revelation. We have watched Ryan and the staff work incredibly hard to create something very special. Not only are they hard working and efficient but the facility offers us flexibility especially as we like to be the first in and last out of the water. On the social side we have made some real friends and those we see not only in the summer but throughout the year. This year we will continue to watch the growth with admiration.”
