There’s no better time of year than summertime in Coeur d’Alene, and the highlight for most is getting out on the lake. For those wanting to spend more time on the water this season, look no further than Hagadone Marine Center. Located on Blackwell Island and offering the largest boat inventory in the Inland Northwest, it is the largest on-water dealership in Coeur d’Alene, Spokane and the Pacific Northwest region. From the finest in new and used yachts, pontoon boats, sport boats and wakeboarding boats, their selection is unmatched. Paired with their professional staff, a trip to Hagadone Marine Center will leave a lasting impression of impeccable quality and service.
“We really want to create a boating lifestyle that brings families together,” says Craig Brosenne, president of Hagadone Marine Group.
With a focus on maximizing their clients’ fun on the water while minimizing the stress, Hagadone Marine Group handles it all, from rentals to sales, classic wood boats to polished new wakeboard crafts, the smallest service detail to a major rebuild.
“The art of serving is in the roots of our company because the Hagadone Marine is owned by Hagadone Hospitality / Hagadone Corporation,” says Brosenne. “We have a long heritage of quality services and products. We have the capability to provide a boater with everything they need at one location.”
The waterfront showroom features seven premium boat lines to include Malibu, Axis, Harris, Cobalt, Regal and Chris Craft, and built in-house Coeur d’Alene Custom wood boats. Whether you are looking for a sterndrive or inboard motor, they have what you are looking for. And all boats come Coast Guard ready.
Just as you wouldn’t purchase a car without first getting behind the wheel and taking it out for a drive, their prime on-the-water location allows their customers a chance to personally test out the entire new stock of boats, from wakeboarding to open bows to pontoons, as well as a full line of pre-owned boats.
“We make the experience as easy and pleasant as possible,” says Brosenne, who has been with the Hagadone Hospitality Corporation for 20 years; 12 years as president of Hagadone Marine Group. He takes pride in what he and his team provide for their customers.
With an award-winning service department, factory-trained technicians and comprehensive boat repair, maintenance and warranty services, this is your one-stop shop for all of your water recreational needs.
They provide it all including boat delivery, mechanical, upholstery, rigging and detailing, as well as professional boat winterizing, boat hauling and launching services and secure boat storage. Customers looking for boat accessories can visit the Blackwell Pro Shop, which has everything from wakesurf boards, water skis, tubes, lines, fenders and more.
The service center has more than 20 bays with 18 technicians, where their systems and processes are efficiency driven. “They can work on any brand and anything that goes on the water, and our certified technicians are trusting and accurate, each offering their individual talents,” says Brosenne.
"We never rest. Every single day we show up determined to improve things for our customers, our employees and our ownership,” says Brosenne. “Personally, I love interacting with our customers—many of whom are on their fourth or fifth boat with us—as they log summer after summer of precious family time on the water. I also appreciate being surrounded by high-caliber team members and watching them grow. Our company succeeds because of our people, starting at the top with owner Duane Hagadone and his vision of excellence."
He adds: “We are a team, and our customers are part of the family, so every opportunity that we have to make sure they are able to make the best of their time on the water, we take! That time is full of memories being made, fun being had and adventures being enjoyed. The reward is being a part of the lifestyle that brings an abundance of joy to us and our boating family.”
