Company Info

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.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats.

To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
