Canadian Marina and Resort Up For Sale

Sea Rover Resort and Marina in Jeddore, NS is up for sale. Located within a 45-minute drive of downtown Halifax, the sale includes the 26-slip full-service marina, a restaurant and a nine-room inn all located on 11 acres of waterfront property on Jeddore Harbour.

"The marina's property used to be a defense research facility,' explains Owner, Paul Wrathall on why he's selling his business. "We designed military systems but I sold that business to a multinational defense contractor and retired. I set up the marina and it's a beautiful place, but I'm going back into the defense sector. I missed it and I'm too young to retire. However, to get back into the defense sector I'm likely going to need to leave the province.'

The business includes four buildings that encompass the five-star inn with 500-square foot rooms; clubhouse with fitness centre, heated saltwater swimming pool and restaurant; and a boat service centre with a 45- by 15-foot service bay equipped with 22-foot doors. The marina includes 1,000 feet of seawall, an 80-foot wharf with floating docks, and a fuel dock offering gas and diesel.

Equipment being sold with the business includes a Con-o-lift Y-15 sling lift capable of handling a 44-foot boat up to 30,000 lbs. and a JCB telehandler for use with the lift.

The sale also includes land on an adjacent waterfront lot, which Wrathall believes would be a great place to build condos.

"Anyone who knows what they're looking at and knows what we're asking at $3.5 million will recognize that there's a lot of value there,' says Wrathall. "The property has room for expansion but at the same time is not ‘big and empty'. It's the kind of place in the summer time that's very active, which creates a great environment when you visit.'

Wrathall has his business listed with Royal LePage. For more information contact Al MacDonald at (902) 488-1310 or visit
