“I’m a lifelong sailor. Bought my first large powerboat at age 60 and was a little hesitant. Kevin McNally and his staff went the extra mile to reassure me and make sure everything was perfect with the boat, a Cruisers 4450. By far, the nicest people I have met in the Yachting industry. Would recommend them to my best friends. Buying a boat from Bay Marine is easy and pleasurable.”

 “Awesome staff! Very Reliable and will go the extra mile for you!”

“Great people to work with, esp Chris. He made sure we got the boat of our dreams at the price we could afford. Honest, hardworking marina….wish we lived closer so we could use it all the time.”

” I just wanted to say that this year’s “pull out” was probably one of the best I have ever had, despite the rain.  Your crew did a great job handling the boat and I just wanted to say thanks! Looking forward to getting lots of stuff done on it over the winter.”

  “I am new to boating and even though I didn’t purchase my boat from Kevin McNally at Bay Marine, you wouldn’t know it.  He has gone above and beyond spending time showing me how to drive my new V-drive boat.  Helping me drive/dock in for winter storage at Bay Marine on short notice because I just lost my nerve and didn’t want to damage my new boat after driving from Belmont Harbor in Chicago.  The rest of the crew answered all of my questions and were very patient with me.  They are very competitive in their Chicagoland pricing and I am happy to say I choose Bay Marine because of my overall experience with their team.”

“Chris DePrey at Bay Marine took the time to really understand what we were looking for in our first yacht. If he didn’t know the answer to our question, he didn’t make something up – he told us he would find out and get back to us – and he did! We knew after our first visit with Chris that even if we didn’t buy a Riviera Yacht, we were going to buy a boat from Chris at Bay Marine.”

 “I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with your crew at the Waukegan facility. I had a problem with my boat as soon as I launched the first of April and contacted them. Bob explained the time frame they could work on it and updated me almost daily. He fit me into his schedule even though this is a busy time of year for him. Boat was fixed on time and at a reasonable cost. Will recommend you guys to all my friends in the harbor.”

 “Bob and his team at Bay Marine Chicago Yachting Center provided exceptional customer service. Often times when you are trouble shooting with a service provider, they make you feel like a number or don’t bother calling you back. Bob made me feel like I was his only client (which I clearly was not) and kept me informed throughout the process. I have already recommended Bay Marine to many of my dock mates and I will continue to do so.”
