Illinois Performance Boats

Sales and Service for Fountain, Donzi and Savannah Boats Locations in Chicago and Fox Lake

Illinois Performance Boats is a new boat dealership created in 2021 and owned by Grant Crowley(Crowley's Yacht Yard Lakeside, LLC) and Jeff Pierce(Windy City Yacht Brokerage, LLC). Based at Crowley's Yacht Yard, Illinois Performance Boats is a full service dealership with Sales, Service and Storage. With 8 mechanics (two certified Mercury mechanics), we have the capability to service what we sell.

Initially, we became the Illinois dealer for Fountain and Donzi boats, both owned by Iconic Marine based in Washington, NC. Upon inception we ordered new boats so we would have inventory for the summer of 2022. In January, 2022 we added the Savannah Boats line of skiffs.

FOUNTAINS are mostly Center Consoles ranging from 32' to 43'. Inspired by world renowned Reggie Fountain, these are fast. The 38SC with 4 outboard Merc 450R racing engines has demonstrated 103mph—the fastest center console known. They are popular for fishing and family entertainment.

DONZIS are a classic speedboat that have been made for 57 years. The 22' Classic is made at the same plant as the Fountains. They have 5 engine options from 300hp to 535hp. Top speed can be over 80mph. They have been upgraded in numerous ways over the last few years without changing the classic lines.

Savannah Boats is our latest lineup of 4 models. They are 18' to 22' skiffs and modified skiff center consoles. Drawing only 9” and 13”, they are great for shallow water fishing or for pleasure use coming right up onto the beach. The boat, 115hp Mercury outboard and trailer start at $45,000.
