ABOUT US

Propeller Basin Marina is in beautiful Anchor Bay on Lake St. Clair. We are located in Chesterfield Township on Jefferson Ave. less than three minutes from the 21 Mile Road exit off I-94. Our facility is at the mouth of Salt River on Timber Creek. Unlike inland marinas, we are a stone’s throw away from the lake. With minimal river traffic to negotiate, you will be cruising on Anchor Bay within a few short minutes after casting off. We are a certified Mercruiser dealer with 20 ton hoists and 7 acres of storage space. Our Mercruiser licensed service staff has over 50 years of experience and is equipped to address any repairs you might encounter.

History

We’ve come a very long way! Propeller Basin Marina was started in 1955 on the Timber Creek tributary of the Salt River in Chesterfield Township. Our company has been family owned and operated since its founding, and we are proud to have retained ownership through the years along with the economic ups and downs of our fine state. As a family of carpenters, our early days were spent repairing wood hulls and decks, or building them from scratch. These days, we are just as dedicated to servicing any and all modern boating needs. In 2010, Propeller Basin acquired neighboring Kenny’s Marina. With competitive storage prices (we will match any written offer), a longstanding service reputation, and a soft spot for the guy just starting out, we hope to continue improving and growing for many years to come.

About Anchor Bay and Chesterfield

The township of Chesterfield was founded in 1842 and was first settled by the Ojibwa/Chippewa tribes over 10,000 years ago. Although currently named for an Englishman, the earliest European settlers of the Salt River area were Frenchman who named their lakeside establishment “Saline”. They flourished in the area due to trapping and trading salt from the river with neighboring townships. The land where Propeller Basin currently stands is pictured below and was the spot of the original French settlements. Presently, Chesterfield proudly remains an important part of the largest boating community per capita in the entire world, with some of the best walleye and perch fishing on the planet right in our backyard.

WELL MAP

Our wells are located on Timber Creek at the mouth of the Salt River. Larger wells are all perpendicular to the river with plenty of room to navigate. Smaller wells are in the middle lagoon.


WINTER STORAGE

When it comes to winter storage, Propeller Basin understands the value of protecting your investment. For 40 years, we have prided ourselves on our low rates. We will match any written quote, have flexible payment plans, and our shrink wrapping rates have been among the lowest in Anchor Bay since we began offering the service. There are no hidden costs, small print, or garbage/shrink wrap service fees that show up on your contract at larger marinas.

As the season ends and boat pulling begins, boaters can choose outdoor or indoor storage. Our facility has two spacious storage buildings to protect your boat from the elements. Our staff is on site year round and keeps watch over snow build up and cover tears all winter long. We also offer full winterization for engines, generators, and water systems. With over 7 acres of property, our customers enjoy ample space for parking near their boat when spring boat preparation season comes around…no hauling equipment and ladders between a maze of boats
