Crowley’s has Moved to Serve You Better

Crowley’s Yacht Yard Lakeside, LLC. has recently moved to Chicago’s southeast side on the Calumet River, just off Lake Michigan. At the new 25-acre facility, Crowley’s is prepared to serve their existing and expanding customer base with one of the largest and most progressive boat yards in the country.

Grant Crowley, summarizes the key benefits of the new location: “It is larger, in Chicago, and has great access to Lake Michigan. It is a very interesting and nice location on the southeast side.” Being just a short sail from the Chicago Harbors, and having no locks with only two bridges that are operated 24 hours, seven days a week, gives convenient access by water. By land, the new location is quickly accessible by Lake Shore Drive or from the new 92nd Street exit off the Chicago Skyway.

Crowley’s has expanded their Storage Facility, Ship’s Store, and ABYC Certified Service staff. “The service is more efficient,” says Crowley.

Some benefits of the new facility include over 200,000 sf of indoor storage space, over 20 acres of paved outside storage, deep water docks, additional customer parking, and larger 90 foot service bays.

Crowley’s stores over 800 boats from 28 to 55 feet in length. Their six heated work bays can accommodate up to 50' boats for fiberglass repairs year round. Crowley’s also has six full time mechanics with over 75 years experience in the marine field. Additionally, they offer one of the finest rigging shops in the county, electronics installations, refits, and a state of the art paint shop.

The Ship’s Store is a complete full line marine store, offering the highest quality gear from the leading manufacturers.
