  • "Pete and the guys at RecStation:
    Thank you for getting me the replacement parts for my trolling motor. You hit it out of the park for us. The products are only as good as the support behind the brand and you guys were fast and on point. Thanks again! Feel free to hit me up with any fishing reports or reviews or anything else!

  • "Excellent experience with this group. They accommodated everything I threw at them, and I did throw a lot at them.
    1. Sold me the perfect boat for what I was wanting to do, and more.
    2. Boat didn’t run like I thought it should, they took it back and made it right.
    3 still had doubts, and they were willing to work with me on another beautiful boat they had just received.
    4. Always replied to my emails, text or phone calls the same day, usually within 5-10 minutes.
    5. Meet me in Rapid to save me a little driving time.
    6. Had the water toys we needed to get going on the water the same day.
    This group has there A-game on when it comes to boating. I’m new at the wakesurfing experience and Shawn had, from what I could tell, good advice from the boards to the driving. I appreciated all the advice and recommendations they gave. Thanks Rec Station and staff. (Purchased used Sugar Sand Oasis jet boat June 2019)"

  • "I want to give a huge shout out to the folks at RecStation! What an amazing bunch of people! My boys and I were welcomed the minute we walked in the door and throughout our stay. Devon helped get me going and Shawn was able to take a rolling ball the next day and help me seal the deal on a 2019 Crestliner Commander. Misty was able to make the magic work behind the scenes and even went out of her way to help me with unrelated business. All the staff my boys and I encountered were outstanding, the professionalism, along with the needed laugh was refreshingly pleasant. I look forward to getting my new boat along with all the accessories that are being placed. Although I traveled from Fort Peck Montana, I found friends next door that opened up their beautiful facility and made my day a breeze! Great job! Most Sincerely, TG (Purchased Crestliner 2050 Commander Summer 2019)"

  • "RE: 2018 Crestliner 1750 Fishhawk.
    I like everything about this boat! The paint job is awesome along with the detailing. I wipe it down after each day of use. it is easy to get the water spots off and shines right up. it is easy to handle in 3 to 4 foot waves, smaller waves it cuts through them like a "hot knife through butter". The engine runs great, there have been numerous times that I have forgot to turn off the big motor while using the electric motor because it idles so quiet. The kicker motor runs great, and steers effortlessly as well as the big motor. I like all the storage space, especially the rod storage. I might add that I bought this boat without seeing it! It was ordered and designed over the phone and internet. I put all my faith in you guys regarding the type of boat I needed to perform on the Missouri River. I never saw the boat till I came to pick it up. You came through like a "Rock Star" Shawn!! Over all this is a A++++ boat. there isn't anything I dislike about this boat!!!! I had 50 days on the water last season in all kinds of weather and caught a pile of fish!!"

  • "I bought an used Premier Pontoon,. Had Shawn and crew customize into a fishing pontoon. They were patient and helpful as this my first fishing vessel. They have yet to go over it and explain the workings to me, but it is in storage and when I pick it up, they will do so.
    Misty is a very pleasant person to meet and deal with! A wonderful dealership to work with and they stock everything one might need"

  • "Purchased a different boat and Rec Station was fantastic throughout the process. Shawn and all the staff at Rec Station have always been fantastic to deal with over the years. They always get my business whether buying a boat or as simple as a life jacket. Rec Station always goes above and beyond in everything they do and it is appreciated. Thanks again....

Shawn was great to deal with and we would recommend him and Rec Station to anyone interested in purchasing a boat."

  • "I haven't been an easy customer. I am relatively new to the boating/fishing lifestyle. Shawn took the time to explain what makes Crestliner boats the best. I was shown huge value in a used boat on the lot, and i was hooked. The staff at rec station continue to answer my questions to make my fishing boat fun and usable for my expectations.

  • "I live in California and needed a part to my boat trailer and the trailer company would not sell me direct. They gave me 4 Boat Dealers/Distributors to choose from. I selected 2 from Colorado, thinking if I go to the big city, I will have better luck. One was in Denver and one in Grand Junction. I could not even get a call back from either of these locations. The rude guy told me he would call me back and never did. I called him back the next day and he hung up on me. I tried my luck with Recreation Station and right off the bat, was greeted by a wonderful woman named Misty. She was pleasant to deal with and told me she had to research the part and would get back to me the next day. She called me back the next day to tell me the company had not gotten back to her but she was still working on it. The next day I called her back and she had already emailed me a parts schematic to choose from. We sat on the phone together while she made suggestions, helped me order what I needed, took my credit card and the next day I had another email with confirmation and tracking. What a great experience. Thanks Misty. You are a prime example of what customer service should be. Thank you....."

I was able to find a nice Suzuki dirtbike for a low price. The financing was easy and the friendly service meant for a painless experience. (purchased Suzuki RM-Z450 in 2014)"

  • "Just brought home a good used YarCraft 1785 from Shawn and crew at RecStation. At the time, I was thinking about moving into a better set up but like a lot of folks in the winter, started out by going to the Crestliner web site and started building my idea of the perfect rig for the kind of waters I fish. More boat than I could swing right now but hey, we can all dream. Well through that search, I got an email from Shawn letting me know that if I was looking for a different boat, let him know and he would see what he could put together. That led to a link to his web site and a look at what he had on hand. So I made a trip up to Spearfish to take a look. While he would have been more than happy to sell me one of his new Crestliners, he showed me a nice clean used YarCraft, that as he put it, would get me by until I could swing that 1850, I built on line. Long story short, he made me a good trade on my rig and had his mechanic install the new IPILOT, I wanted on the bow. RecStation is a great dealership and someday I will be back to take him up on his offer to put me in that new Crestliner 1850. For now I'm more than happy with the deal we made on the YarCraft 1785. Thanks Shawn and Crew."

  • "Shawn: I just wanted to let you know of the great service you and your staff are providing. Recently I dropped off my pontoon for winterizing, new custom cover and storage. Garick met me in the parking lot and was very helpful and friendly getting me unhooked. He also was very thorough and helpful while answering my questions. Misty is a refreshing voice on the phone and in person. In times when it is difficult to find anyone who really cares anymore, she does a great job. You could write a book on customer service and quality products. The example you set should be a model for all businesses. Thanks again, Doyle S."

  • "Always awesome to deal with Shawn and crew. We bought our first boat...a used Princecraft...from RecStation a few years back. Since then it traveled the Columbia River, Wyoming, Montana and spent months in the Missouri on Lake Oahe right before we traded it in for a fancy-schmancy kicker motor and Trollmaster on another boat. Wow! Love it. The Trollmaster made our recent trip to the Columbia so much easier. Of course the team set it up pretty and works like a charm. Thanks, Shawn and Crew!"
