Bluewater has acquired Oceanos Marine Solutions

Bluewater Oceanos is Bluewater’s fifth location in BC and will continue a long tradition of quality boat service for North Vancouver and West Vancouver boaters

(Vancouver BC) With the acquisition of Oceanos Marine Solutions, Bluewater is expanding its marine service and parts capability for North Vancouver and West Vancouver boaters.  The group will operate as Bluewater Oceanos continuing to serve existing Oceanos clients with all their marine mechanical needs.  In addition, Oceanos’ north shore boaters will benefit from an expanded list of services including marine electrical, electronics, bottom-paint, polishing and everything in between.

“I have a huge amount of respect for how founder Steve Tyliakos valued a long term relationship with his clients,” said Bluewater CEO Chad Garrod. “This aligns exactly with our approach at Bluewater and we are honoured to carry on the Oceanos tradition of providing good service for north shore boaters needing a good boat mechanic at a fair price.  Steve has built a strong capability in North Vancouver in marine engine service, repairs and repowers including diesel, gas, and repair on Zeus pods and Volvo IPS drives.”

With the Oceanos acquisition, Bluewater will be an authorized dealer and service centre for industry leading manufacturers like Mercury, Mercruiser, Cummins, Onan, Konrad, Sleipner (formerly Side-Power) and Zeus pods.  Bluewater Oceanos operates in the Lions Gate Marine Centre with comprehensive facilities including Bluewater’s Seakeeper Dock and haul-outs for indoor and outdoor boat work and boat storage.      

The Bluewater Oceanos branding will be consistent with the existing Bluewater look and feel.

Since 1999, Bluewater has been working on BC yachts, pleasure boats and work boats of all sizes. With a team of 45 people including Interprovincial Red Seal endorsed electricians, ITA certified marine mechanics, and Quadrant Marine Institute marine service technicians, Bluewater is focused on providing the best boat service experience in BC and beyond.
