BRANDS

Georgian Shores Marina Owen Sound is proud to be an authorized dealer of Starcraft aluminum and fishing boats. Whether you choose one of our stock boats or custom order it. We will find the right fishing boat for you. These aluminum fishing boats are perfect for Georgian Bay and surrounding waters.

Starcraft fishing boats are as tough as the die-hards that rely on them. That’s because we turned to the pros for advice.

Both our aluminum and fiberglass fishing boats are designed and built with input from professional fishermen – the guys who are out there every day and know what it takes to be a winner.

Starcraft fishing boats are NMMA Certified and meet or exceed all U.S. Coast Guard requirements. But we take it even further. Our fiberglass boats are painstakingly constructed to the most exacting standards for industry-leading quality and rugged durability. And, we only use the toughest aluminum out there – 5052 H34 marine grade – so our aluminum boats resist dents, dings and corrosion. Finally, we apply a multi-step painting and finishing process to every boat we make, so you look good while you’re reeling them in, season after season.

  1. HEAVY GAUGE ALUMINUM is de-coiled into flat sheets that are ready to be cut, bent and molded for production.
  2. CNC ROUTED parts are cut out on a CNC router to the exact dimensions to fit perfectly into every boat.
  3. ONE-PIECE ALUMINUM BOTTOM is folded and molded to the greatest intrinsic shape.
  4. RIVETED for superior strength, allowing the flexing needed for a smooth, dry ride.
  5. 5052 H34 Marine grade 100 gauge aluminum resists dents, dings and corrosion for years of reliability.
  6. THROUGH BOLTED TRANSOM BRACES are through-bolted through the transom to allow for the high horsepower engines.
  7. POWER-TRAC HULL® Our shock-absorbing Power-Trac Hull® combines longitudinal, machine-formed ribs with Starcraft’s exclusive Torsion Beam Construction (TBC) stringer system that flexes with the waves instead of against them, providing greater strength and a smoother ride.
  8. 7-LAYER PLYWOOD FLOORS injected with urethane foam deliver maximum buoyancy, and all carpet and vinyl is installed with spray adhesive to avoid any loose fitting materials.
  9. FULL PAINTED HULLS are first primed before painted and twice baked to provide showroom looks for years to come.
  10. ALL DECALS are installed by hand, giving the boat a finished look that is unmatched.

Georgian Shores Marina Owen Sound is your local authorized Highfield Dinghy dealer. Highfield’s are a premium R.I.B.S. These aluminum inflatable boats are light weight and durable. Highfield dinghy’s range in size from 8 feet to over 21 feet. Add a console to experience the ultimate ride on the water.

Design

Highfield inflatables have evolved from many years of development in some of the toughest conditions in the world, the Great Barrier Reef of tropical Northern Australia. They are a direct descendant of the Australian Swift range of aluminum hulled RIBs now in service for over 20 years.

Swift has supplied boats for leisure as well as professional uses with most of Australia’s Water Police and government agencies having a number of Swift RIBs in their fleet.
Tough, reliable and thoroughly tested, Highfield comes to you with a champions pedigree.

Environment
When producing our boats, we use processes that are non-polluting and conserve energy and natural resources, making it economically sound and safe for employees, communities and consumers.

We make efforts to chose the right materials not only to build the Highfield boats tough and durable but also to make them environmentally friendly.

 

LIGHT WEIGHT
The Highfield aluminium hulls bring strength and light weight to the boats. As a consequence the boats require less horse power to propel them which means smaller outboard engine for same propulsion, lower fuel consumption and less CO2 emission.

 

ALUMINIUM
Aluminium recycling is the process by which scrap aluminium can be reused in products after its initial production. The process involves simply re-melting the metal, which is far less expensive and energy intensive than creating new aluminium. Recycling scrap aluminium requires only 5% of the energy used to make new aluminium. The nature of aluminium makes the material one of the few “infinitely recyclable” materials used in society; it can be recycled infinitely with no loss in quality.

 

POWDER COATING
It is a paint in powder form which is electrically charged as it is sprayed onto a surface to be coated and then baked in an oven, where the powder particles melt and fuse into a smooth coating. The result is a uniform, durable, high quality environmentally safe and attractive finish.

 

There are several advantages of powder coating over conventional liquid coatings:
– No volatile organic compounds
– No solvents, meaning reduced fire risk, reduced risk in application and disposal of waste
– Powder can easily be recycled as extraction systems gather excess powder
– Raw material research has produced powders that can be cured at lower temperatures meaning lower energy consumption
– Thermosetting powder coatings often have higher chemical / physical resistance – reducing cost and fuel consumption involved in transportation and storage.

Georgian Shores Marina Owen Sound is an authorized dealer for Mercury and Mercruiser motors. These powerful, light weight 4 stroke motors will get you on plain quickly and keep you on the water in all conditions. Whether you are looking for a portable motor or a Mercury Verado Georgian Shores Marina has the motor for you.

 

FourStroke

Pro XS®
When it comes to performance, a Pro XS gets you there like no other outboard. Maybe it’s the lightning-quick acceleration . The class-leading top speed. The legendary reliability. The superior fuel efficiency. Or all of the above. Pro XS – the most serious outboard on the water for the most serious fishermen on the water. Whether you’re chasing trophy fish, or just trophies.

 

Verado®
Verado outboards have created a whole new set of standards for performance. No matter how you define it. Low noise and vibration? Check. Lower fuel consumption? Check. Supercharged four-stroke power and torque? Check. Everything. And then some. Verado.

OptiMax offers the time-proven power, reliability and fuel efficiency that only the Mercury-exclusive two-stage Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) can deliver. Outstanding hole shot and acceleration, impeccable handling at any speed. Even with all this, it’s still your best value on the water.

Georgian Shores Marina Owen Sound is your authorized Evinrude motor dealer. Evinrude is changing the way motors look and feel. These 2 stroke motors are the most advanced in the industry. The G2 Evinrude is the most powerful motor in its class. From the stylish look of the G2 to the colour coordinated panels to match your boat. Evinrude motors simply out perform the competition.

 

TWO STROKE TECHNOLOGY

E-TEC is a direct injection two-stroke system controlled by an engine management module. This means an exact amount of fuel/oil is injected directly into the cylinder. Old two-stroke engines produce high exhaust emissions from unburned fuel that escapes with the exhaust.

 

WHAT IS DIRECT INJECTION?
It is a fuel-delivery technology that allows gasoline engines to burn more efficiently, resulting in more power, cleaner emissions, and increased fuel economy. Direct injection is such a superior technology, that almost every major car manufacturer includes this as part of their engine strategy.

 

EVINRUDE FUEL INJECTORS
The fuel injector design requires less operating current to activate, meaning we are able to use smaller electronics which operate at cooler temperatures. Cooler running electronics equals more durability.

 

NASA INNOVATION
NASA-developed aluminum alloy enhances the Evinrude E-TEC engine’s durability two times stronger than conventional alloys. The space-age material significantly extends piston lifespan and enables higher wear resistance and greater stability at high temperatures. Engineers also saw environmental advantages from this alloy.

 

ENGINE MANAGEMENT MODULE
Just like any rope start motor, the E-TEC engine generates its own electricity. It is a computer controlled fuel injection system that delivers amazing fuel efficiency, instant throttle response, smooth quiet performance, and unparalleled hydrocarbon emissions.

 

E-TEC G2 TECHNOLOGY
In addition to the advanced direct injection technology, we invented the revolutionary Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard engine.
