Ben Watts Marina was opened in 1954 by our name sake and founder by renting small fishing boats. Today, the marina is still owned and operated by his 3rd and 4th generations and has grown into a full service marina.

During the summer season, we have over 300 slips as well as dry storage and in & out service.  Inside and outside storage are available during the winter months in addition to shrink wrap, winterizing and bottom washing.

Our new boat showroom houses the latest models of Ranger Fishing Boats and Silver Wave Pontoons. We are also dealers for Evinrude and Mercury motors and Power Pole shallow water anchor systems. Pre-owned boats can be found for sale as well.

Ben Watts Marina's service department employs master certified technicians and the parts department has an extensive stock of all OEM Mercury, Mercruiser and Evinrude/Johnson parts.

Our launch ramp is open to the public and is the best on the chain. Chain o' Lakes Waterway Stickers are available in our office for your convenience and all manner of boating accessories can be found in our ship's store.
