“After finding the boat on the Internet and speaking with Rick over the phone we drove from Oklahoma City to pick up the boat. Rick and Tommy could not have been nicer, and treated me as if we were all old friends. After arriving and finding the boat ready to go with some additions that Rick put on specifically for safety on our 7 hour drive returning home we knew we had made the right decision in boat dealers. After learning how much business they did over the Internet and in surrounding states it is clear to me why, this is top-notch customer service clearly practiced as a way of life!”

“The hole gang there where very helpful it was a pleasure “

By: Bruce Kingsland , TX

“I purchased an older pontoon boat from Tommy, and the gang. They were most extremely helpful and patient. It was a great experience, and I will recommend the gang at LBJ Marineland to anybody looking for a boat new or used. They also have an extensive inventory of parts and accessories. Much more than any shop in North Texas. Special thanks to Tommy, Rick, and everyone else at Lake LBJ Marineland. Jason”

“Rick and entire team are friendly and full of knowledge. Our new boat purchase was probably the easiest and quickest shopping experience we have had.on large purchases with the most satisfaction. They know their boats. Tommy took us out on the lake and went over the entire boat in detail and made sure both of us were comfortable driving and handling our new boat. We also had service work done on our old boat. They got it in and out quickly and went through it to make sure it is lake ready. Best boat dealer ever! Thank you all.”

“Great experience buying our first boat! It was a used boat but their customer service in all areas was top notch. If we purchase another boat in the future, it will be from LBJ. Thanks Rick, Tommy, and all your wonderful staff for your help.”

“Being new to Lake LBJ and boating we needed a dealer with patience and the ability to get novices up to speed to enjoy one of the great lakes in Texas. The entire Hartley family (Rick, Mary, Tommy) have been great for us from the start. We have a nice used boat from them that has been reliable from the start and when the time comes to buy a new boat, we won’t shop anywhere else. The service at Lake LBJ Marineland is outstanding and we don’t know where we’d be without Walker’s guidance and help keeping our boat running smooth!”

By: Doug TX

“I located the boat I was looking for on your internet site. After speaking with Rick and getting all of the boat details, I decided to purchase the boat-sight unseen. I live in northern Illinois and was unable to come to TX to pick up the boat for nearly three months but it was happily stored covered at the dealer. Upon my arrival at Lake LBJ Marineland, Walker took us out on the lake for a ride and to familiarize us with the boat. We found his vast knowledge and experience very helpful and informative. Everything concerning the boat was as Rick had described. Overall, probably the best buying experience I’ve ever had for a purchase of this type. It was well worth the 2300 mile round trip drive. I would gladly refer anyone here. Kudos to Rick and the entire staff. “


“I have been doing business with Rick and Tommy for many years on repair and service and have nothing but the best things to say about those experiences. I bought a new Hurricane this year and had a great experience with that also. I love my boat and really appreciate the whole Marineland staff”

By: Bob TX

“My pontoon boat was involved in a flood June 2010 on Lake Dunlap. Purchased the boat new in 2002 from a Dealer in San Antonio who went out of business in May of 2010. Contacted LBJ Marine and talked with a Mr. Hartley explaining that I had extensive damage (water–mud in the motor–radio-speakers-electronics–top crushed as it was cought in the boat lift) and that I had not purchased the boat from him. He told me to bring it on in and he would look at it. Well–I just got it back and let me tell you–the boat looks new–runs as new and everything works and looks simply great. I want to give Mr. Hartley and his entire crew in the Service Department a well earned and hardy thank you. I will recommend this dealership to all of my friends for sales and service.”

“Thanks to all of you especially Rick, Walker and Cooper for getting me going and putting up with me. I wish the best to all! If anybody needs a boat etc. it would be foolish to go anywhere else. Ya’ll have my business!!! Thanks, JTB”

By: John T Mason, TX

“I will never buy a boat anywhere but here. rick and staff treat you like family and I know I was quite a hassle to deal with and they dealt with me like I was a vip customer”

By: matt burnet, TX

“Rick, Tommy and the entire team were absolutely fantastic. We bought a Hurricane FD198 with a Yamaha 115 Horse Outboard. They made me an excellent deal on the Hurricane plus gave me a good value for my 16′ fishing boat. They did all the extras and were very helpful in showing us how to use the boat. The worked through every glitch that we had including re-wiring my truck to allow for a trailer surge brake. They were very patient with me and all my questions. We came from Houston, Texas to buy the boat and it was well worth our time and mileage to do it. They most certainly went the distance for us. I normally don’t leave comments, either good or bad, but I was so impressed were their service and honesty that doing this was a must. If all businesses conducted their business the way Rick and his gang do, the world would be a much better place. Don’t buy a boat from anywhere else.”

“I have known the LBJ Marine land family for 30 plus years, they have always provided my family with , great service, fair pricing , and great smiles. I just purchased my 3rd boat from Rick and his family, and as always the experiance was GREAT. I keep returning to LBJ because I can count on their wisdom and advice and fairness. Its good to know that a family run company with good values, can compete and grow in todays world. Many thanks Wes Ramsey Decatur, Texas “

“A truly awesome experience is what you can expect from Lake LBJ Marineland. We were so impressed with the sales and service we received from the whole team at Lake LBJ Marineland we purchased a second boat from them. From the sales staff who answered every question, to the service department who checked every inch and the parts department who provided us with every option we could dream of. This is the place I will send my friends and family to purchase their marine dreams. I have dealt with other local marine dealers before, but none even comes close to the wonderful experiences we have with Lake LBJ Marineland. So before you make the final decision to purchase; do yourself a great favor and just stop by and let them show you what a true marine dealership can do for you. Simply Signed A Customer for Life!! “

“Tommy, Wanted to thank you again for selling me the Polar kraft fishing boat last year. I took my grandson out for his first fishing trip last weekend in Angostura Reservoir near Hot Springs SD. and I can tell you my son tells me all my grandson talks about is fishing in Pop Pa’s boat! Thanks for the great deal you gave me. I have enjoyed the boat immensely and look forward to each weekend. “
