How it all began...

It is our mission at Minnesota Inboard Water Sports to offer quality products backed with superior service, while always striving to provide complete customer satisfaction. We approach business from a completely different perspective, we are not in business to simply complete transactions, we are in business to create relationships.

Minnesota Inboard Water Sports is the place to go for a great selection of new and used inboard boats that will get you on the lake this summer.

Joe Mueller, and his wife, Pam, opened Minnesota Inboard in Excelsior in January 1992.  Since 1992, the company has grown to include sons Matt and Rob, along with thier daughter Sara.  Minnesota Inboard Water Sports has more than tripled their boat sales since opening making them the #1 dealer of  inboard boats in the Country and the #2 Malibu dealership in the world.

In the spring of 2006, the Muellers opened their second dealership in the Brainerd Lakes area. Providing northern lakes residents a great selection of top quality direct drive inboard boats and the outstanding service to support them.

“Malibu is a quality boat that comes with a lifetime warranty. Malibu comes with a Five Year Bow to Stern year warranty which is a testament to the confidence Malibu has in their product. Throughout the state, Malibu and Axis make up over 40% of the market.  Malibu has won more Ski Boat of the Year awards in the past decade than all their competitors combined.

While a boat is the first piece of the puzzle, Minnesota Inboard’s Pro Shop also supplies their customers with the industry’s finest water sports equipment. The Pro Shop is full of a complete selection of water skis, wakeboards, wakesurfs, kneeboards, tubes, vests, tow ropes, gloves, wet suits, and dry suits. Minnesota Inboard understands the importance of a proper fit…this is why we offer a Performance Guarantee, ensuring that the ski or board you purchase is right for you and your family.

Minnesota Inboard’s Service Department, housed in a separate building in New Germany, is an integral part of their business. The Brainerd Lakes location also includes a complete service department that works closely with New Germany. Since 1992, the number of service technicians has grown from one to six. The knowledgeable technical staff specializes in inboard boats, able to handle light fiberglass and mechanical work. Minnesota Inboard’s service departments don’t service jet skis, snowmobiles, out-boards, or runabouts. They specialize in inboards and they do it well and efficiently with quick turn around time. On average, customers get their boats back in one week, even in the midst of the busy summer season. That’s more than a week faster than most service shops can offer.

Minnesota Inboard has been a Malibu top ten dealer in national sales for 22 straight years and have taken home an award for exceptional customer service for the past 18 years.  In 2013, Minnesota Inboard was the first dealership inducted into the Malibu Hall of Fame.  2015 marked another year of big acheivement, when Minnesota Inboard became the first Malibu dealer ever to win the Dealer of the Year and President’s Award in the same year. To add to the dealerships success, Matt Mueller has been awarded the National Salesperson of the Year awards from Malibu in 2014 & 2015.

Since 1992 Minnesota Inboard has been One Family, One Brand and One Mission.
