All About the Premier Boat Dealer at the Lake of the Ozarks

We're all about our customers at Iguana Marine Group! The best boat dealership at the Lake of the Ozarks offers a wide range of services and products to our customers. We LOVE boating and know how much you do too! That's why we work hard to ensure you and your crew can experience the boating life, the way it should be! Take a look below to learn more about Iguana Boat Sales and how our company is there for our customers.



Iguana started our Lake of the Ozarks boat dealership with one goal in mind:  to deliver you exceptional value, exclusive selection, and above all, outstanding customer service.  We have selected some of the best boat brands to offer you the right combination of price, quality, and value.

When buying a boat, choose the best boat for your lifestyle from our exclusive collection of Cruisers Yachts or the Cruisers Sport Series.  The prestige and luxury of owning any Cruisers Boat speaks for itself.  If wakeboarding or wakesurfing is what you are looking for the Malibu and Axis lines are the boats for you, Rinker is known for not only family runabout boats but also cruisers.  The Hurricane Deck Boat is currently the #1 selling deck boat in the country. If cruising the lake or river is more of what you are looking for check out our line of tritoons from AquaPatio, Sweetwater, and SanPan.  We don’t want to forget the fisherman out there so we also have PolarKraft in our lineup which is one of the best aluminum fishing boats available.  We have recently added FloeCraft to our line up of boats.  We truly believe the Afina 3950 is the most versatile boat on the market right now and will be a great boat for Lake of the Ozarks.  As the #5 Cruisers dealer worldwide and the exclusive Midwest Rinker dealer, we have something for everyone including PWC’s and pre-owned boats.


As our company continues to grow we have expanded our sales locations to the St. Louis area.  Customers can now find the same level of customer service with our partner, Stateamind Water Sports in Hazelwood, MO.

Iguana’s expansion continues with a brand-new Parts and Service Department.  With certified and trained mechanics on our service staff, we offer services from winterizations, bottom painting, all the way up to engine rebuilds.  Our Service Department is available at 4 locations.  Visit them at the 1 MM, the Northshore at the 5.5 MM, the old Nauti Marine in Sunrise Beach at the 12 MM, Four Seasons Marina, and spring 2018 we will be offering Service and Sales from Millstone Marina.

In October 2015 our boat sales lot and showroom from Lake Ozark to 4363 Osage Beach Parkway in Osage Beach, MO.  With this move we were able to increase our inventory exponentially with a large outdoor space and an indoor showroom where you can find everything from water toys to water pumps.  Our growing team is committed to serving our customers and the boating lifestyle.

No matter what kind of boat, boating accessory, or boating service you're after, you can find it at Iguana Boat Sales!

Prepare Your Boat For Boating Season

While we're just now getting into the coldest part of the year, it's time to think about preparing your boat for spring! As we count down the days until boating season, you can start planning your boat maintenance at the Lake of the Ozarks. Although we are the best boat dealership at the Lake of the Ozarks, we also specialize in boating maintenance and service. Take a look below to learn some ways you start to prepare your boat for the upcoming season!


Wash Your Boat


Regularly washing your boat with soap and cleaners made specifically for boats is important in order to protect your boat’s finish. The Lake of the Ozarks has fresh water, but if you happen to take your boat to a salt water location, make sure to clean it with fresh water after every outing to remove the salt residue. If left on, the salt will corrode metal, fasteners and other hardware. It will also ruin the gel coat.

Change Oil


Just like with a car, boats need to have their oil changed. The frequency varies by model, but typically you will want to change it every 12 months or every 100 hours – whichever comes first. Also like a car, you can change the oil yourself, or you could just bring it to Iguana! If you do not know how to change your boat’s oil or if you just don’t want to deal with the mess it creates, brings it to the best boat service center at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Check the Propeller


If you have an outboard or stern drive boat, it is a good idea to check the propeller as part of your pre-launch routine. Check to make sure that discarded fishing line hasn’t been wrapped around the propeller shaft by removing the propeller several times during the season. If you discover that it has, inspect for damage as it could cause gear case leaks. If you do find issues, bring your boat to the best Lake of the Ozarks’ boat service shop and we’ll get you back on the water in no time.


How Iguana Boat Sales Can Help:


  • Oil Changes
  • Drive Services
  • Boat Detailing
  • Boat Buff & Wax
  • Bottom Paint
  • Prop Rebuild or Replace
  • Canvas Repairs
  • Vinyl Repairs
  • Winterize
  • Dewinterize
  • Gelcoat Repair
  • Water Pump Impeller Replacement


Now that you know some ways you can better prepare your boat for the upcoming season, you're ready to schedule your boat maintenance or service with Iguana Marine Group! We look forward to working on your vessel and getting it geared up for another great summer at the Lake of the Ozarks!
