Sturgeon Point Marina Staff
Updated January 20, 2019
Bob Holley - Owner / Manager
Bob purchased Sturgeon Point Marina in September 1968 at the age of nineteen with the support of his parents Jack and Doris Holley. Since then under his guidance Sturgeon Point Marina has grown from a small one building shop, into a large five acre bustling marina which includes a large showroom, many buildings, a vast selection of boats, seadoos, jet boats and over two hundred motors, an extensive shop able to handle any project, four boat storage buildings, a launch ramp and docking for over one hundred and thirty boats. As the owner he has always strived to keep Sturgeon Point Marina a family run business. His wife Susan helps him take care of the paperwork while his two sons Charles and Edward have taken after his love of motors and spend most of their days working in the shop.
