Hennepin Marine opened its doors all the way back in 1960's in the small town of Hennepin, IL along the Illinois River. At the time, Hennepin Marine was a single man operation. Lynn purchased the business in 1974 and this all began to change. With comittments to customer service and building a qualified, knowledgeable staff, Lynn hired a staff and together they built a well known reputation that is second to none! Since then, we have changed buildings, hired a wonderful staff and expanded our entire operation. In 2005, Rich & Nic joined Lynn in the ownership of Hennepin Marine. Together, they will carry Hennepin Marine into the future! Currently, we have two large indoor showrooms, large parts & accessory departments, and our award winning service department! Our customers travel from all over the state of Illinois, bordering states, and even all over the United States for Hennepin Marine.
