Anglers Anchorage Marina
DTZ Barnicke is pleased to present this rare opportunity to acquire a large and wellestablished marina operation on the periphery of Victoria, BC. Anglers Anchorage Marina
benefits from an ideal location within Brentwood Bay, just a short 20 minute drive to
downtown Victoria. The Marina is located on the western shore of the Saanich Peninsula
where it enjoys magnificent southwest ocean and mountain views across Finlayson Arm to
Malahat Mountain. The subject is comprised of an upland parcel (currently used for
parking) of 0.75 acres and a long term provincial aquatic land lease of about 5 acres.
The calm and protected shores of the Saanich Inlet and particularly Brentwood Bay have
long been home to several marinas that line its shore. Anglers Anchorage Marina itself has
a long history of use as an anchorage and more recently as a marina, having previously
operated under the names of Anchorage Tea Garden and Anchorage Boathouse.
Brentwood Bay
Looking towards Brentwood Bay
The subject property is ideally located in Brentwood Bay within the municipality of Central
Saanich. This predominantly rural community is home to roughly 16,000 residents and is
favorably positioned between the picturesque Haro Strait to the east and Saanich Inlet to
the west, while just a short 20 minute drive to downtown Victoria, 15 minute drive to the
Victoria International Airport, and a 5 minute drive to beautiful Butchart Gardens.
Butchart Gardens is the region’s most powerful tourist attraction and the economic and
aesthetic focal point of Central Saanich. Drawing close to one million visitors annually, it is
ranked the 3rd busiest tourist destination in the Province and the most popular tourist
attraction on Vancouver Island.
Brentwood Bay Village offers excellent accommodation, waterfront restaurants and all
amenities within its vibrant neighbourhood commercial centre. The Village is rapidly
developing and has recently undergone some significant street beautification upgrades.
The property itself benefits from stunning ocean views and its proximity to amenities. It is
located within a largely residential neighbourhood consisting of both single family and multifamily dwellings. Brentwood Bay and the Inlet area are popular for boating, kayaking,
fishing and diving.

Site and Improvement Description
The property offers a combination of marine commercial and restaurant uses with potential
for steady income growth. The subject comprises an upland fee simple lot in addition to an
aquatic land lease in Brentwood Bay.
The upland parcel (Lot 1) is paved and serves as the parking lot for the marina. It can hold
about 85 vehicles and is approximately 0.75 acres in size. Accessed off of Grilse Lane, the
lot is irregularly shaped and slopes gently downward from north to south. The new Marina
Services Building is located on the south side of the parking lot at the waters edge.
The 30 year aquatic land lease from the Province of BC comprises 2 lots totaling
approximately 5 acres with about 5,000 lineal feet of moorage within the boundaries. The
original term of the lease is set to expire in 2022, though a new 30 year lease has been
applied for and is expected to be granted in 2008.
At present, a significant upgrade program is underway which will completely transform
Anglers Anchorage Marina. Upon completion (scheduled October 2008), the subject
property will benefit from substantially rebuilt docks with the majority of wharves and fingers
having new cedar wood decking, as well as being re-secured with “screwed-in” pilings.
Upgrades have also been undertaken to provide electrical service, municipal water, and
sewage hook-up to each individual slip. In addition, an attractive new 1100 square foot
Marina Services Building is under construction and will contain a managers office, lounge,
laundry facilities, and 4 washrooms and showers. Finally, the plan anticipates significantly
upgraded landscaping, walkway and parking facilities.

Site and Improvement Description Continued
LOT 13
Improvements constructed upon a portion of the leased
lands are presently sub-leased by the very popular local
restaurant “Blues Bayou.” The tenant is in the second year of
a 5 year term which expires April 30, 2012, with an option to
renew for a further 5 years. The restaurant consists of a
small dining room (330sf), kitchen and washroom facilities
(510sf), and a large patio (1025sf).
Additional Land:
The Sellers own a second fee simple parcel of land (Lot 13)
located adjacent to the parking lot consisting of about 12,100
square feet. This parcel is currently vacant. Access to the
marina remains off of Bickford Lane. Zoned R-1S (Small Lot
Single Family), there are many development opportunities for
this land. It can be purchased separate from the marina and
parking lot for an additional $800,000.
Aquatic Land Lease
The current aquatic land lease commenced March 31, 1992
for a 30 year term. The Sellers have contacted the Provincial
Government requesting a premature lease replacement for
an additional 30 years and expect to achieve this extension
by the end of 2008. The 2008 annual rent of $34,069 is
calculated through a combination of moorage revenue and
appraised value of the uplands. A schedule of annual rents in
addition to a copy of the lease is available to qualified
Income generated from the marina is expected to increase
in years to come, due to the shortage of available boat slips
on southern Vancouver Island as well as more aggressive
moorage rates. Specifically, the marina can generate
additional revenue as a result of recent changes to
payment by berth size rather than boat length, increases in
moorage rates (2010), more efficient use of moorage space
(moving towards fewer but larger boats), and better control
of utilities with new electrical pedestals at each berth.
