Dennis Reese, owner and President of Iguana Watersports, Inc.
The business is managed by a staff of highly experienced and motivated individuals. Marketing, Sales, Information Technology, retail management, property management, accounting, HVAC, marine mechanics and marine body shop are just a few of the talents offered by the staff of Iguana Watersports.
The Reese family started coming to the Lake of the Ozarks many years ago and loved it so much they purchased a lake house for their frequent visits. As the years passed they grew increasingly fond of the area and have made it a home away from home.
Seeing the area grow and prosper has always been of great importance to the family. Strong believers in customer service and a quality product, they recognized the need for a boat rental business that would offer not only the newest and best quality rental fleet but also the ultimate in customer satisfaction and service.
Thus, Iguana Watersports was born. In May 2009 Iguana Watersports opened its doors for business and the rest is history. Iguana Watersports started with three locations with 30 watercraft. By 2013, five years later, Iguana has grown to nearly 80 watercraft and pwc’s ranging from tournament fishing boats to 50 foot luxury cruisers!
After much hard work and determination, Iguana Watersports has become “THE” boat rental company at the Lake of the Ozarks. Iguana Watersports has been voted by the Lake of the Ozarks voting public “Best Boat Rentals at The Lake” for the last 3 consecutive years.
Throughout the last four years Iguana Watersports has acquired several strategic properties in the area. These properties has increased their ability to enhance products and services to our customers.
In 2009 Iguana Watersports added a beautiful 4 bedroom Luxury cabin to their rental offerings. The cabin accommodates 10 guests and is located adjacent to their boat rental location on the Bagnell Dam Strip.
Next Iguana Watersports acquired 2 crucial adjoining properties in Lake Ozark. One property has Bagnell Dam Blvd. highway frontage which now houses their Iguana retail store, boat sales and corporate offices. The adjoining property has Lake Frontage that connects their other existing properties allowing for addition dock space within their cove. This property has provided the needed space to become an appointed franchise dealership for Cruisers Yachts. Iguana Boat Sales is now the exclusive Cruisers Yacht dealer for this very luxury line of boats in the state of Missouri. Iguana Boat Sales also is now the exclusive dealer for Cruisers Yachts, Cruisers Sports Series boats, Godfrey Pontoons including SanPan, Aquapatio and Sweetwater, as well as Hurricane Boats.
In 2010 Iguana Watersports purchased twenty seven acres on the Northshore of the Lake, 5 ½ mile marker in Lick Branch Cove. This property has 300 feet of beautiful waterfront and a three story 5000 square foot building that houses 3 rental condo units and a convenience store/restaurant with two Tiki bars. Additionally, Iguana has a new 18 slip rental/gas dock, 10 well transient dock on the waterfront, and new concrete boat ramp. A wave runner repair shop, wave runner warehouse, and welding/fabrication shop is conveniently located there as well. This 27 acre property provides plenty of acreage for future growth.
The next venture was Iguana Barge and Rip Rap and Iguana Dock Brokers. Iguana noticed a need and started filling requests from customers. Iguana offers pre-owned docks or will Custom build to suit. Iguana has their own welding and fabrication shop and professional dock builders on staff with years of experience. Iguana Barge and Rip Rap specializes in lakeshore stabilization, seawalls and rip rap, excavation as well as transporting of heavy equipment.
This year Iguana has opened Iguana Fireworks a year round store on the strip in the historic White House and they expanded their Iguana Retail Shop to include Apparel, Tubes, Skis, Lilly pads, paddle boards, wake boards, and accessories. Iguana Shop has everything you need for a fun day on the lake!
Iguana Watersports has transformed in 2013 into the “Iguana Lake Group” offering quality products, excellent customer service and helping to bring the Bagnell Dam Strip back to life and take Lake of the Ozarks to the next level.
