SkipperBud’s purchased a 10,000-square-foot service center in Pewaukee, Wis., that features six service bays, a parts department, a customer waiting lounge and parking for customer walk‐ins and boat drop‐offs.

SkipperBud’s said the new service center, a block from the Pewaukee dealership, will allow it to meet growing demand from Lake Country boaters.

Many boaters are looking for stability with their sales or service providers because of dealership turnover in the Lake Country area during the past several years, SkipperBud’s president Mike Pretasky Jr. said in a statement.

“Our proven record of award-winning customer service has driven many new customers through our doors. We simply outgrew our service facility because of the increased number of boats we are servicing and storing. With a shorter season in the Midwest, boaters don’t want to lose a weekend due to a repair. It just made sense to expand our footprint and technician base significantly,” Pretasky added.
