2008 Yamaha VX Deluxe
The 2008 Yamaha VX Deluxe is for people who like active marine sports riding and prefer a freer riding position. This model has a sports type seat that will be appreciated because it allows greater freedom of sitting position for the rider and passenger. The 2008 VX Deluxe is powered by a compact, ultra lightweight, four cylinder, 1052cc, DOHC, 20 valve, liquid cooled Yamaha MR 1™ four stroke engine. The V hull of the VX Deluxe is designed to be light and strong and to provide excellent maneuverability, handling and comfort. The VX Deluxe offers aggressive styling, exceptional economy, stunning performance and all round ability, but included in its comprehensive specification are extra luxuries like mirrors that help the driver to keep an eye on wakeboarders and skiers in tow, reverse gives this waverunner superior maneuverability making it easier to dock and launch and the Yamaha remote security system with ‘L’ mode. The 19 gallons of total storage, the comfortable one piece seat, the extra large boarding platform and the remote transmitter that helps you easily to set Low RPM Mode for better fuel efficiency, or to disable the ignition when you leave your vehicle unattended makes this waverunner the perfect one for you. With its aggressive styling, exceptional fuel economy, stunning performance and all round ability, the VX is a great way to enjoy your adventures in the wonderful world of watercraft.
2015 Yamaha VX Crusier
The 1995 WaveVenture 700 debuted as the first full-sized 3-seater Yamaha PWC. It was built on a large and stable platform and utilized a 701cc, 2-stroke twin engine. This model was the smallest sibling in the Venture family next to the more powerful WaveVentrue 760 and WaveVenture 1100.
2010 Kawasaki Ultra 260x
This watercraft was designed with one thing in mind: performance. With the exclusive benefits of iControl technology, saying this is an exhilarating musclecraft is an understatement. Your Sea-Doo RXT goes from 0-30 mph in 1.7 seconds, which gets you where you want to go seriously fast. The Sea-Doo RXT model also has, hands down, the best handling with an S3 Hull that is stepped to keep you glued to the water. And with ECO mode, you can have the ultimate in power and performance while still being up to 31% more fuel efficient than the closest competitive models.
2002 Cobalt 246
Configured with two forward-facing captain’s chairs and an L-lounge in the cockpit, the interior of the Cobalt 246 easily has room for six people. There’s a walk-through transom and a walk-through windshield as well, making movement throughout the boat effortless.
2005 Cobalt 282
The Cobalt 282 is as responsive to the captain as it is to her guests. For all its size and spaciousness, the 282 handles with the agility, and nimbleness of a far smaller craft. Even so, sheer volume remains a principle 282 virtue: large storage opportunities include dedicated fender lockers, a gigantic head compartment, a motor box ready to accept twin-power options (choices that will make the 282 something of a rocket), a big swim platform, a double-wide helm seat, and an artful design for an imposing hull that delivers a splendid ride in rough water. Standard equipment includes a sound system, a galley unit with sink, wrap-around seating, and a pump-out Porta-Potti.
2004 Premier 230 Escapade RE
Relax on the lake in both comfort and style. This reliable pontoon boat is perfect for family fun and entertainment. This upscale model has comfortable upholstery and a beautiful captain’s console.

here from Google Business:
I purchased a new boat trailer from Tyler. He did a great job having the trailer prepared and all of the paperwork taken care when I arrived. I would highly recommend Lakeside Marine to anyone who wants to work with a professional company.
Got a Jetski from these guys today ! Tyler was super helpful in the process and even took us out on the lake and gave us a very good learning session and made sure everything was ok. Great group of guys, love working and doing business with people like them!
I called Dane about replacing a motor in my boat (Sea Ray 300) and he gave me a timeline and a price and I even changed the scope of work and asked him to replace the other motor as well and he still kept his timeline. They have a great facility with people who are accountable doing the work. My calls and texts were promptly returned. The guy who built my motors launched my boat and went out on the water to ensure my satisfaction. In a time that many things are uncertain Lakeside delivered and I have enjoyed my boat all summer. I would encourage anyone to give them shot if you are not happy with your current mechanic
Tyler Poteat was very professional and took really good care of me. I traded trailers and got a brand new one from them and he was a man of his words and gave me what he said he would over the phone. I traveled 2 1/2 hours to Lakeside and would do it again. I highly recommend them for trailer sales and anything else you need for boat are jet ski. Honest reliable people there. Jay Aiken under my Sons google acct.
I had one day to get my jet ski winterized (before a weekend freeze). I called Lakeside Marine, and they told me to bring my jet ski now. I pulled my SUV (jet ski trailer still attached) to the front office, and Ian walked out with all the equipment. He winterized my jet ski right in front of me. He explained everything and provided tips for simple jet ski maintainence. I was so impressed with my winterization that I went ahead and had Ian change my oil, oil filter, and spark plugs. Excellent customer service! They are fast, cheaper than other places I called, clean, nice, and very professional. I would highly recommend Lakeside Marina and Motorsports. III
Couldn't have been happier. I had a boat picked up and trailer from Lake Hartwell to Lake Oconee. The couple that came to pick up the boat were great! Very helpful. And the entire process was smooth, easy and exactly what I needed.
We purchased a new boat trailer from James Stuart. Could not have been better taken care of. James spent significant time with us going over every aspect of the trailer, adjustments to be made, and even included a tutorial on how to properly load a boat. He was transparent through the sales process with pricing, highly responsive, and I have full confidence he will be there to answer questions in the future. I give James my highest recommendation.
Chris & Lakeside Team were Awesome! Timely to my needs with great Follow Up & Communication!
This is my 3rd experience with Dane and his crew. They are a top notch boat service & repair shop. Very customer oriented. They are not satisfied until you are satisfied. I always have a great experience at LSM&M. James Stewart, the service guy keeps you up to date while your boat is being repaired or serviced. He is very knowledgeable about what the problem is and works at fixing it at the least cost to you.
I highly recommend this team for your next boat service or repair!
I can't say enough about Gary, Eian and all the staff that support them. It is so rare to have the quality of work that they performed on my Supra these days. True professionals. No corners cut. Amazing end product. They did some mechanical and gelcoat repairs. The gelcoat work that Angel did is top notch. The entire bottom of my boat looks as good as it did when new. I will not use or recommend using any other boat repair shop. Thanks for the great work guys.
