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

I must say I’m incredibly happy with the boat we’ve built together. I feel like I got a great deal but more importantly I’m getting exactly what I need and I feel confident about getting all the service I’ll ever need from the #1 dealer in the world. Thanks Todd/Frankies.read less

From the start the price match and value compared to other Ranger dealers in the area was second to none! I’m a stickler for detail and this boat could not have been rigged any better, there were a few small cosmetic issues while in shipment from Ranger however they were addressed immediately by Todd while going through the new boat. Not to mention this was on a Sunday afternoon when the dealership was closed Todd took time out of his day and catered to our time constraints. Todd does what he loves, he listens to the customers’ needs for absolutely everything while making a new boat selection. With (Todd’s) his watercraft experience he goes one step further to address these things in detail because he doesn’t want Frankie’s to sell you a boat you want he wants Frankie’s to sell you a boat you will love!! A new or used Ranger can almost sell it self because of the quality and unparalleled craftsmanship of these boats, Todd and the Frankie’s Team go one step further to build and create a relationship and understanding that will last a lifetime. This is the reason they are the number one Ranger dealer in the world! Lisa and the Frankie’s service team understand how limited our time can be on the water and spend countless hours making sure your boat is ready for the opener or that leisure day on the water with family. This relationship Todd and the Frankie’s team works to build had me calling on them for my used boat purchase this spring. I couldn’t be happier with my selection as I gave Todd my Tall order of wants and needs in my used boat purchase! I just wanted to share my experience with anyone else considering a new boat purchase and will not look to anyone else but Frankie’s in my future Marine needs! Thank you, J. Bloedowread less

I grew up in Chisago and had visited the bait shop many times over the years with my dad as a kid and got to know the whole family there! They took care of us as anyone would expect from a business owned and operated by 3 generations. Had a few issues upon delivery that they took care of immediately and made us feel like we were a part of the family the whole time. Great place to buy a boat and I am sure a great place to service a boat as they really know their stuff. Would definitely recommend checking them out if you are in the market for a new ride.read less
