John's experience at Saylorville Lake Marina and as an Iowa Boat Dealer offers a wealth of knowledge in all areas of the boating industry from service to new and used boats for sale in Des Moines and all of the Midwest. John has been in love with boats from the beginning, with his dad being the first Mercury Outboard Iowa Boat Dealer in Des Moines. In addition to the experience brought to the dealership by John, the employees of this Iowa Boat Dealer are experienced and motivated.

At Brightwell’s Boathouse we do our best to offer a wide selection of used boats for sale in Des Moines.
