The history of Payne Marine dates back to 1960, the year Vince Payne and his son Mike purchased the property presently known as Payne Marine Ltd. Together they worked hard, originally selling minnows and ice. Their dedication resulted in the installation of their first fuel tank in 1961. In 1967, a road was built allowing the marina to be accessible by both water and land. The business continued to flourish and in 1969, an engine franchise was opened. Success into the 70s allowed for a larger repair facility, additional docks, a storage building, and parking lots. In 1983, Yamaha outboards came aboard followed by Limestone boats in 1986. The 90s saw further growth, welcoming Mark Payne to the growing family business. Now with the strength of 3 dedicated generations, Payne Marine Ltd. has surpassed its own expectations and is growing continually to meet the requirements necessary to provide their customers with quality products and friendly service.
