In accordance with the governor’s order, Lynden Sports Center’s showroom is not open to the public. However, since servicing boats (including DNR, police, and search and rescue boats) has been declared a critical infrastructure service, we are continuing to maintain minimum basic operations. Our salesmen can provide virtual boat tours. To visit our parts store online, click here. For any questions, please contact us: (616) 997-8888.

Boating is a privilege. Enjoy your time on the water responsibly by adhering to the current guidelines below.

We also appreciate the
insights of Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg.  



In Michigan, you’ll never live too far from water of some kind, and what better way to enjoy the water than be on it? Whether your passion is fishing with the guys or chilling with your family, duck hunting with your dog or hosting a floating birthday party with your grandkids, friends, and neighbors, Lynden Sports Center has the boat to suit. Looking for the perfect boat, or just curious? Come on by and let’s chat!


Friendly and Professional Service
We treat you like we would want to be treated. As a family owned and operated business, we seek to provide service which is personal and professional. In fact, we recently received the President’s Award from Godfrey Pontoons! This award is given to only one dealer out of one hundred and eighty. We were chosen to receive this award because of the positive customer feedback we were given from previous boat buyers.

More volume for us means better service and better prices for you! Not only are we a PLATINUM dealer for Godfrey pontoons, but also the LARGEST dealer for Crestliner in West Michigan. Overall, we have 20% of the fishing boat market share in West Michigan!

  • Jeromy L.

    Lynden is great! I have become a loyal customer over the past few years. It started with parts and accessories for our older pontoon boat. Last year we upgraded to a brand new one. The level of honesty, integrity and high level of customer service is great. The staff is knowledgeable and kind. Even when I break stuff on the boat and have to fix or repair it they are very helpful.

  • Corey O.

    I love these guys… there’s a lot of businesses could learn customer service from this place.

  • Andrew S.

    Excellent customer service, and competitive pricing. I stopped in for a new prop, and the sales representative helped me find one to fit my needs without going over my budget. I really appreciate that he took the time to figure out what I wanted, and did not try to push a more expensive product. Will absolutely be be back for my boating supplies.

  • James H.

    Very friendly and knowledgeable. Went out of their way to solve our problem with our outboard motor. Great price on a replacement plus stored our pontoon for 3 months till spring when they didn’t have to!

  • Ken O.

    Great place to do business with!!

  • Helen B.

    I’ve been shopping pontoons for years and this is the place to go! Great prices, very friendly staff and they really work hard to please. I could not be happier with their service and attention. And, oh yeah, the boat is nice too!

  • Fred N.

    Great people to work with, always have what I need

  • Chad H.

    Great staff, and great service. Went the extra mile to get my boat to me just before a busy weekend, and helped me out with other items after the sale. Thanks!

  • Mickey D.

    …..Robert was there and more than willing to stay a little later to show me the boat I wanted to see. Needless to say I bought it. The people there were great to work with right down to the service department, they answered all my questions and concerns and were very courteous. The service dept was top notch….. Hard to find service like this now a days! Thanks guys!

  • Derek S.

    Excellent buying experience from start to finish. Charles and Doug were both great!

  • Robert H.

    Met the owner of Lynden at GR Boat Show, shopping for a motor upgrade for my pontoon boat. Doug quoted me a price that was far below anyone else at the show (even the dealer I bought my boat from). I jumped on the deal and the deal was set in motion. I set up a time with the service department to have my motor installed, the job was done quickly and at a quality level. I have dealt with a lot of sales and service departments, this was by far the best experience from start to finish I have ever had.

  • Mitch W.

    Great service from Charles and team!! We love our new Hewescraft!!

  • Ashley L.

    We made a trip up from Indiana for the excellent sales experience and customer service. Doug was nothing but kind and helpful. Definitely worth the trip! Highly recommended.

  • Tyler E.

    Customer service is a foundation of this business. Appreciate that Lynden Sports Center is local & family owned. Employees are always eager to help and do anything they can to make you feel valued and important.

  • Brian

    The salesman Charles was able to help me with all the questions I had and get my new boat running perfectly.

  • Amy N.

    Fantastic experience! Charles and his family of employees took great care of us and went above and beyond to make our purchasing experience painless. The tritoon we purchased did not have a changing room from the factory. He sent an employee to our home and he installed one for us. We live 3 hours away. Thanks again Charles. Keep up the great work.

  • Jonathan E.

    We’ve had Lynden service our Fourwinns boat annually now for the past 5+ years (winterizing and repairs). We’ve consistently experienced quality and prompt service and highly recommend them.

  • David P.

    …..I went to Lynden Sports Center and talked with Robert who showed me the perfect boat for me and my family that was in my price range. A brand new 2016 model that he held for me until I received the money….. He was very knowledgeable, kind, and easy to talk to. Doug, the owner of Lynden Sports Center delivered the boat and spent time with me explaining all the features of the boat. He was very patient with me and took his time, and was very knowledgeable. Thank you so much Lynden Sports Center for a job well done.

  • J. K.

    Family owned friendly local business. Doug and Charles really know boats! Great selection and knowledgeable team.

  • Mark E.

    They took the time to ask the important questions of how and where we would be boating, they were trying to sell us what we needed and not just what unit they wanted to get rid of. I couldn’t be more pleased with the entire buying experience we had at Lynden Sports Center….. The after the sales services was great, we needed a few things done to the boat after having it for a couple of weeks, the service department was quick and had us back on the water right away.

  • Vickie H.

    Very impressed with the service dept. Staff is all friendly and make sure your needs are met.

  • Ric C.

    Everyone at Lynden’s is extremely professional. We loved our experience from beginning to delivery.
