After serving boaters for decades since 1956, in the year 2000, Pistakee Lake Marina was acquired by Patrick Enterprises, Inc. In 2009 we expanded into retail new and used boat sales and acquired the Larson™ line of boats, also during that year we re branded the dealership to Five Star Boat Center™ in order to better recognize the fact that we now sell boats, service boats, store boats and maintain a private and gated 105 slip maria. We are the marina of choice for large boats, because our marina is located in a private cove, and secured by a perimeter fence system. Our 21,000 sq foot facility and 7 acres of marina property makes us one of the largest marinas in Northern Illinois. We provide boat storage for over 400 boats during the winter season. Five Star Boat Center is locally 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 marina with boat slip rentals for the Chain O Lakes, Fox Lake and Pistakee Lake. Featuring the best location and closest marina coming north out of the suburbs, 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 fenced and gated entrance, with 24-hour security system.
