I selected your company to buy a Lund Boat based on your involvement with fishing on the walleye tournaments "PWT" etc. Your skill and knowledge regarding how to rig and equip a walleye boat is very important to me to select a Lund dealership.

Steve Andersen

The boat buying experience was second to none. Beginning to end. They made sure we got exactly what we wanted in the boat and equipment. Everybody from salesman to service techs took the time to show us the features of our boat. A special thanks to the whole staff at Algona Marine & Sport.

Keith & Kathleen Durschmidt

Everyone worked so hard to ensure my happiness with my boat!

Terry Feeley

The staff was friendly and very helpful. They answered all our questions and showed and explained how everything on the boat work. We were very pleased with everyone there.

Danny D Nelson

Thanks much! You made sure we had everything we needed, you were very thorough.

Byron & Anita Fehr

Chad was great to work with and made the distance from Toledo a non-issue. It will cost him a duck hunt and one fishing trip to Dakota. Thank you!

Craig Fish

I've written previously about the wonderful buying experience I had at Algona Marine when I purchased my boat in 2014. I'd now like to emphasize Algona Marine's commitment to service after the sale.

 

This past fall of 2016 I was bringing my boat to Algona for winterization. As I was traveling on the highway I was unlucky enough to have a deer decide to collide with my boat and trailer. The boat escaped most of the damage but the trailer wasn't as fortunate. Long story short, the trailer wasn't totaled but sustained tremendous damage. Right after calling the sheriff and a towing service, I called Algona Marine. Needless to say I was a bit rattled, but Chad assured me they would take care of both me and my boat. What an understatement! These guys did an amazing job communicating with my insurance company and providing the needed documentation to help the claims process move forward smoothly. They could not have been more helpful. Doug in the service department did incredible work as well and my trailer is essentially brand new.

 

To say that I am once again 100 percent satisfied with Algona Marine does not do them justice. These folks care about their customers and that has been proven to me repeatedly.

 

Best Regards

Buying a boat is a joint venture with my son Greg. Together we bought our first boat from Chad about 3 years ago. Wanting to upgrade from the Rebel line to the Impact series, We were happy to work with Chad again earlier this year. We appreciate his knowledge and his advice regarding optional equipment. For anyone in the market for a good boating experience, I recommend you check out Algona Marine & Sport Inc.

Ron Schorpp

Very professional. They take the time needed to help you become comfortable before they let you go. I know I can always count on them for my boating needs.

Jeff & Brenda Tiefenthaler

Chad, Doug, everybody else... Thank you so much for making buying a boat & rig so much fun. The price can never be beat, and all the personal attention makes me feel like part of your family. The deal is ALWAYS the deal, no surprises, straight forward. Only place I will ever buy a boat! Thanks again.

Scott Willms

Chad was great! Easy to work with and made me feel comfortable the whole time! Answered all my questions. The whole process was smooth and easy!

Patrick McCartney

I checked around for fishing boats and decided to go with a Lund 1875 from Algona Marine & Sport because the Hall Family does not just sell boats, they are outdoorsmen who use the equipment they sell. Both Lance and Chad are good to work with.  They found all available manufactures rebates to help save me money.  The guys in the shop go the extra distance to help you rig your equipment the way you want it done

Dan Williams

Chad, Bill, and Amy were very helpful and welcoming when I came to pick up the boat. Bill did a great job orienting me to the boat and Amy was very organized with the paperwork. I appreciated Chad's help when I initially inquired about the boat and his follow up afterward. Very enjoyable experience.

Marv Nysetvold

After experiencing unprofessional treatment & service at another 2 boat repair shops, a friend told me to go to Algona Marine after rudely being told my motor was worn out. I was treated professionally, and Doug the mechanic repaired the engine, which runs better then ever! Thank you Algona Marine.

 

Verne Prohaska

We couldn't thank you all enough especially Lance for your great service. We are very happy with our boat. All of your staff has been very helpful!

Dave & LeAnn Bauer

Thanks to the whole team during the purchase of our latest boat in the spring of 2016. You can buy a boat anywhere, but how they treat you and their service is top notch. This is the reason my son and I travel 2 hours to Algona to buy our 2nd boat from them. We can't say enough good about them. You are more than just a customer.

 

Thank you again to Lance, Chad, Bill, Doug, Mark, and Mary.

Rick & Joe Kellar

I am happy with the deal I got from Chad, he knew what I needed to give me the best bang for my bucks, and I didnt buy anything that I didn't need to give me a pleasurable fishing boat. Lance was very informative on the walk around and I appreciate all the helpful tips.

Robert Biersner

Great family owned business, very accomadating. Easy to deal with and very knowledeable on their product. Thanks guys. Great job.

Gerald Studer

Thank you all for a very low pressure boat deal. The time spent with us on our decision making was very much appreciated. Everyone on staff was very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions about boats or fishing. Again thank you for a very enjoyable experience!

Pete & Michelle Nettleton

This is my 6th new boat and this is the best dealings of all. Hats off to a great team. The boat looks great and I will train it to fish.

James Durfee

The entire staff was friendly, fair, and helpful. I can't wait to see if it (the boat) helps me catch more and bigger fish like they promised! 

Bob & Jane Lee

In an age where customer service and satisfaction seem to be lost, I'm glad I made the drive from Nebraska to Algona Marine & Sport. Chad and his staff took the time to listen to our needs and help us select the boat that was perfect for us. When we picked up the boat Chad took the time to go over our boat from bow to stern and made sure everything worked just right. Thanks for everything! See you on the water.

Al Lonzman

We bought our first boat from Algona Marine 20 years ago. We were very pleased with the service, so that brought us back to purchase our new Lund from them. Nice people to deal with. Lance treated us very fair and felt we got a good deal. Highly reccomend them!

Craig & Carol Mennenga

We wife found the boat we purchased online. Made appointment to look at said boat and everbody was accomodationg. Very pleasant experience.

Bret & Joni Throlson

Recently my wife and I were shopping for a new Lund boat.  We had visited

dealers here in Iowa and one in Minnesota.  We had not experienced what I

would call good customer service.  Sales people were not overly enthusiastic

in trying to help us,  and when we called the dealerships back with

questions our calls were not returned. A friend of my wife suggested we

contact Algona Marine as they had experienced great customer service in

their recent boat purchase.  We did just that and I am happy to say that

what we experienced was one of the most pleasant experiences we have ever

had in shopping for and purchasing a major recreational item.  We were

introduced to the entire staff and constantly felt like we were appreciated.

All staff members were able to answer all questions with expertise. It

wasn't hard to make the decision to purchase our new Lund boat from Algona

Marine. We have also noticed that the customer service continues after the

sale. A rarity in today's sales experience.  We are able to recommend Algona

marine to all interested in a relaxed, informed boat shopping experience.

 

 

Thomas & Mary Nancarrow

I found the Algona Marine crew to be very friendly and helpful from sales to the shop. I'm sure that customer service will be there if i need it. A big thanks for getting my Lund delivered in time for my vacation.

Darrell Fowles

 

Just a note of thanks to Bill and the entire team at Algona Marine & Sport, Inc.!  We purchased a new Lund Boat and the staff was so helpful and supportive throughout the process!  Thanks Again.

 

Kevin Hatfield

We would like to thank the Algona Marine Family for doing a great job in setting us up with our New Boat 1650 Lund Rebel.  The experience they showed, very courteous.  We will recommend Family & Friends to buy from you.

Richard and Nancy Kottke

We are second-time boat purchasers at Algona Marine. We very much like our new Lund 1650 Rebel XL boat, motor, and trailer. After shopping around we came back here finding everything we needed in our purchase and quality of service in future years.

Lynn & Betty Chapin

Very nice people. When I am ready for my next Lund, Algona Marine & Sport will be my first choice. Thanks Lance.

Pat Jensen

I had been thinking about buying a nice fishing boat for quite some time and im not getting any younger. My son Greg took me to your dealership and i kind of "fell in love" with the 1650 Rebel XL SS sitting in the showroom. Chad was easy to talk to and answered all our questions and closed the deal. I couldnt be happier with the boat.

 

Thanks!

Ron Schorpp

The entire staff at Algona Marine is very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. They made the purchase of our boat easy and it is a high quality product. I would recommend Algona Marine to anyone. Thank you Bill, Chad, and Lance!

JAMIE MERTZ

Everyone at Algona Marine, Bill, Chad, and Lance, plus Dawn and office staff, plus Doug and Mark in service all worked together to make the purchase of my new Lund Pro-V a very positive experience. Thanks to all!

GARY WOLLSCHLAGER

After purchasing 2 used boats from Algona Marine it is a great experience purchasing a new one from Chad Hall. Chad and Bill are both real pros at not only fishing, but selling, rigging, and filling a customers needs!

Alan Clausman

Very helpful, fair, and courteous. Nice doing buisness with a family run operation. The service exceeded our expectation.

Allen & Jeanette Upmeyer

Many thanks go to Algona Marine and Sport for what was one of the most pleasurable buying experiences I've had.

 

My purchase of a 2014 Lund Impact could not have gone better. I was treated with the utmost respect, kindness, and patience by the entire staff at Algona Marine. From Chad, to the office staff, to the techs in the shop, they all took the time to answer my many questions and never stopped being helpful. The guys in the shop did a great job of rigging my boat and accommodated many last minute requests. I can't imagine a more professional installation than the one i have on my boat. Service after the sale has been equally excellent and my questions are always answered quickly and completely. Chad even makes the time to offer fishing advice!

 

Algona Marine and Sport has earned my continuous buisness and support. Even though they are quite a distance from me, it is absolutely worth the effort to have them as my dealer.

 

Thanks again to the fine folks at Algona Marine!

Steve Mark

This is our second boat, we are from Des Moines and it was worth the drive. Bill made transaction/purchase short & sweet. Very pleasant and knowledgeable family when it comes to Lund boats.

Nick Chia

I bought a used boat at Algona Marine several years ago and immediately recognized they were one of the best. After deciding i wanted a new Lund boat it was a no-brainer where i would turn to order it. Chad was really alot of help in choosing between options and specifying the boat the way I wanted it. Delivery was great and I know I can always conact Algona Marine if I need something.

 

P.S. Even after no contact for several years, Chad would always know my name when I would see him at Sports Shows. Impressive!

Mike Youngblood

Nobody does boats better than the staff at Algona Marine & Sport. From our initial discussions about a new boat, to putting it all together, and the work done by the crew in the shop. I Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Best of all, Chad, Lance, and the rest of the staff made me feel like we were all in it together.

 

Thanks Algona Marine & Sport

Doug Newhoff

Chad, you were awesome, thanks for the good customer service!

Jason Lee

You guys are great to work with. i haven't had my boat long but the service is great. Very friendly makes us feel like family. Thanks guys.

Dean Zuetlau

I slelected Algona Marine & Sport, Inc. because of their walleye fishing experience.  I was looking for a Lund Pro Guide and they had what I was looking for.  It was soon clear thet they were "good folks", they know boats and they sure know fishing.   I left with a boat that was properly outfitted and I am very convinced of both their integrity and boat knowledge.

Glenn DeStigter

We have had our new Lund Rebel for three months and we love it.  And we love the service and people at Algona Marine.  Wh have never had such a positive experience with retail as we have had at AMS.  Lance Hall was very patient, knowledgeable, personable, and attentive and a great sales person.  The people in the garage were very nice and skilled, too.  We highly recommend Algona Marine & Sport!

Terri & Bob Weselmann

Very good experience working with Bill & Chad in choosing the Lund 1775 Impact, thanks to Chad for his hard work in getting the boat out of the factory in time for our fishing trip, & the shop for thier quick and good work in getting it ready.  The boat performed better than expected on the water.  You are a great bunck of people to work with, Thank You.

Dennis & Pam Trausch

Good Job

James O. Trost

You were great to work with.  When I had questions about the livewell, Doug answered all of my questions.  You all did an excellent job.

Steve Loers

Thank you so much for helping us pick out the perfect boat for us!  The Lund Crossover XS is a superb boat and we couldn’t be happier!  Your professional job of rigging it put our satisfaction “over the top”!  It has been a pleasure dealing with all of the staff at Algona Marine.

Melinda and Don Zeimet

Delivered as promised. Very personable and appreciated our buisness!

Jerald Clark

I had a wonderful experience working with Chad on the purchase of a Lund fishing boat.  He was very patient, friendly and helpful.  He took many phone calls, connected me with a previous owner, sent additional photos, and did an overall superb job.  This is one of many purchases on boats, but it was the best!  Superb!!

James Colasacco

What a great group of people to work with.  They are very friendly and know their boats.  I bought my first boat from them this year and I don't think I would consider going anywhere else!  Know, I need to get all their tricks to catch the big walleyes.

Troy Matheason

I was very pleased with everything.

Erby Shipler

I had a great time looking at boats and asking questions.  Everyone went out of their way to answer any questions I came up with.  Special thanks to Bill for offering an honest deal right from the start.  Looking forward to future business with everyone.

Todd Pityer

Called Bill up and told him what kind of Boat I was looking for, within a mater of minutes he had called me with a quote, that had blown away his competitors! The most informative and knowledgable staff I've ever delt with!  Prices on electronics and accessories that can't be beat.  Customers for life and would highly recommend them to anyone!  Thanks Algona Marine Staff!!  Looking forward to the fall trip to Lake of the woods. 

Matthew & Amanda Bell

Thank you Chad & Bill for helping us choose the right boat for us, which was the 1775 Impact.  Comparison shopping for awhile, we are sure this is the best boat package and we were glad because this is the one we wanted!  We are also sure that "customer care" will be there if we need it.  Thanks again for the friendly help & advice.

Bob & Rita Barth

This is the second boat I have bought from Algona Marine & Sport.  The sales staff was very pleasant to work with and worked hard to make the sale happen.  When I  picked up my new boat they were very informative on operation warranty and the break in.  They said if I have any trouble at all to call.  I am very pleased with everything they did.

Mike Holst

I was a new customer and I was greeted with courtesy and felt very welcome.  They answered all my questions.  I bought a used boat and they went through it to make sure everythings was working properly.  I was very satisfied doing business with them. 

Ron Girres

I have found Algona Marine very friendly and helpful, from the front desk to the shop.  I would recommend them to my friends and neighbors.

Larry King

For me it usually starts with a fishing magazine.  You know the shot.  Boat on plane-sun bleached background-a dash to the fishing hole.  Next thing you know the rod tip buckles and you and your partner are netting a monster at the side of the new boat!  From there you cut the ad out and place it on the fridge.  Purchasing a boat is a BIG decision; size, hp, rigging, accessories, and trailer.  And most importantly?  DEALER!

Allow me to introduce Chad Hall and the gang at Algona Marine.  These are people just like you and I.  Hard working, dependable, enthusiastic and fanatical about their fishing!  These guys have chased everything from walleye to bluefin.  Take their advice when it comes to boats.  They'll put you in a rig where you can take your own picture landing a trophy at the side of your new boat!  I'll fish a hundred days this year.  And I'll do it in a boat purchased through Algona Marine.  Set the hook!

Gary Moeller

Chad and the team at Algona Marine were great in helping me get the boat of my Dreams!  He was quick to respond to all of my questions.  My dad bought his first boat 30 years ago from Chad's Dad and that is why I went to them.  I plan to teach my kids the value of execellent service that passes down generations of lifelong customers.  Thank you!

Ben Buckley

We took our new boat to Lake Rathbun to break in the motor. It performed outstanding. The service and extreme helpfulness was great as we were looking for our new unit. We would recommend the Halls to anyone who is in the market for a new boat.

Lynn & Diane Holland

I bought a 1625 Rebel XL from Lance. I had looked a long time to find what I wanted. Algona Marine had what I wanted, so I took the 1.5 hour drive to take a look. Lance was working that Saturday and we came to a price. I told him I would let him know Monday. He wouldn't tell me till after I took the boat that someone else was also looking at it. The whole staff at Algona Marine made me feel at home. We came to a good price. Just waiting on the snap on cover was worth the trip.

Glenn Kubly

It was a pleasure to purchase my "new to me" boat from Algona Marine. The salestaff was eager to work with me & provided a fair trade value for my previouse boat. The additional itms that I also purchased....boat cover, spare rim, and wheel were ready when I came to pick up my new boat.

I appreciated a walk through orientation to the use of my boat before leaving the lot. Buying a boat through Algona Marine was a positive experience!

Michael Last

First think I want to say is WOW what a bunch of friendly, polite, and professional people at Algona Marine & Sport. It was a pleasure doing business with them. I've bought new boats in the past from other dealers but have never had an enjoyable experience like the one I received from these people. The new Lund 2075 Pro V IFS is beautiful and a thrill to fish out of. It's everything Chad and Bill said it would be and much more. A lot of people have asked me why I would drive 2 hours from my home to purchase a new boat or have work done on my boat. I tell them that if they want someone that really knows how to work on boats or motors and can give you an honest deal on a boat and that you can trust, they would drive that far too.

To be real honest, I can't see myself ever buying a boat from anyone else in the future!

Thanks everyone at Algona Marine for making my dream come true and putting me in that new 2012 Lund 2075 ProV. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!

Doug Schleis

Chad & staff-

Thank you for the help and suggestions while purchasing my boat. You made our experience feel like we have known you all for a long time. Thanks again!

Louie Covillo

Very nice people, easy to work with!

Joseph Dale Greiner

Everyone was so nice & so helpful. We loved our experience at Algona Marine!

Cory & Brandi Nelson

I was very happy with the whole staff that I dealt with at Algona Marine & Sport when I purchased my boat. The sales people, service people, & front desk people were all very friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable in their respective areas. Algona Marine is certainly a very well ran operation!

Bob Broghammer

I was really treated great at this dealership. It was a pleasure doing business here.

Jerry Thielen

I recently purchased a very clean Lund 1675 Explorer. The technicians did a great job mounting several add-ons. I couldn't be happier with the friendly knowledgeable staff. I would highly recommend Algona Marine & Sport to anyone looking for a quality Lund boat.

Dan Menke

Very pleased with my Lund Pro Guide 1825 purchase experience. Chad's fishing experience made it easy for him to relate to what I was looking for & how I planned on using it. Chad's staff was very knowledgeable & professional, from Billy in the shop to the personnel up front that completed the paperwork.

Rick Holman

The sales staff at Algona Marine & Sport was extremely helpful. They asked what I was looking for in a boat then showed me what they had to offer. There was no up selling or high pressure sales. When I picked up the boat both the sales and service staff explained all the functions of the boat and were able to answer my questions in a manner a novice boater could understand. On my first trip to the lake the boat performed flawlessly. We had a great time and even caught some fish. I couldn't be happier!

Tom Herrod

We first saw our at a Sports show at the UNI Dome. We talked to Lance, who was very helpful in explaining to us all the details of our 18 ft Lund Tyee, 175 HP Verado Engine and trailer. We are very happy with our purchase and will have this boat for many years to come. It does everything we want it to. Now we will see how many fish it will catch and how big!! Thanks to all the caring staff at Algona Marine.

Everett & Krista Krug

April 1, 2012- have gotten to use our boat twice & just love it! Dennis thought everyone @ the dealership were super people. So far the boat has been all we expected.

Dennis & Ricki Tuttle

I couldn't ask for better service! Chad worked very hard to satisfy both parties involved.

Daryl Schepers

The staff was very accommodating. I feel I got a good boat at a good price from good people. Thanks again!

Danny Shreve

The boat trailer I bought was serviced properly and the service people were real helpful. Thank you!

Calvin Bruggeman

Very helpful and friendly!

Kyle Peterson

Billy and staff at algona marine exceeded my expectations helping me with my recent g3 boat warranty replacement. Thanks for all your help and great service. 

Denny Farrell

Doing business with Algona Marine is a smart choice for us, and well worth the travel. They always listen and understand our boating needs. Its a family run, dependable and fair and most of all your treated like "family." They don't just sell you a boat, they promote a life style with smart choices!

Donald & Dianna Roetman

Chad & Bill always take good care of me when I've dealt with them. They do an AWESOME JOB!

Len Reyer

The Activities Director took our client on a dinner cruise three months ago. The resident really enjoyed the experience. Unfortunately, the boat did not allow everyone to participate. We looked for three months for a boat and dealer who could meet our needs for a quality product and outstanding service.

Algona Marine exceeded our requirements. The staff is competent, experienced, and courteous. Although we traveled to Algona, IA to purchase our new Bentley 220 Encore Cruise pontoon boat, the trip was definitely worth the drive.

We were concerned that distance would prevent us from receiving the service required of a new boat owner. However, we are totally satisfied with the efficiency, speed, and dedication of Algona staff to provide necessary service.

On behalf of the residents of Comfort Home of Delta, we want to express our appreciation for a wonderful addition to our activity program.

Lyndsane Corp D/B/A Comfort Home of Delta

They were good people to deal with and didn't pressure you into buying a boat. When I picked the new boat up they got my boat in right away and started taking things off that I wanted off my boat & installed on the new boat. They took the time to explain things on the motor and how to service it.

Wayne Hemry

I purchased a Yacht Club trailer for my Pontoon. On a very short notice before the 4th of July weekend. Lance did everything possible to get me that trailer and my pontoon (motor tuned-up) before the end of June. He did this all within 7 days! I am so thankful for all you did, Lance and Billy to get this all ready to go! I love my new trailer, pulled it 12 hrs down to Table Rock Lake, MO and back & that trailer was so easy to pull! And so easy to load my pontoon on! The boat ran so nice! Had a great vacation because your team of expertise got me down there & back running smoothly! Thank you so much I will continue to do business with you & send any your way that I run in to!

Duke & Debbie Larson

I was absolutely amazed at how honest and nice all of their staff were. I would definitely tell anyone who needed a boat, to go to Algona Marine & Sport. I will never forget my experience and we absolutley love our boat!

Rich & Tory Miers

It was an enjoyable experience. Lance and Chad were very helpful in picking out & setting up the boat. Their service department were very helpful in going over everything with me.

Rick Kellar

Thank you so much for your helpfullness in our aquiring another pontoon. Also thank you for keeping it for us till we could get it picked up this Spring. All of you we have talked to & worked with have been very professional & patient.

Herman & Candy Kamaradt

– The sales process with Bill and Chad was very smooth.  The guys made sure that the price was fair and that I had the options that I needed on my Lund.  I traveled to Algona from Des Moines relying only on pictures and the phone assistance from Bill – the boat was exactly as they had represented.  Bill took time to do a thorough walk-through on the boat explaining the various functions and maintenance points.  This was only the start with Algona Marine.  I had a big fishing trip planned one week later and upon my trial run of all of the equipment and boat in Des Moines, I ran into an unforeseen mechanical issue.  I called Bill and Chad – within 15 minutes Billy hit the road from Algona to repair my boat (in Des Moines!).  Billy left Des Moines to return home at 9:00 at night after we had put it back on the water to make sure everything was up and running!  He said he wouldn’t feel right leaving if we did not test it!  Needless to say – it is not often you find a business that holds up to its promise to stand behind their product.  Algona Marine lived its promise.  Thanks for an excellent buying experience!

Dustin Petersen

Everyone was really helpful, and made you feel at home, and not uncomfortable. Thanks!

Terry P Feeley

Bill was very helpful on the phone and his used trailers were represented to what was described on the phone and internet. Drove from Souix Falls and was very happy with service. Would come back again. Thanks Bill!

Chris Jewell

Thank you Bill & Chad for your services and help getting on the water fast!

Robert Heaford

Really cooperative, good to work with, fair & trustworthy.

Stuart Stringham

THE FOLKS AT ALGONA MARINE & SPORT ARE ALWAYS SO CHEERFUL. THEY WALKED US THROUGH EVERYTHING ABOUT OUR NEW PONTOON. REBECCA & JILL WERE VERY HELPFUL AT DOING THE PAPERWORK. JILL HELPED US FIND A BANK TO FINANCE IT. I WOULD RECOMMEND ANYONE THAT WANTS A BOAT, NEW OR USED, TO GO TO ALGONA MARINE & SPORT! CAN'T WAIT TO GET OUT ON THE WATER!! THANKS GUYS!!

Jerome & Tina Zeimet

Drove by Algona Marine one day and saw the boat with the motor of our dreams! Settled on a price, and asked for a few tweaks-which Chad did without batting an eye. What a boat!! And what a deal!!

Roger & Judy Lentz

We appreciate the good service. Everyone that works there is friendly and we enjoyed doing buisness with you.

Robert Hark

We were so pleased with the people at Algona Marine. We priced the same boat, motor and trailer in our area and Chad Hall gave us the best deal. This is our 2nd Lund we purchased from Chad and would never go any place else. Keep up the good work all of you. We appreciate it very much!

Lynn Holland

I was very plessed with the representation of the G3 Pontoon we purchaed from Algona Marine. They discussed all the options available and the quality of the product very well. I have known them to stand behind their products. We look forward to years of boating.

Donna Kitzinger

Very helpful; answered all my questions. Had boat ready when I showed up to pick it up. Very easy to talk to in person and over the phone.

Patrick S. McColloch

Friendly and knowlegeable salesmen and staff with fast delivery.

Jim Anderson

We've used the boat a lot in July. Our older kids come back to see us (actually to use the boat) and bring their friends. And our younger kids invite friends. Great tool to bribe our kids to hang out with us.

David & Portlind Bjustrom

I looked at three different dealers before coming to Algona. All three were very pushy and were unfriendly. Bill & Chad were very nice people to talk to and deal with. Also, Bily in the back was very helpful on my prop problem. Even though I could have bought the Alumacraft cheaper, I am very glad I went with a Lund and with Algona Marine. It was well worth the 3½ hour drive and the extra 2 thousand dollars. I would recommend Algona Marine to anyone. You guys, and office gals, are A++.

Chris Meyer

Several years ago my son and I started talking about getting a new boat. I was already the owner of a 16 ft. Lund w/tiller but decided I wanted to upsize. Being new to the area we set out to a local dealer. When considering making a purchase that large and getting what I wanted and needed was a major factor in my mind. Well, apparently the dealership we went to did not. Not only did they apparently not care they wouldn't even talk to us. So my son said, "To heck with them if they don't care about us then we will take our business and money to someone who does. That in itself presented a problem because as I said I was new to the area. But I did know someone I could ask; he owned a boat. So I did just that and he recommended ALGONA MARINE. So that is where I went and would become the proud owner of a 19 ft. Lund, that met my specifications. I was treated like they cared about my satisfaction. So with many good times to remember with that 19 ft. Lund, yes, that upsizing feeling came upon me again. The buddy who first recommended ALGONA MARINE was also thinking of upsizing. So with no hesitation we set out for ALGONA MARINE. And yes, once again became owners of, this time 21 ft. Lund that met our specifications. I don't know that I will be doing anymore upsizing but if I ever decide to, there is no doubt that I know exactly who I will go to and that is ALGONA MARINE.

Douglas Witzenburg

Just a small token of our appreciation for all the work you did. Take the wife or family out to eat or whatever. See ya on the water sometime. Thank you very much.

First of all I would like to say "2 oz. come on, you should of won!" Just kidding! The fun and enjoyment is the most important thing, speaking of ! My boat! WOW!!! I love it, even if it does not help me catch more fish, I look good!

I just wanted to Thank You and your staff on the wonderful first class treatment I have received. (even though you lacked 2 oz.) The service team you have down there is second to none. I would recommend Algona Marine to anyone who ask, the sense of humor, the warm friendly reception I have always gotten when I walk in the door is just hard to find anymore.

Please pass this along to all who work down there, "Don't ever Change" you have a very special group that serves its customers well. Thank You!

P.S. Thanks again for the autographed hat! My son has claimed it as his prize possession .

Thank you for you for your professionalism and courteous attitude in the purchase of my boat on Saturday.

Everyone handled themselves in a manner that made me feel very good about purchasing my boat.

You have a great staff and I want to especially thank Billy for telling me everything there is to know about my boat.

You have built a very good business and I appreciate how I was handled when I walked in your door!

Thank you!

Now that the 2008 fishing season has drawn to a close and I was making plans for 2009, my wife asked me a question. "How did your boat work," thinking back for a moment I said "Just like the previous one." Her next question was "Haven't you purchased all of them from Algona Marine? Aren't there other dealers around?" Which got me to thinking why have I purchased 4 boats from a dealership that is 140 miles from my home in Altoona, IA?

I began explaining why and the number one reason is I AM A FISHERMAN, a boat is just one part of the equation. Recalling the details of my purchases leads me to answer the what, where, when and why questions asked by you. This process insured that my boat would make me a happy owner and future customer of your dealership.

I know change is always in the wind, but never forget what makes you what you are. Happy customers return and do more business. Unhappy customers don't.

Just a note of appreciation for the work Billy did on my boats this spring.

After putting both boats in the water, they did not run smooth and Billy went to the lake and tuned them both up. My powerboat is working now better than it has the entire fifteen years I have owned it.

In my experience this the kind of customer service that I have hoped for and seldom found in any business let alone boating. Billy offered no excuses for the problems I was having but simply fixed them. I hope you can pass on to him my satisfaction and praise him for jobs well done.

I have used three different shops in the Okoboji area over a seventeen-year period and I have not been satified with any of them. I am now very satisfied client of your business and share my expereince with my boating friends and family.

THANKS for your excellent work and for Billy's skill and willingness to see a job through!

Everyone that I talked to at Marine and Sport was very courteous and informative. Boat and trailer and motor was all prepped and ready to go; they showed me about depth finder shift and controls and how to break motor in.  If I ever get another boat, it will be from Algona Marine and Sports.

Tim and I liked working with the staff - very helpfull and pleasant. We really like the boat. We tell others where we got the boat and recommened they visit your place of business.

Dennis Schoenwetter and Tim Maas

They made you feel welcome. They were kind, courteous, and very helpful. The job was done right the first time. I will get my next boat at Algona Marine.

I finally got the boat in the water. Runs great and did I get a lot of good comments on it. My friends think that Black Rebel looks great. My brother has an Alumacraft and he said he wants a new Lund. His wife tells him to just go fishing with me.

First fishing trip, I caught a nice walleye on Storm Lake. Glad I caught the first one. Many more to come. Thanks again.

Staff is friendly and helpful.

Tim Funk

A big Thank You to the whole staff at Algona Marine and Sport for your help in choosing my new Explorer Sport 17'. During the whole process, they were very helpful to make sure I got the boat I wanted plus all the electronics to make it very useful. After the sale, their explanation of all aspects of operations was great. Thank you again for all of your time to make sure my boat buying experience was enjoyable. Thank you!

Keith & Kathy Durschmidt

We purchased a boat from Chad. We appreciated his knowledge about all the products they sell. Chad, Lance & Connie were all very friendly and helpful. The service was excellent and Billy Bradford knew his job well. We highly recommend your place of business.

Robert & Bonita Harle

Just wanted to say "Thanks!" for your excellent customer service! Our boat is running great, and we've really been enjoying it this summer! Thanks for standing behind it after the sale! We'll definitely be in when we're ready to upgrade! We appreciated all your help!

Craig & Sheri Marihart

Just a thank you to "all of you at Algona for your extra effort". We got the boat home safe, put it in Lake Minnetonka and even caught a few bass. It was a pleasure working with you and will recommend Algona Marine to anyone.

Mike & Sue Morgan

Just wanted you to know that we really are enjoying our new Lund. I also wanted you to know that because of the way you handled us on our first meeting, you sold the boat. You gave us time and listened to us even though you all were very busy. Shamrock Boat Sales quoted us a price less than you, but we wanted to deal with you, and are happy we did!

Dave and Cork Tracey

Thanks for everything you did for me. The boat and all the equipment made this vacation one of the best ever. The boat worked like a charm, handled well in rough water and idled right down for back trolling. I have never been as impressed as I was with you and all your people at Algona Marine. From the first time I walked in the door, to when I pulled away with my new boat, I was treated with respect and attention. Thank you. If I run into anybody considering buying a boat or motor, there's only one place I'll tell them to buy--Algona Marine. Again, thanks for everything.

My wife and I were at Algona Marine this past Saturday (3/11), and completed a deal to purchase the red Explorer 1700 sitting on your showroom floor. (We're excited, to say the least.) As we completed the agreement, we purchased a Lowrance depth finder/GPS to be installed on the dash. It's the 334 iGPS. In the excitement of the moment, I failed to ask if the temperature and speed sensors would be installed, as well. I'd like to make sure those two items are included at installation. We're scheduled to pick up the boat on April 1.

When you speak to him, I'd like to thank Bill again for the respectful way in which he dealt with us, and we're looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial association with Algona Marine & Sport. Thanks in advance for your help with the Sonar/GPS.

I spent three days in Bill Hall's 2025 Lund last week. Every day the wind was from 25-45 mph, so you know how rough that was. I couldn't believe how smoothly his boat handled those big waves. The nose cut through with very little pounding. I run a 2050 Skeeter, just like the Dutchman's, and thought our boats were superior in big waves. I give the edge to Bill's boat.
