Our Work


Boat Houses

At Crew Docks our docks are custom built and made to stand the test of time using only the best quality materials. We specialize in steel docks supported on galvanised steel posts, which are anchored into the bedrock below, which as well as providing the ultimate in durability and lifespan also causes the least possible amount of impact to both the environment and fish habitat.

Full Builds

Full Builds

From small additions and renovations to a complete build, we can do it all for you. From the excavation of the lot or demolition of the old structure, to the foundation, framing, plumbing, roofing, siding and interior finishing we do it all. We offer a full spectrum of packages from full “turnkey” to partial builds depending upon your requirements.

Boat Houses

Boat Houses

We specializes in the design and building of custom boatports and boathouses. From a basic frame boatport to Muskoka boathouses, we can help you design what suits your needs. Our boatports & boathouses are built on the same foundation as our docks, with a steel frame welded directly to the dock framework to support the roof system as well as any boat lifts.

Full Barge Service

Full Barge Service

With a capacity of 80 tonnes, our barge is very economical as we can move a large amount of material in just one trip thus saving the customer both time and expense. We also have a smaller barge for little jobs. We are registered with the BCIN for the design and installation of all classes of septic systems. We have all the equipment to do your “water access only” and land systems.



Using a Naylor Lift, we can design any lift option for your waterfront over heard. The most common lifts are Sea Doo, Dock Siders, and Hydraulic Hidden lifts. We are also promoting a yearly maintenance plan for your safety and up keep on the lift. Once a year Crew Docks would come and look at your lifts to ensure that everything is working correctly.

Drilling & Rock Removal

Drilling & Rock Removal

We are fully licenced and insured for “low explosive” rock removal. This system is much less destructive than the classic “high explosive” (dynamite) approach. As such it can be used in much closer proximity to neighbouring structures, etc. Also we offer a full line of services from construction of new roads, to summer and winter maintenance. From grading and culvert installations to winter snow plowing.
