VILLAGE OF BALDWINSVILLE – Steve Case and son Steve Jr. buy the former Cooper’s Marina
Steve Case, Jr. was very familiar with the 65 year old marina in Baldwinsville. Growing up on Plainville Rd. he would drive by Cooper’s Marina on the way to school and frequently during the week. In 2021, as owner of Acropolis Real Estate, Steve Jr. learned about a “marina for sale” from one of his property managers –and that marina was in Baldwinsville! “Most of the inquiries were about the real estate and not the marina or multiple houses that were part of the package”, he said. “It caught my interest – I wanted to keep the marina going. I called in my dad, Steve Sr. and asked him to be a partner and at first he said no thank you – but later agreed to partner with me.”
Both father and son were born and educated in Baldwinsville. A big focus for Case Marina will be customer service and being an active sponsor of the community. “We’re local and want to give back to the community,” said Steve Sr. “We will be a major sponsor for the upcoming Seneca River Days in June with boats in the water at the event. “
Since becoming owners in February 2022 renovations have been ongoing. Phase 1 was to get the docks in. “The docks and slips are all brand new construction that was done right,” said Steve Sr.
“Next we remodeled and redesigned the showroom with a ‘Ship Store’ featuring coolers, skis, toys, tow ropes and much much more – it’s really a must see! Expansion is in the plans for storage also. We have multiple storage facilities on and off premises to accommodate 300 boats and are looking to expand that capacity.”
Case Marina will put a renewed interest in boat sales. “We wanted to choose boats that have great value and fit people’s budgets,” said Steve Sr. We have 4 new franchises including Bently pontoons, Qwest pontoons and tritoons, Carolina Skiff hybrid fishing / family boats and Sea Chaser larger hybrid fishing / family boats. We are also stocked with every imaginable part and accessory for every boat – every engine.”
Case Marina will continue to be well known for expert service repairs by certified trained technicians with over 30 years combined boat experience. The service team includes Rod Czirr, Gary Czirr, Nick Byrnes and Dave Rizzo. They also have a very popular detail shop!
Managers Tim Ditterline and Matt Fragale will assist you in the showroom that is open Monday and Friday 9-5, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 9-6 and Saturday 9-4.
