The addition of Kawartha Prop Repair in 1980 added a significant dimension to the meaning of “Full Service Marina” for Buckhorn Yacht Harbour Ltd. Established in the early 1960s by Orville Smith, the once one man shop is now known as Kawartha Propeller with a staff of 19 employees and 9 pickup and delivery circuits across Ontario. We travel weekly to service and supply propellers, lower units, and inboard hardware to over 250 marinas and individual boaters alike.

The precision and quality of repair that goes into each and every item has led to an ever-growing reputation that is generously supported by word of mouth. Repairs will match or exceed original performance levels, as is so often mentioned by our satisfied customers. It is this skill and reputation that has contributed to our ranking as Canada’s leading propeller repair facility; a family owned and operated business spanning three generations.
