Spring Service At Surdyke Yamaha

Spring is only 32 days away. It may seem like the warm weather will never return, but now is a great time to prepare your boat for the upcoming boating season. Spring service is crucial for your boat. Surdyke Yamaha knows that it’s important to inspect your boat and get the proper maintenance done ahead of time before the warm weather is here. You don’t want to miss out on being out on the Lake because you procrastinated getting your spring service done. At the best boat dealer at the Lake of the Ozarks, we have a specially trained crew who can get your boat ready for a summer out on the Lake.


De-Winterize the Engine


The engine is the heart of your boat, and you always want it to be in tip-top shape, and ready to run properly. We can change the oil for you, and get it cleaned up and ready to go. Checking and changing the oil (especially if you didn't have it done in the fall) can help protect against corrosion and excessive wear which can lead to a loss of power, poor fuel economy or engine failure. It's important to not miss this crucial step in maintaining your boat. The cooling system will also need to be flushed and replaced with new coolant. Finally, the battery will need to be checked and possibly replaced, and then we'll perform a thorough engine test. You can count on Surdyke Yamaha to provide the best boat service at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Inspect the Vinyl


After your boat has been winterized for several months, it's a good idea to thoroughly look over the vinyl and make sure there aren't any surprise tears. When it gets cold, mice and other critters love to find a warm place to hunker down for the winter, and unfortunately, your boat could have been their haven. Repair any rips or tears, and then clean everything with the appropriate cleaner.

Check the Hull


Hull inspection is extremely important when you are preparing your boat for summer. Chalk textures, bubbles, chips or cracks are all signs that something bigger could be happening and need to be looked at by a professional. We can help you determine if the hull is ready to set sail or not.

Final Details


We'll check the windshield wipers to make sure that they are in proper working order before you head out. Some marine environments can be very rough on this part of your boat, and it's important to keep them working. We can also help you test and replace any and all electronic equipment that may be malfunctioning.


Spring Service at Surdyke Yamaha


Spring will be here before we know it and now is the time to get your boat in for service. Getting your service done early means you can get out on the water faster when boating season is here. If you’re looking for your dream boat, the best boat dealer at the Lake of the Ozarks can help you. Here at Surdyke Yamaha, “You ride on our reputation” is not only our company slogan but the foundation we hold strong to. Whether on the water, the road or the dirt… if it has wheels or floats we sell it and ride it.

Types Of Boats You Can Find At Surdyke Yamaha

It’s that start of a new year and now is the best time to prepare for the upcoming summer. What better way to beat the winter blues than by preparing for the upcoming boating season? If you’re searching for a new boat for your family, you’ve come to the right place. At Surdyke Yamaha, our goal is to find the best boat that fits your family’s needs. From wake boats to pontoons, we offer a wide variety of different boats for you to choose from. There is something for everyone at best boat dealer at the Lake of the Ozarks. Check out some of the types of boats you can find at Surdyke Yamaha.

Wake Boats


Wake boats make summers at the Lake of the Ozarks even better! These boats are all about having fun and creating adventure. The placement of the engine adds weight to the back of the boat, which creates larger wakes, perfect for wakeboarding, skiing, and tubing. Wakes boats are the ideal boat for families who crave adventure when out on the Lake.


Stern Drive Boats


Stern drive boats are often associated with luxury boats, as they typically come equipped with amenities such as a head, a galley and even a sleeping quarters. With the engine mounted at the stern, it opens up significant space in the boat's interior for more occupancy. These boats are great for a relaxing day at the Lake with your friends and family. 

Jet Boats


Jet boats are propelled by a jet of water out of the back of the craft. They maneuver well, and many can, from full speed, be reversed and brought to a stop within little more than their own length in a maneuver known as a "crash stop". These boats are perfect for those looking for speed! Many jet boats are used in all types of races, however, they are also great for families looking to hit the lake for a day full of fun.


Pontoons


Pontoons are great for those looking to entertain, as they can hold a large number of people. However, they can also pull tubes, skis, and wakeboards, so they are not just for relaxing in one of the many coves at the Lake of the Ozarks. Many pontoons come equipped with extra amenities like movable tables, wet bars, state of the art speakers and even underwater and mood lighting. Pontoons also make for great fishing boats. If you want a boat that can do it all, a pontoon may be for you.
