By the way, just ask her. She might say yes to a new boat!

By far the #1 marina and launch site on the Chain of Lakes. No matter the size big or small the ramp is perfect. Not to mention the fact they have great help at the ramp to assist with launching, gas, and other needs. We have always had a great time at Ben Watts! We enjoy all the staff, who are very knowledgeable in many areas. The service department is very quick and put together, even when we have used it during the busiest times for them, they always seem to put us first. i love Ben Watts Marina, you should too!

I purchased a Ranger MPV1760 from Ben Watts Marina last year. Their customer service was excellent. They helped me launch and place the boat into my new slip. They went beyond what I expected and also set up the 4 point tie-down ropes and bumpers across the slip. This is by far the best "customer service" oriented marina I have ever experienced. A special thanks to the owners and partners Bob and the "DOC."

This was our second time launching at Ben Watts. The staff is extremely helpful. Today we had to ge towed in by a very kind slip holder after just making it past the boat slips. Everyone was so helpful and we were back on the water 20 min later! Thank you!!! Reviewed on Facebook.

2 Years Ago: Butch has been super understanding and helpful with our bass tracker boat! Goes above and beyond to listen and be helpful and make sure that our needs are met and that things are taken care of. Love them!

Also have to edit this that Butch continues to have top notch customer care. We had a very difficult situation dealing with Bass Pro shops and were very happy to see that Ben Watts eased all our worries. We will be purchasing our boats from them now on. Reviewed on Facebook.

7 Years Ago: The staff at Ben Watts are very friendly. They are reasonably priced for a pier for the season and all the amenities that come with. They offer winterizing and storage if you need and they will also summerize should you need that. Very centrally located and it's great to leave the marina and be right on the chain.

5 Years Ago: This was the first time I used Ben Watts for service. Had them winterize my boat engines and shrink wrap the boat. They found a problem and helped me schedule the warranty repairs in a timely fashion so my boat would be ready for my upcoming fishing tournaments! Thanks! Reviewed on Facebook.
