The company has been in operation at its present location since 1965. The current ownership has been in place since 1985. The R.W.

Our company operates a full-service 112-slip marina, new and used boat dealer­ship, service facility, gas dock, ships store, and boat storage facility on a 28-acre waterfront location on Grand Island, NY. Grand Island is the largest freshwater island in the United States, situated on the Niagara River, halfway between Buffalo and Niagara Falls. We are an award-winning facility recognized for national and international awards from various boat manu­facturers, marine retailing associations, lift manufacturers, and the EZ Dock worldwide corporation.

Greater Lakes EZ Dock:

The company was formed as EZ Dock of WNY in 2006 as a full-service EZ Dock dealership serving the extreme western end of NY State, primarily Erie and Niagara counties. Since 2006 the company has grown rapidly and completed over 300 designs and installations in the WNY area. We have been a worldwide leader in the design, development, and sales of the “EZ Launch” kayak and canoe launch product. In 2009, EZ Dock of WNY became a distributor and expanded to 12 WNY counties. In the fall of 2010, we were awarded substantial additional territory in Central New York, Western Pennsylvania and Northern Ohio, and the new multi-state distribution company of Greater Lakes EZ Dock was born.

Our territory encompasses the Lake Erie shoreline, Lake Ontario shoreline, the Niagara River, Erie Canal, the Finger Lakes, Conneaut Lake, Atwood Lake, Lake Chautauqua, Cuba Lake, Lime Lake, Rushford Lake, Findley Lake, and literally thousands of smaller lakes, rivers, streams, and ponds across these three Great Lakes states. We are blessed with beautiful and countless recreational waterways.

Greater Lakes EZ Dock has a full-time staff of five people and a combined administrative and technical support staff of four additional personnel: two designers/estimators, one crew chief, and two installers. We maintain a 40’ x 100' warehouse in Grand Island, NY that is stocked with materials for every possible dock configuration. Additionally, we maintain a fleet of trucks, trailers, workboats, and lifting equipment that allows us to handle any size construction project relating to marinas, docks, boat lifts, PWC lifts, or kayak or canoe launches.
