Local business owners joined Tetzlaff Yacht Sales owner John Tetzlaff at a May 10 Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting ceremony welcoming the new business to the area.
Tetzlaff Yacht Sales sells a variety of boats, houseboats, trawlers, motor yachts, open bows and more. Owner John Tetzlaff developed his interest in water in his early teens when he would canoe down the St. Croix River with friends. At the time he found it hard to believe that anyone would be interested in buying a boat that had all the comforts of home including air conditioning, a real bed, a generator and engine.
His love for boating evolved and expanded leading him to enter the boat sales business in 2003. Last November. he started his own business, and in December, Tetzlaff Yacht Sales opened their first office location.
Tetzlaff’s motto is "If it floats, I will sell it." He works with brokers worldwide to meet his customer’s needs. He has sold boats in many countries including Canada, Europe, Russia, Australia and New Zealand.
