Smith Mountain Lake Yacht Club LLC, doing business as Smith Mountain Marine Service & Sales (SMMS&S), is pleased to bring quality sales and service to this wonderful community.  SMMS&S is located in Crystal Shores Marina Resort on beautiful Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia.  The original Smith Mountain Yacht Club was founded in 1964 and had been under the management of the Arnold family for over 50 years. Now, carrying on this fine tradition, the service manager Peyton Canary and his SMMS&S staff are continuing to provide boat maintenance and sales in the same location that the service center has been in for the last 55 years.

Along with our service department, SMMS&S sells quality Berkshire Pontoons, Bayliner Boats and EZ Loader Adjustable Trailers.  We would be glad to talk to you about ordering your custom pontoon, boat or trailer!  Just call our sales department at 540.315.2690 (sales) for more information or a brochure on our new boats for sale!

Peyton Canary, owner of Smith Mountain Marine Service and Sales, started working at SMYC as a marine technician in 1997.  He has attended Mercury University every year and earned his master certification in both Mercury outboards and Mercruiser sterndrives.  He became service manager in 2000, but continued being a technician in addition to his service manager duties.  He has also attended other education opportunities with Yamaha and SeaRay.  Before beginning his career as a marine technician, he worked as a machinist and an automotive machinist in Arizona and Virginia.

All of the technicians have attended factory training or have years of experience with various makes and types of boats.  The mechanics attend Mercury University, both online and also classes in Atlanta, almost every year.  The technicians also have extensive experience with Sea Ray boats and Berkshire Pontoons because SMYC sold them for so many years.

We are also glad Carl Bowyer and his Straight Line Custom Canvas & Upholstery  shop are back home at SMMS&S.  It is great to be able to have his custom canvas and upholstery back in our shop so we can offer another service to you!  For a canvas or upholstery appointment, please call Carl at his phone number:  540.875.9343 (canvas shop phone number).

For an appointment for Smith Mountain Marine Service & Sales, or to order parts, please call 540.297.7692 (service phone number).  For boat and trailer sales, call 540.315.2690 (sales phone).
