About Us

Our place on the water

Lakeshore Marine Group was established September 2018 in an effort to bring West Michigan a premier  Brokerage Sales and Marine Service in one location.  We have 20 plus years in brokerage sales expertise and over 30 years of marine repair.  We are located at Great Lakes Marina (a Safe Harbor Marina) in Muskegon, MI.   Our brokerage division (Lakeshore Yacht Sales) offers excellent commission rates, targeted marketing strategies, and on the water vessel orientation, boat handling / maneuvering, and docking lessons.   Our service department (Lakeshore Marine Repair) is second to none at a very competitive rate. 

Lakeshore Yacht Sales

Dave & I have owned and operated Lakeshore Yacht Sales since May of 2010.  At that time, we had both been in the Marine Industry for quite some time.  Dave owned a detailing company, and I worked in boat sales (new & used).  We wanted to create a business structure that would allow us to sell boats and service our customers.  We are not a high volume brokerage outfit.  We are here to service the boats we sell and grow relationships with our clients.   We have worked hard to establish an honest, hard working reputation.  In 2015 the Better Business Bureau reached out to us and offered us an A+ rating due to our time in the business and the reviews we were getting.  

We are excited to partner with Kevin and be able to extend our services to not only our brokerage customers, but all boaters in and around the area.

“Getting you on the Water, Keeping you on the Water”

Jamie L. Souders

"I am extremely excited to get to know not only each and every one of you, but your boat as well. I feel that the Service Department affords me the opportunity to get to know even more of our boaters and I look forward to forming those new relationships. For over 20 years, I have been selling and servicing boats and feel blessed to be able to work in a field I am so passionate about.“
