Misty Harbor Boats is booming
Sunday, June 10, 2018
“There are big things going on,” said John Jergens, president of Fort Dodge-based Misty Harbor Boats, headquartered at 228 Kenyon Road West.
The company he co-owns with Tom Christy, vice president, and George Thomas, an Elkhart, Indiana, entrepreneur, is expanding fast and poised to continue doing so in 2018 and beyond.
“It has been steady growth since 2009,” Jergens said. “The recession was hard on everybody. As an industry, it’s been steady growth since then.”
Misty Harbor builds pontoon boats. It was founded in Humboldt in 1989 and was owned for many years by Dave and Lisa Wilson. The company relocated to Fort Dodge in 1993. Christy, Jergens and Thomas formed The Marine Group LLC and purchased the thriving enterprise in January 2017.
Misty Harbor manufactures an eclectic array of pontoon boats.
