In 2000 Pistakee Lake Marina was acquired by Patrick Enterprises, Inc. In 2009 we expanded into retail boat sales and acquired the Larson™ line of boats, also during that year we rebranded the dealership to Five Star Boat Center™ in order to better recognize the fact that we now sell, service, store and maintain a private and gated 105 slip marina, which includes summer dry storage (On Demand) service as well as the only inside heated storage facility on the Chain-O Lakes. Our 21,000 sq foot facility and 7 acres of marina property makes us one of the largest marinas in Northern Illinois. Five Star Boat Center is family owned and operated. Once you experience the Five Star Difference you will be a customer for life.

Five Star Boat Center is the clear leader in providing a premier luxury marina with slip rentals for Chain O Lakes, Lake Geneva, and Illinois boaters. Featuring the best location and closest marina coming north out of Chicago, new pier system, blacktop parking right next to your boat, Wi-Fi, air conditioned bathrooms, Morretties™ restaurant on the east side of the property, fully perimeter gated, with 24-hour security. Covenants protect our marina and provide you a resort-like atmosphere.

Five Star Boat Center features a full range of preowned boats and is an authorized Larson™ dealer and repair service.  Our territory now includes most of Southern Wisconsin, so we are a top Madison Larson dealer as well as a top Milwaukee Larson dealer.

Five Star Boat Center is an authorized Illinois boat service, sales, and repair center for Larson boats™ Mercruiser™ and Volvo Penta™.  As an authorized dealer we can perform warranty repairs on these engines, as well as other makes and models of engines and boats.  We also provide boat and watercraft asset recovery to lenders, wholesalers, and recovery agents.
