Marine Crate Engines Canada

Precision Built Marine Engines In Stock Ready To Ship

The last thing you want when you’re out on the water is to have engine troubles.

Perhaps your existing engine has limited hours left on it and you need a rebuild, or a severe winter has left you with a cracked block and heads. We’ve got you covered.

Experts in marine repowering and rebuilding for over 30 years in Vancouver BC.

The machining and assembly experts at Canadian Crate Engines can help you get back on the water with full confidence in your boat’s boat engine so you can relax knowing you’ll get to where you want to go without any engine problems.

All marine engines are built to the highest quality standards, using the highest quality parts.

We offer ready to go packages for Chevrolet, Ford, and Chrysler marine engines.

We also have options for:

  • Mercruiser
  • Volvo Penta
  • Indmar
  • Crusader

We have precision built marine engines in stock and ready to ship.

Our entire marine division crate motors are built using the highest quality parts (no offshore parts whatsoever) and to exacting marine specifications.

Each engine is precision balanced (to reduce strain on internal components under prolonged RPM) and each engine is thoroughly dyno tested before it is shipped to you.

A boat engine is similar to a truck hauling a load driving up a steep hill – it’s under a severe load at all times.

This requires specific engine clearances and tolerances in order to dissipate heat and accommodate for the abuse marine engines take.

We have over 30 years of experience in the marine industry so make no mistake, we are the marine crate motor experts.

We offer ready to ship crate engines for most makes and models of marine engine. Check out our stock list below. If you don’t see your engine listed, please contact us and we will find an option that works for your needs!
