On April 1st, 2021, Wright’s Marina joined two other small, independent facilities: Hindson Marina in Penetanguishene and Killbear Marina near Parry Sound.

It’s a family affair: From left to right:

Kelly Hindson has purchased Wright’s Marina; he has a hands-on approach that Wright’s customers are familiar with. Kelly feels that “Wright’s is a great addition to Hindson’s and Killbear; the location and the family-feel of the marina just fit so well. We want to keep things the way they’ve been run, we aren’t going to make a bunch of changes or take away the qualities that make Wright’s what it is.”

While many things will remain the same, we aim to progress the marina in the near future through updates and ways to improve your overall experience! We also invite you to take advantage of the reciprocal marina benefits and come down to Killbear & Hindson’s to meet more of our team and enjoy all we have to offer!

“We’re pleased to be bringing Madi Lacey back to Wright’s Marina in the role of General Manager; she will represent the fourth generation of the Wright family within the Marina.” Madi brings years of first-hand knowledge gained through her upbringing and hands-on training in various areas of Wright’s Marina, as well as an Intermediate Marina Management designation obtained through the Association of Marina Industries. She returns after a year and a half period at the Boating Ontario Association, which has further equipped her for her new position and provided her with invaluable knowledge of the marine industry.

The crews at Wright’s, Hindson’s, and Killbear look forward to continuing the same personal, friendly service. ycontact a member of the team at or Kelly directly at
Happy boating!

Expanding every few years for the store front, then moving over to this new building five years ago, this year with Adam, Shelley, and Holly are carrying on the business.
