Port Carmen Marina Plans July 4 Grand Opening Under New Ownership

Located on the pristine shores of Lake Cecebe, Port Carmen Marina has come under new management. The 30-slip marina (with two docks for transient visitors), is about a 15-minute drive northwest of Burk's Falls, Ontario.

A grand opening in recognition of the marina's new leadership will kick off on July 4, running from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Rick Layzell, one of the marina's Co-owners says 10 vendors have already confirmed their attendance at the opening, where the marina will offer special deals for customers and give away free T-shirts.

"It's going to be a bit of a show and a whole lot of fun,' says Layzell. We're praying for cooperative weather.'

Port Carmen Marina sells new and used boats, and is a dealer of Mercury Marine outboards. Boaters will find the marina offers fuel, parts and boating accessories as well as provides mechanical repair services and boat storage.

Shaw's Catering will be overseeing the event's barbecue lunch. For more information on the marina click here.
