About FWM

FWM is the acronym for Freshwater Marine Sales and Service. Freshwater Marine began as the service arm for Mike Fink’s Marina Watercraft Rentals the lakes longest operating watercraft rental at Lake of the Ozarks.
Once the shop had repaired all of Capt. Mike Fink’s rental fleet of boats and jet skis, neighbors and friends brought boats and pwcs in for service and repair. Seeing how satisfied they were with the work of Service Manager Butch and his team, I decided to open service to the general public.
FWM invested in more equipment and gear, modified the facility, added more property for expansion, and even became a Mercury and Yamaha Marine Dealer & Service Center.

Sunchaser LogoPrior to the pandemic the FWM team determined to add new boat sales to the portfolio.  As luck would have it or maybe bad luck is more accurate, the manufacturers FWM had been looking to for new boats were unable to provide any.  Not to be deterred (you’ve heard of the stubborn Missouri Mule) we persevered and by late 2020 had arranged to bring the newly designed Sunchaser brand of Pontoon boats to Lake of the Ozarks. 

In 2021 we unveiled the newest new boat dealership and service center at Lake of the Ozarks!  Freshwater Marine Sales & Service.  While the name and location are new, we draw from over 75 years of marine experience.

  • Founder & GM Mark Dickey 15 yrs. owner Mike Fink’s Marina
  • Partner & Service Manager Butch Wileman 40+ years marine service experience 
  • Partner & Sales Manager Joe Bartholomew 20+ years sales experience

We are all are longtime lake residents with a passion for boating.  We do it because we have to.  Why do ducks fly south for the winter?  Why do the swallows return to Capistrano, why do Monarch butterflies migrate, why do the salmon…Because they have to and so do we!

When you buy a watercraft or have it serviced at FWM you become part of the FWM family.  A family you can count on and trust.  We are there for our customers and each other before during and after the sale.  We are not a 9 to 5 bunch. There is a reason we answer the phone 24/7/365.  

Capt. Mark DickeyThanks for reading this, on behalf of all the team at Freshwater Marine I invite you to join our family.
