Core Values


Experience the joy of boating and the healthy, relaxing lifestyle here at Lake Carroll. We’ve been helping families have fun on the water since 1971.

Whether you’re searching for a dealer in new boats or top quality used watercraft, our experienced staff will walk you through all the choices you have available such as Godfrey Sweetwater, Hurricane, Voyager Docks and Max Docks & Lifts.


You want your boat to be given the same careful maintenance and service that we give one of our own.

A recommended option to make sure your boat is professionally cleaned before storage. More complex boating repairs on many brands may require our certified technicians and state of the art Service Center. You want quality, carefree boating at Lake Carroll. It’s our job to make that happen and keep you as a customer for life.


Your boating investment needs indoor protection against our harsh upper Midwest winter conditions.

Rest assured that your boat, pontoon or personal watercraft will be placed in one of our four storage buildings with spacious capacity. Security for your investment is important. Our 9-acre Lake Carroll complex is fenced and lighted. In & out summer storage is available whenever needed with just a call.

  • Winterizing

    Fun on the water for your next boating season begins with protection in the late fall. Perdue Marine certified technicians will clean and winterize your boat and engine according to manufacturer’s brand specifications, saving you time and effort come spring.

  • Spring Start-Up

    When the time comes in the spring to take your boat out of winter storage, Perdue Marine makes it easy with a checklist that includes inspection and replacement, when needed on fuel system, belts, cables and hoses, electrical system, fluid levels, and propellers.
