About Us

Life buoy with 33 years text inside

Originally founded in the 1920s, the Pilot Knob Marina is one of the oldest marinas on lake George, nestled in the heart of the Adirondacks in Pilot Knob, NY. We have been upstate New York’s premier CHAPARRAL boat and ARCTIC CAT power-sports dealer for over 33 years. Our Sales outlet is located on route 149 South of Lake George village, and is open 7 days a week, while our marina can be accessed by land or water in Pilot Knob.

With our long history, you can be assured that we’ll be here to serve you, both today and in the future! Whether you’re shopping for a new boat, snowmobile, atv or side by side, we’re here to help!

In addition to top quality service, the marina offers a gas dock with the best dock attendants on the lake, as well as a “mini” grocery store stocked with the necessities for a weekend outing. During the boating season the marina is open 7 days a week, and 5 days a week during the fall & winter months.

We're Avid Boaters &
Outdoor Enthusiasts

The Pilot Knob Marina is co-owned by long time friends Nick Barber and Mike Smith who purchased it in 1986. Being avid boaters and outdoor enthusiasts, their goal was to provide their customers with the best experience possible. Our alliance with the Chaparral Boat Company along with Arctic Cat has helped us make that goal a reality, and is evident by the number of repeat buyers and customer referrals! Our “rolling” customer satisfaction index rating (CSI) is bordering on 100%, so we must be doing something right!
