Toronto Yacht Sales, part of the United City Yachts network of full-service certified yacht brokerages in Canada, has installed the first Jr. Life Jacket Loaner Station at the Trent Port Marina as part of the brokerage network's Jr. DockWise Program, an exciting new safety initiative to give back to the community and save young lives on the water

TORONTO, ON --(Marketwired - July 24, 2017) - Toronto Yacht Sales ( is pleased to announce that they have installed a Jr. Life Jacket Loaner Station at the Trent Port Marina in Trenton Ontario to provide loaner life jackets for children free of charge. Toronto Yacht Sales is part of United City Yachts Inc. (, a network of full-service Canadian yacht brokerages that also includes Kingston Yacht Sales, Georgian Bay Yacht Sales, Montreal Yacht Sales, and Vancouver Yacht Sales. The Trent Port Marina life jacket station will be the first of many such stations as part of United City Yacht's Jr. DockWise Program, an exciting new safety initiative to save young lives on the water. Each life jacket station holds ten life jackets of various children's sizes and has instructions posted on how to correctly size and secure the jacket. Attractive and functional, the stations are constructed from long-lasting, low maintenance materials and are freestanding, measuring approximately five feet wide by six feet high. The next two Jr. Life Jacket Loaner Stations are scheduled to be installed at the Port Credit Yacht Club in the coming weeks through the Toronto Yacht Sales office (

"We at United City Yachts have sold a lot of boats across Canada through our locations in Toronto, Kingston, Georgian Bay, Montreal and Vancouver and the Jr. DockWise program is our chance to give back to all of our boating customers," says Andre Ganton, co-owner of United City Yachts Inc. "We are excited about being the first full-service yacht brokerage to really put a focus on marina safety by education for the kids around the docks. We are happy to have created and fully funded the Jr. DockWise program entirely through our company. We would love to see this unfold across Canada."

"The DockWise concept is pretty simple; do not let the kids walk the docks or head out onto the water without a life jacket on," explains Ganton's business partner Adrian Philpot. "With our loaner station, there will always be life jackets available. Just grab a jacket and return it when your boating for the day is done. No charge! We supply, install and maintain each station, including restocking life jackets should the originals be lost or damaged. Although our goal is to give back to the community, this initiative is not entirely selfless of course. We are keeping our 'future customers' afloat so we can sell them a boat! After all, we are in yacht brokerage business for the long haul," remarks Philpot.

"We would like to give a big thank you for those yacht clubs and marinas that have signed on to be part of the program. It is great to see them recognize how beneficial the Jr. DockWise program can be. If you think your yacht club or marina would be interested in becoming a partner with our Jr. DockWise program, please reach out to us. We'd love to hear from you," adds Ganton.
