"The new ownership has made it even better. I had them do a complete detail while in storage and couldn't have asked for a better job. It looked like a new boat when we picked it up for the start of the season. I had them do some mechanical work while it was stored for the winter and couldn't tell they were even on the boat, other than the new parts that were installed on the engines. Nothing is cheap when it comes to boats but I find them to be fair with their prices and advice."

"Outstanding powerboat training services! We have used the powerboat training from Scott Souders & Chicago Yacht Works and have been very pleased with their services. We received good training from our boat dealer, took the 8-hour US Coast Guard Auxiliary class, and hired a captain for additional training (20 hours – docking, etc.), but we now wanted more training on various topics:

1. Coastal Cruising & Night Navigation, Docking, Anchoring
2. Marine Radio Operation
3. Locks & River Passage
4. Play Pen Anchoring
5. Marine Weather
6. Marine Electronics – Garmin control, VHF, radar
7. General Maintenance – Strainers, seacock, engine & generator info, etc.

Based on our schedule, we hired Scott to work with us on our boat, during the week. He did an outstanding job covering all the topics that we needed, and he was able to provide both technical and practical information. He has excellent depth of experience and it was a pleasure to work with him; very professional"

"I would give you a 4.9. The yard layout was very organized, allowing easy access to the boat. Your office provided frequent email updates. Nice service.

Only room for improvement , I was unaware of the drop in procedures (as a new boat owner) I thought I had to be present during drop in to ensure no leaks, to pull the back-stay have bumpers out etc.so I was not a prepared as I wanted to be."

"I have stored my boats and waverunners at Chicago Yacht yard since 2002. Needless to say I've seen the yard go through many changes. I sincerely feel that the current management, technicians and office staff is the best that the yard has ever had to offer. I do all my own work on my boat. I always begin spending tons of time at the boat yard around the middle of March. My goal is always to be floating by April 1. The staff, especially Nancy, Rachel, and Rob were more than accommodating towards my unusal habit of putting my boat in so early. I feel they did everything they could to work with me in anyway possible to help me achieve my boating goals for the 2016 season. Thank you Chicago Yacht yard."
