Why Buy from Grass Shack at Lake Lanier?

Grass Shack delivers value. In our prices, ethics, our products and our service! Grass Shack became number 3 in the country with Suzuki motors because of the effort we put into educating our customers. This education helps our customers make comfortable and confident decisions when looking at the possible purchase of a boat.

In our first year carrying the Avalon line of boats, we became the #1 dealer in Georgia and a Gold dealer! We have been a national Gold dealer since. We also were honored with the #1 dealer in Georgia for the 2014 and 2016 model years. This recognition illustrates our commitment to great pricing and customer service.

Our prices – buy direct!

When you buy a boat from Grass Shack you will deal with the owners personally Mike Prince, Michael Prince and David Prince. Although we have other staff that may assist you with your questions we have no ‘commissioned’ sales people. No one is trying to rush the process for payday, we are a low pressure environment. More importantly, you can buy knowing that your salesman today will be here tomorrow. And although we offer an attractive environment, the price of your boat does not include an overpriced facility or any exorbitant marina fees. Very simply, we can offer you a lot more bang for your buck because our overhead is so much less.

Our ethics.

We deliver a level of customized service unheard of in our industry. This is a huge decision for you. The first time you visit you’ll just want to check out our products and our place. We’ll do all we can to help you understand your options – from simplifying the motor choices to the pros and cons of various layouts.
