I love to fish and I wanted to fish bigger water in the years ahead so I figured I would start the search for the newest member of our fishing family. I went to the Minneapolis Boat Show to compare boats and boat dealers and because of the reputation of Ranger Boats and because Todd from Frankie's Marine was so friendly and excited to talk about fishing and share various innovations on the product, I decided that Ranger was the boat for us! Frankie's Marine in Chisago Lakes has been a family owned entity as long as I can remember. I grew up in the area and figured if I was going to be buying a Ranger, that I would definitely be buying from them. We ordered our Ranger 621FS and proceeded to visit the showroom once or twice a week to size up all the accessories we anticipated putting on after delivery. When the boat arrived we had an issue with the wrong fabric on our seats... Todd jumped in and got it taken care of for us, and in less than 10 days Ranger had delivered us brand new seats and they were installed at the shop. We had a few other minor tweaks needed and the service center got us in and out in less than 48 hours. It's strange for me to think that the largest Ranger Boat dealer in the country is the one in the little town I grew up in, but after being an actual customer, I can see why they sell as many boats as they do. A big thanks to the whole team that helped us get into our new dream boat... now I just have to figure out how to actually catch as many fish as this boat makes me "look" like I can! :D.read less

Customized service, a patient sales team (Todd George), and an overall friendly and helpful team. These people are true experts on the Ranger boat line and on everything else you need to be on the water in the Midwest. They provided me with accurate and important information, exactly what we needed to make this big decision. I'm sure the entire sales team is the same but our guy Todd took the needed time to help make sure our family was making the right decision. He did this without ever showing a moment of pressure. Todd's patience with us and his knowledge of the products we were considering made this a great experience. You cannot buy a boat in MN without stopping in to Frankie's Marine. This place makes you feel like family!read less

Todd has a thorough knowledge of the Ranger product line and all the accessories. He can help figure out which motor is right for you and make sure you get the electronics network rigged the way you want it. If you want to demo a Ranger boat, he will line that up. Todd will tell it like it is and make sure you get accurate information. He picks up the phone when you call and gets right back to you with answers. When it involves a new Ranger boat, it has to be right, and Todd will make sure that happens. It has been my pleasure to get to know Todd in my many contacts with him, and I trust he will offer the same attention to detail and great service to everyone who comes to Frankie’s.read less

They are always friendly, pleasant, and treat their clients like family. My salesman Todd George was awesome to work with-from start to finish. He was so helpful and responsive to my questions and really guided me through the whole process of custom building my boat. I'm in sales too, and Todd is a real professional and a great advocate for his clients. Todd told me he likes to treat his clients like he would like to be treated and he lives up to those words. I will always refer friends looking to purchase a boat to Frankie's and Todd George. jimmy pesisread less
