Joe's Marine is a full service marine maintenance and repair facility.
We are located in beautiful downtown Ely, Minnesota at 25 West Chapman Street.
Joe's Marine & Repair has been family operated since 1974.
Joe Gilbert had a vision for the need of a repair shop in the Ely area. He purchased Nordstrom's Blacksmith Shop on the west end of town and transformed it into a repair shop.
In the beginning the shop was run by Joe, his daughters Sherry and Cathy and his son Kevin.
Soon after the business grew Cathy's husband Rico joined the business.
In the early 80's Kevin came back full time and his wife Paulette came on board.
In the mid 80's Joe's wife Nancy became the bookkeeper. When Nancy retired Cathy took over the bookkeeping duties.
Joe even had his grandchildren Jason, Tony and Jenni working in the shop.
Over the years we have had many wonderful employees helping make Joe's Marine what it is today.
