Winds shift at a pillar of the Pacific Northwest maritime industry, Marine Servicenter. Dan and Lisa Krier begin new era as owners, but continue a long tradition of service.

Dan and Lisa Krier.

Congratulations to Dan and Lisa Krier on the purchase of Marine Servicenter from founders Jim and Jeanna Rard. Dan is no stranger to Marine Servicenter, as he had been the VP of Sales & Marketing for the company under the Rard’s ownership for more than 21 years. Dan and his wife, Lisa, were recently presented the opportunity to purchase the assets of the company, which was started in 1977, since the founders wanted to retire. 

Dan and Lisa plan to run the company in the same vein for which it has been known for more than 44 years, with the uncompromising top priority of taking exceptional care of customers and providing top notch after-sales service to new boat buyers. The Kriers will retain the company name, saying “service is our middle name.”

Marine Servicenter has been the Jeanneau North American Dealer of the Year in three of the past five years (2016, 2019, 2020), and is on track to continue to achieve this prestigious award again in 2021.
