Ballard Marine Service has been in business for since 1991 and their focus is on service. Their facility was originally the location of Brekke Blacksmith & Metal Fabrication, established in 1900. Now, new and used outboards are on display in the character filled showroom, and their indoor/outdoor service bays feature the latest in computer diagnostic equipment and test tanks.

Ballard Marine Service has made their focus on the recreational market but their work with the commercial and high use accounts have given them some help understanding what can fail and often anticipating what can fail before it does as these engines have accelerated use in comparison to recreational.
