Dealer Spotlight: Mt. Houston Marine
Shopping for a new boat and reaching a buying decision is never easy. We're talking major investment and there's always the question of dealer relations after the sale; not to mention whether the model we select will continue to be the boat of our dreams after a few seasons.

Obviously, the dealer has great input here. Office staff and service team become key players for as long as you own your boat. Mt. Houston Marine invites you to drop by and learn how they can serve you; before, during, and after the sale.

Mt. Houston Marine was founded by Rudy and Carolee Kleimann and have operated their dealership in the same location since 1972. In business for 37 years, their reputation has been bolstered through the quality, service, and special attention that only a family-owned business can offer.

Along with a large selection of top quality boats from well-respected brands, Mt. Houston Marine also offers boating accessories and supplies, repair and service, and even covered boat stalls for rent.

Rudy is a lifelong fisherman. The decision to enter the boat business grew from a love of the sport and fervent desire to provide a solid future for his family. Today, under his guidance, Carolee and daughter, Leah Bradshaw, along with general manager Danny Thrower, remain the heart and soul of the operation.

Mt. Houston Marine's stellar reputation was earned through exceptional service provided to loyal repeat customers and is reflected in the many awards bestowed by the boat and engine brands they represent. Their total lineup is designed specifically to serve saltwater fishermen.

Mt. Houston was recognized as the top dealer in the U.S. by Maverick Boat Company and named "Best in Class" by Yamaha Motor Company, both awards coming during model year 2008. They have also earned the coveted 5-Star Yamaha Dealer rating.

The lineup at Mt. Houston Marine currently includes, Pathfinder, Maverick, Hewes, and Cobia boats along with Yamaha outboards for inshore and offshore anglers. Rumor has it that another exciting boat brand will be added soon.

Their rigging and service center is also staffed by highly trained and experienced professionals. Chief mechanic, Terry Strack, has been with the Kleimanns for 26 years. Rigger, Alvin Francis, boasts 20 years of dedicated service to the firm's valued clients.
