Boat Options to Fit Your Unique Lifestyle

There are a TON of options when it comes to boats. From pontoons to cruisers to deck boats, there is a wide range of boat styles to pick from. Our Lake of the Ozarks boat dealership carries a number of boat types to best fit the needs of our customers. Just like your lifestyle varies from the next person, your preference in boat type may too. Below, Iguana Boat Sales has provided a break down of the boat types we carry to help you narrow down the right fit for your unique wants and needs!

Cruiser Boats

Cruisers provide the joy of living on the water with the ability to handle deeper and rougher water. Comforts include a galley or kitchen, a head or toilet, and one or more berths or sleeping areas. Other common features are air conditioning, heating, hot water, electrical power from a generator, and a hookup for quick access to shore power. Cruisers can range in length from 23 to 60 feet depending on the model. If you are looking for an experience on the water that delivers style, performance, and craftsmanship, a cruiser is for you.

Runabout Boats

Runabouts can be used for racing or for pleasure activities like fishing and water skiing. Some familiar runabout boats are bowriders and cuddy cabins. A bowrider is equipped with extra seats and forward access to the bow. Cuddy cabins are ideal for day-cruising, watersports, and other on-the-water activities such as fishing and swimming. If you are looking for a great family boat to relax in the sun on the lake, then a runabout is your speed.

Pontoons and Tritoons

Many pontoons are still two-tube watercraft, but now those tubes are sleek and carry lifting strakes and keels. Several manufacturers have added a third pontoon, that performs like V-hull boats. Pontoons and tritoons have become more sophisticated and include many state-of-the-art amenities including elegant seating, movable tables, wet bars, powerful stereos, and even LED under deck lighting. If you are looking for a boat that is capable of taking friends and family out for a cruise and some casual fishing, then a pontoon might be for you.

Deck Boats

If you are torn between an agile bowrider and a crowd-friendly tritoon, a deck boat might be the answer for you. A deck boat has a wide deck, with fast maneuverable hulls that look and perform like bowriders. However, they retain much of their beam further forward, with bows that don't come to a bowrider's sharp point.  This allows more seating capacity and creates a very stable platform. As deck boats have become bigger and broader and pontoons have become more powerful and posh, the two watercraft categories have drawn closer. When you are looking for a family boat that does it all, from cruising and fishing to wakeboarding, choose a deck boat.

Wakeboard Boats 

If you are an adrenaline junkie and prefer to catch air than to cruise down the lake, a wakeboard boat is for you. Wakeboard boats have inboard engines, which are ideal for watersports, as the propeller is under the boat protecting the riders from danger. There are some boats that combine the best parts of wakeboard, wakesurf, and water-ski boats for the legitimate watersports lovers.

Now's the perfect time to start checking out our selection of boats for sale at the Lake of the Ozarks. You have plenty of time to make a decision and have your new boat ready for the big season! Stop by our boat dealership at the Lake of the Ozarks today to check out our selection in person. One of our team members will be able to help you find the exact boat for your unique needs!

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!
