    We are booking up fast in the factory but we can still get a new rig done in 8-10weeks, but orders are steadily starting to stack up!!!!  The New Generation Pro Drive Motors and Pro Drive EFI Motors have been out all this past season and have proven themselves to be more then anyone expected.  This might be the year to consider upgrading to a new Pro-Drive.

NEW!!!!

We spent four weeks this past summer remodeling our showroom in order to add new products our customers have been asking for. We are now a BIG FOOT Factory Outlet - we stock Big Foot field and Goose floaters at all times.  Our prices are below the allowed advertised price - lets put it this way, we are right next to the factory and we have price shopped, you will not get the USA made full size Big Foot Goose decoys cheaper anywhere (if you want quantities over 4 dozen of any one style, call ahead and we will have them hear when you come in). Big Foots are available for in store pickup or shipped direct to you.

We have also stocked our showroom with all the stuff you need to complete your hunting rig including seven different colors of raffia grass, Mr. Heaters and all the hoses and hard to find parts to build a heater system, custom heater boxes, push poles, Camo Flex Limbs, camo fabric, etc.  We stock the stuff you use.

 

Production times back to 8-10 weeks for standard rigs and 10-12 weeks for custom rigs, so now is the time to make your design decisions and book your new custom rig so you can use it this season.  Don't need your rig that soon, book it now and you can name your delivery date and lock in your build spot. 

We have some new boat offerings for Big Water hunting and have expanded our Prowler Line to include a 44" bottom

Prowler Extreme sneak boat!  This

boat is available in 15-18 length, is

22" deep and can handle up to a 36hp

surface drive or 40hp outboard!

With our increased orders we remind potential customers to call early and book your orders early for set delivery.  We have adding new welding and support positions but we will not "speed things up" at the expense of quality, so book your orders soon.  

With the increase orders for new Phowler Boats and Blinds continue to take in a nice selection of used rigs that need to go fast, check them out and give us a call if you see something you like.

We are currently stocking PD motors, Copperhead Motors and Suzuki Motors - Including the new Copperhead with clutch option and will try to keep motors in stock through the hunting season.

 

 

Here at Illowa Marine we are fully stocked with used trade in rigs that need to go to make room for fall trades.  Check out some of the great deals on our Pre-Owned Page.

Still thinking about a new Rig for fall, don't wait, we are stacked up with new custom boat/blind and motor orders, but we still can get you into a new rig before the regular season.  Call today and let us help you design you new rig!

We believe sportsmen expect a lot from the equipment they invest in.

At Illowa Marine, we take the time to listen, answer your questions, and design a sportsman package specific to your unique needs and expectations. We don’t sell low cost products or product lines with high dealer margins. Instead, we pledge to find, test, and offer only the best products that meet the needs of you: the sportsman. 


In today’s fast-paced markets, we still believe that the customer always comes first; and it’s that personalized attention that continues to set us apart. We stock models not readily accessible from other dealers and we continually look for new product lines that keep our sportsmen on the cutting edge. Ninety percent of our customers custom order boats specific to their needs, and almost eighty percent of our sales come from customer referrals. 


We offer product lines that are time-tested and innovative to the hunting, fishing, and marine markets. When we offer you suggestions on boat and motor options, we offer our suggestions from first hand experience: 1) We have run the product, 2) We know what the product will do or won't do, 3) We won’t sell you a product that does not meet your specific needs.

At Illowa Marine, we are committed to the following:

  1. Offering you the best products we can find
  2. Making ourselves the most informed and knowledgeable dealers we can be
  3. Informing you about all your options 
  4. Backing everything we sell with exceptional service and support 

We don’t expect your business; we expect we will earn it!
