I want to write my review based on the fork lift operator, Barney. He was one of the quickest I have ever seen operate a fork truck. He was very friendly, polite and respectful of our time. I can be kind of an a-hole sometimes when it comes to my boat, but that was not necessary when dealing with Barney.... More

We rented the double decker pontoon boat for the day and had a great experience. The boat was in fantastic working order. I've unwittingly rented some really old, unreliable boats from places and paid the price for it when I'm sitting in the middle of a lake with an engine that won't start. The folks at the marina went over... More

This place was a joke to deal with. Long story short , check your gas gauge when you leave and watch it when you return. We rented 2 boats , one 22 and one 24, went to the same places with both boats and when we returned them one boat took 30.5 gallons of gas and the other took 16.... More

Rick, I apologize for your experience. First, thank you for renting two tritoons from Dewitt Marine for two day. Second, apologies for the delay in response. We understand your frustration with how this experience was handled and this differences in fuel usage, the 14.5 gallon difference. Let’s review facts: Every rental boat is filled at the end of each rental... More

The prices for labor are crazy and they go by standard times to get the job done. If the mechanic finishes it faster they do not cut the amount of time to reflect this so you could be paying more than necessary for repair work.

Apologies you feel this way. Standard service practices and state law goes by standard time, just like in the auto industry. If the service performed happen to take double the standard time you would only be charged standard time, nothing more. The extra time is at the business's expense. I would be happy to look into this with you and... More

They can handle repairs as well as winter storage. They have the ability to come get you if your stranded in the water. We have gotten parts from them as well......boat plug, fuses etc. They are very nice and will work to quickly get you back on the water.

We booked a boat for Torch Lake through Dewitt and were very pleased not only with the quality of the boat that we got but also the friendliness of the staff.

The staff at Dewitt Marine is First Class. The entire staff was friendly, kind and helpful when we rented the pontoon boat last Sunday. The boat and staff was a nice treat for our vacation. Torch lake has to be the most clear lake I have ever been on. If you want to enjoy a day on a Great Lake... More
