Crowley’s Yacht Yard has been serving the boating community since 1978 when Grant Crowley and Bruce Rosenzweig founded our first yard located on the south branch of the Chicago River. Several years ago the yard relocated to the Calumet River at 95th Street. Since its founding, Crowley's philosophy has been simple - provide a quality product at a fair price. Crowley's has grown to become one of the country's largest full service boat yards with skilled riggers, mechanics, carpenters, installers, and fiberglass technicians on staff year round. Crowley's operates a full line Ship's Store on site. Additionally, Crowley's On-line Store offers an extensive selection of marine hardware and soft goods to customers worldwide. Crowley's facility covers over 25 acres and handles both sail and powerboats of all shapes and sizes. We have over 800 feet of deep water dock space with indoor and outdoor storage options for over 1400 boats. There is over 200,000 square feet of indoor storage with 100,000 square feet of that space heated. We are able to haul, service and store boats up to 80 feet long weighing up to 35 tons. Crowley's operates two 35 ton Marine Travelifts, a 20,00 pound marina forklift and a 40 ton rough terrain crane to serve boaters needs. Crowley's commitment to the boating community does not stop at the gate. Crowley's actively supports the marine community with outreach programs that help a variety of marine related charities. Crowley's supports the Judd Goldman Adaptive Sailing Foundation, Nautical Donations, The Chicago Maritime Society, The Chicago Yacht Club Foundation, The Chester Kuttner Foundation, Friends of the Chicago River, and the Chicago Area Sea Scouts.

I called them for service on my boat and they were horribly expensive. I had the work done by skipper buds for 1/2 the price.

I don't review many businesses. However I felt that I needed to write another review for Crowley's yacht yard based upon my service this past weekend. For people reading this in the future, this past weekend was when Chicago got hit by 60 mile-per-hour plus wins and the Bears game was delayed two hours because of storms. I brought my boat to Crowleys on Saturday to be hauled on Monday for winter storage. I had secured it to their docks and as always didn't even give it a second thought. Fast forward to Sunday morning and the forecast for possible tornados. I immediately went to the yacht yard and added more dock lines to secure my boat. Realize that not only is this boat my passion, it is also my business. Fast forward to Monday morning. I go back down to Crowley's to check on my boat. Not only has she weathered the storm perfectly, Marco(a Crowley's employee) had taken it upon himself to put down extra fenders to ensure I would not sustain hull damage from being slammed against the dock. It is this attention to detail and them caring for my boat(s) as if they were their own that has kept me and will keep me a customer for as long as I keep a boat on Lake Michigan.
