Marking 60 years of business, Spring Brook Marina celebrates a history of success and family values

Starting off as a small family-owned business on the Illinois River and a dealer for small pleasure craft boats, Spring Brook Marina has now expanded to a full-service marina with three protected harbors and over 200 slips. With decades of growth and experience, Spring Brook has developed through the years by adding massive storage space and currently represents a host of luxury yacht manufacturers such as Prestige Yachts, Jeanneau Powerboats, Sirena Yachts, Pardo Yachts, and Fairline Yachts, throughout the Great Lakes market.


The award-winning marina kicked off their 60 year anniversary celebration in March by welcoming guests to an open house at their main location where the business was born. “Guests were able to see the latest from Prestige Yachts, Pardo Yachts and Barletta Pontoon Boats,” says Kyle Stenzel, President of Spring Brook Marina“ as well as talk to our sales staff about available pre-owned inventory and incoming new boats.”


With a long history in their region, Stenzel and the Spring Brook team work hard to participate in their community. Through providing small local events, the staff tries to keep connected to the community of patrons who helped build their business while trying to grow boating within their marina and throughout the Great Lakes.

“There is something to be said about providing a product and service to families that helps them bond and create lasting memories,” says Stenzel. “We just want to be a small part of that memory and ensure their experience on the water is exceptional. If we can consistently do that, there is no way we can’t accomplish our goals.”


The marina has become a popular place for boaters from Chicago and elsewhere to store their boats with guaranteed service and repair during the winter months. The dedicated service department is committed to providing customers with elite service. Spring Brook Marina also offers a VIP service phone number that members can call and have a professional technician help them through any issue if they need assistance.
