MARINA YACHT CLUB

Krates Marina

Cottage Country 30 Minutes from the Subway

Story | Andy Adams

C

anadians are blessed when it comes to access to the
water and to the boating lifestyle. In centres like Victoria, Vancouver, Halifax, Montreal and Toronto, you
can literally take a city bus to the marina or yacht club.
Ontario and Quebec especially, enjoy an abundance of what
we call cottage country, with smaller, more sheltered lakes and
countryside scenery. Krates Marina in Keswick, Ontario on the
south east side of Lake Simcoe, is a gateway to cottage country
boating, yet it is very close to Toronto and the GTA. I live in
Keswick, just a few blocks from the entrance to Krates and I can
drop my kids at the Don Mills subway station in 30 minutes from
my driveway. Thanks to the recently opened Hwy #404 extension,
Krates Marina is conveniently located for all 2.8 million GTA
residents, yet it enjoys the peace and quiet of the country.

The marina is like an oasis in the town of Keswick. It's a large
parcel of lake front property well away from the roads and traffic
although you can easily walk to stores and restaurants.
The summer of 2020 is going to be special at Krates Marina.
The property was first developed as a fishing boat livery back in
1930. That was 90 years ago and a lot has happened since then!
The owners, Benn Spiegel and his partner took the marina
over five years ago and they attribute the success of Krates today,
to the team of people they assembled to execute their vision for
what the marina could be. Enthusiastic boaters themselves, they
talked to their resident boaters to learn what they wanted in their
marina. The answers were that they wanted a marina that treated
them with respect and that gave them an environment that really
promoted boating enjoyment.
