Gordy’s Marine-Parts and Service Department at Cobalt Farms, The Boat House Restroom, The Lakefront Pro Shop


Fontana, WI


Gordy’s Marine is a wonderful commercial client located on the West End of Geneva Lake in Fontana, Wisconsin.  “Lake Geneva” as it is commonly referred to is a beautiful destination in Southern Wisconsin and a fun vacation playground year round.  Gordy’s Marine is a family run business that sells and maintains both Cobalt and Master Craft boats and provides all of the services that coincide with that from parts/maintenance to sales to storage.  Ann Oakes Design has had the good fortune to become one of Gordy’s preferred vendors so whenever an update is on the table that requires design consultation/services we collaborate with the team at Gordy’s.  To date we have updated/remodeled the Parts/Service Department located at Cobalt Farms, renovated the Ladies’ Room in the lakeside Boat House Restaurant, renovated the Lakefront Pro Shop as well as provided consultation/design services for last summer’s update which converted the lakefront Bait Shop into the new Surf Shack.


Overall, the aesthetic goal of any of Gordy’s spaces is to be both consistent with and promote their lifestyle brand.  As you will see from the portfolio photographs, the atmosphere is warm and inviting yet has a rustic but sophisticated Wisconsin vibe.  We’ve use Karndean flooring in the Parts Department as well as the Boat House Ladies’ Room and Shaw flooring in the ProShop all installed by Exceed Floor and Home, Crystal Lake, Illinois.  Lighting in the Pro Shop is by The Barn Light Electric, Titusville, Florida.  All other design elements provided by Ann Oakes Design, Palatine, Illinois.
