Welcome to Ess-Kay Yards


About Us

We are located halfway, by boat, between Chicago and Miami on the beautiful Erie Canal System in central New York.

The NYS Canal System joins the Great Lakes with the Atlantic ocean. At Lock 23 on the Erie Canal, we are almost exactly at the center of the waterway.

Founded in 1968, Ess-Kay Yards has been built up to be one of the most complete large marina facilities on the Erie Canal. Ess-Kay Yards occupies the former marina facilities of Ace Boat Yard, a respected local Oneida Lake marine service and machine shop founded in the late 1930s.

Family owned and operated by the George E. Mann family, the marina has a long tradition of quality service, warmth and hospitality. The tradition continues today as Kim, George's daughter, helps guide the marina into the twenty-first century.

WE ARE OPEN YEAR ROUND - seven days (Easter to Thanksgiving). During the off-season, please call for our schedule.
