From humble beginnings starts the Reeb Legacy in the powersports world.
The patriarch of the Reeb Family, Gordon Reeb, came from a small Ontario town where he learned his trade from a young age. His dedication to his work was second to none, and it showed in everything he did. From the days of working for the Ford Motor Company, honing his skills as a gunsmith mechanic, to owning his own fishing camp and finally opening his own dealership with his son Robin, Gordon always repeated one single mantra - service is our specialty.
That mantra is what drives his family at Robin’s Marine to this day. Grandpa Gord may not be with us any longer, but his love of powersports lives on, generation after generation. Gordon’s youngest son, Robin, took to boat motors and snowmobiles from a young age and soon followed in his dad’s footsteps. Learning from one of a handful of master mechanics proved fruitful, as Robin became the youngest Certified Marine Technician in Mercury Marine’s history in 1972, at the early age of 14. Since those days, learning his trade, Robin has amassed 47 years of experience as a Certified Technician.
Through business successes and pitfalls, Robin has seen it all and experienced it all. Now nearing retirement, he’s fondly remembering his apprenticeship days by passing along his knowledge to the younger generations. From racing to wrenching, Robin has brought up his kids to learn the values instilled in him so many years ago. Now his grandkids are even getting in on the action as aspiring racers and gearheads, working side by side with Grandpa (Papa) Robin. We are truly a family-run business.
Robin’s Marine & Snowmobile Service specializes in those rare and hard to find pieces. 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s outboards are as strong running today as they were when they were new. So when you need that one-off part that you think you’ll never find, make sure to give us a call, and chances are we can get you back up and running just like new. We also work on anything and everything outboard and inboard, from then until the current models. As a full-service repair shop, Robin and his team offer winterizing and summerizing services, no matter how big or little your boat and motor are. In the winter months, Robin’s Marine & Snowmobile Service turns into the biggest snowmobile salvage yard in BC. Hundreds of snowmobiles in stock means thousands of parts at our disposal. Call today and you could be surprised by what we might just have. Don’t forget though; we don’t just deal in used parts, but an array of new parts are also available from more than half a dozen business partners, bringing you many of the name brands you’ve grown to love and trust.
Come down to our renovated showroom today and see for yourself. We’d be happy to serve you, because after all, Grandpa Gord’s mantra, of service being our specialty, rings true to this day.
