The Province of New Brunswick owns three Marine Service Centres located in Shippagan, Bas-Caraquet and Grand Manan. Those facilities have attended to the needs of the local boat owners since the 1980's.
The Centres offer lift, launching and storage services as well as other related services for boats weighing up to 200 tons in Shippagan and Grand Manan and 300 tons in Bas-Caraquet. They serve mostly the traditional fishing and aquaculture sectors but also accommodate pleasure crafts, commercial boats and service vessels.
