Unlike other dealers, Boat Works is a low flare, low pressure, no hassle place to buy your first, 5th or last boat.  We don’t have salesman – you’ll be dealing with the owner throughout the entire process.  We work tirelessly to ensure you leave here with a smile on your face, and the boat of your dreams in tow.

We pride ourselves on our small-town values, and will work with you as much as you need to gain both your confidence and your  business.  We have been  family owned, operated and proudly serving the Clinton – Bond County area for the last 16 years.

Boat Works is conveniently located just a few blocks from Carlyle Lake, and we have everything you need; including new / used boats, motors, accessories, storage and service. We can also help you buy, sell or trade your boat with in-house financing available.

Our service shop is filled with Factory Trained Technicians on all types of engines, who have over 15 years of experience to provide the service and repairs necessary to keep your boat on the water.

The team here at Boat Works is also proud to have become one of the top dealers in the country for Phoenix Bass Boats. You will also find that we have competitive pricing on our other products, including: G3 Boats, War Eagle, Mercury, Yamaha, Evinrude and more.

Boat Works is your one-stop boat shop with a small town friendly atmosphere. Drop us a line, and we’ll help get you on the water.
