“Started taking with Carl Jr. in the winter of 2016 about a boat he had already sold on the web. After talking to him he offered to sell my 2013 Comp 165 and he did just that after the second time I asked him too! Carl Sr. met me in KY to pick my for sale boat and they sold it in 2 weeks. Ordered a new 185 Comp to take delivery in Dec while I was in Iowa for a deer hunting trip. That didn’t work out thanks to Minn Kota. Carl Jr. met me again in KY with the new boat in Jan 2017. Great two guys to work with right there!! Carl Jr. is always a text or call away even though I’m in NC!! ”

“Bought my 2011 Crownline 180 BR from Carl at the Davenport Boat show. Very courteous, no pressure experience. Service has been excellent. We were on a tight schedule to go up to Lacrosse this summer, had a minor issue pop up that would have ruined our time table of hotels and transient slips at Marinas. Carl’s staff quickly fixed the issue at no charge and saved our vacation! Truly outstanding service. We are treated like family on every visit. Looking forward to buying the next bigger and better Crownline upon retirement soon! ”

“Carl went above and beyond for us. We told him what we were looking for and he got the job done!! We love our new Crownline E2. We only wish we would have gone to Grace Marine sooner. ”

“I recently had some warranty work completed on my Alumacraft boat by Carl and his crew. I couldn’t be more happy with Grace marine for the work they did. My boat was returned as clean or cleaner than when I took it in. This is important to me, as it shows respect for others belongings. Carl and his crew were very courteous and I would highly recommend them for all of you boating needs. ”

“My wife and I purchased a new Crownline 235SS from Grace Marine. We had a great experience with Carl Jr at the shop and also Bruce in the sales department. They have been nothing but great to us throughout the whole sales process. I searched around at 3 other dealerships and found not only was Grace the cheapest, but they also offered the best service. I would have paid slightly more to do business with Grace Marine and would recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a boat or to have one worked on in there shop. I would recommend Grace Marine to anyone. Joel Johnson”

“I recently bought a used Crownline boat from Grace Marine. All of my questions/concerns were quickly answered by phone or email. Grace Marine met all of my requests to complete the sale of the boat. They were generous enough to meet me half the dstance with the boat since I am in Arkansas. I appreciate the GREAT service from Grace Marine and can’t wait to take my family out on the lake. Thanks for a great buying experience!”

“Even though I’ve never bought a boat from Grace Marine, or had any service work done there, if I lived in the area, I know where I’d go. I inquired about a potential boat (Skeeter), and Carl very kindly told to look elsewhere, or find a dealer nearer to me to find the right boat for me. He was concerned about not being able to provide me the kind of service he would expect a boat he sold to get. I was pleasantly surprised at the honesty and committment to service shown by Carl / Grace Marine. ”

“We loved our first boat and the service so much we have ordered an upgrade from Grace. The whole staff has been great to work with in all areas. ”

“Grace Marine went out of their way to make sure that I was satisfied with my purchase. Their salespeople are polite and listened to my needs before ever trying to “sell me” anything. The service department did a excellent job when I needed service and explained what they did when repairs were completed. Their shelves are stocked with the right parts to keep me on the water. I recommend Grace marine to anyone that is looking to purchase any type of boat. ”

“I bought my first boat from Grace Marine in 2008. The lake I would be keeping it on had restrictions on motor size, and Grace helped me pick out the perfect sized boat to fish it with ease. They notified me when Alumacraft received my order, when Grace received the boat, and when they were done adding the trolling motor, depth finders, and every other accessory. Although I live in Chicago, I continue to tow my boat to Grace for servicing. They are extremely cordial, do high class work, and are affordable as well. I know that I will order my next boat from Grace Marine. ”
