It was a long distance deal as we live in Washington State and we had reservations on how this purchase would play out living so far away.
Todd George, our sales contact at Frankie’s made the transaction very easy, leading us through the process of buying a boat from out of state and taking care of all the additions and changes we want done to the boat. Todd and the staff at Frankie’s got the boat ready to go as we drove across country 2000 miles to pick it up. When we arrived Todd went through all the details on the boat, motors and trailer and answered every question we could come up with.
Since our purchase four months ago we did have a couple of warranty issue which were taken care of immediately by Frankie’s service department George Clopp.
We highly recommend Frankie’s if you are looking to upgrade to a new boat or need marine servus.
Thanks Todd and George for taking care of us,
Gary & Diane Millardread less

Todd and Frankies staff, help make that dream come true. They went above and beyond to make sure it was everything I ever wanted.

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

Reality nice selection of bait. I don't have any personal experience with their marine dept but I have talked to several people that have and all have the same story about great service even after the sale. Highly recommended you check this place out!read less

I just picked up my new Ranger VS1780. I couldn't be happier with Todd George, my salesman. My boat looked great!
