Our History

Its current owners, Jerry Ipjian and Jack Irvin, purchased Great Lakes Yacht Sales in 1996.   After purchasing the company, Jerry took his knowledge and entrepreneurship with his previous business endeavors and molded them with Jacks 45+ years of marine business experience and dedication to the boating industry.   Without hesitation, the partners decided to redevelop the business location to allow the company to grow.  After years of preparation, the architectural plan was put into place and construction began.   Without compromising our company’s focus of putting our customers and employees first, Jerry and Jack began a long and enduring experience of maneuvering our company’s everyday activities around the reconstruction of our buildings.   Upon completion of construction, they continued to take their wealth of knowledge and sought out opportunities from several boat manufacturers.   Today, in their state-of-the-art facility in Kenosha, as well as our stores in Fox Lake,  we are proud to offer only the highest quality brands as well as award winning service departments.
