Our fuel dock, located at the east end of the harbor on Lake Potter, offers diesel and non-ethanol fuel along with free pump-outs. Sunset Marina offers restrooms with showers and coin-operated laundry facilities, and a 35-ton Marine Travelift is on-site to support the needs of our valued patrons.

WELCOME TO THE WATER

“A big shout out to the crew, Denise, Joe and, of course, Chad, for doing a tremendous job through one of the most challenging years that I can recall and I’ve been there for the better part of 50 years. Most of us were leery at first, but they proved us wrong!!! Great job!”

RAINMAKER

“Sunset Marina is a beautiful and safe place for family. I love to exercise there! It’s also very clean. I highly recommend trying this place out for family, exercising, picnics, etc.”

SHAWN W

“Great place to launch your boat, excellent crappie fishing. Walleyes hang out on the Outer Perimeter; all around good place to go to for your family with places to have a picnic and barbecue and a good time.”

DONALD G

“Great in the summer for fishing and boating. Amazing in the winter for eagle watching.”

Good afternoon Sunset Boaters! We are excited to share another boater spotlight! Thank you Russ and Jody for accepting your nomination and sharing about your your boat life!

Russ and Jody Stagner, homeport - Altoona, IA
Our first visit to Sunset Marina was October 1987 when we dropped off Russ’s parents as they boarded their tug boat bound for the Florida Keys. After raising our three kids on a couple of different sailboats on a lake nearby then becoming empty nesters, we found ourselves again at Sunset on one of our Sunday Drives. Ultimately, this led to selling the sailboats and shopping for a houseboat.
Our 1984 Chris Craft Aquahome found us in the fall of 2020. It was quite a learning curve switching from sail to twin big block MerCruiser engines. What we didn’t realize would happen with this boating journey though was all the new friends we would make and all the help we would receive from EVERYONE we meet on the docks. We started out on the 300 dock that first fall and then moved to the 500 dock for two seasons. This past season we moved to the 100 dock. Besides the welcome shade for our apartment on the water we also found the 100 dock included great views of the river and more new friends. Everyone we have met at Sunset has been so helpful including the staff at the fuel dock when we show up for fuel and pump outs.
Although there are some downsides ($$) to being boat owners, the positives far outweigh the negatives.
We are excited to be summer residents of Sunset and for the future boating adventures that are ahead of us. We hope that we can be just as much help to new Sunset boaters as those that have helped us.

Hi neighbors! 👋

Great pics Russ and Jodi!

Very cool😎 Good peeps👏

It’s Slip Swap time! Slip Swap is running until January 26th: anyone who had a slip last year and wishes to retain that slip, or if you wish to try to move to a different slip, must have a contract and payment arrangement in place by the 26th. Please note that in order to start a payment arrangement for the coming season, your account must be current or on an existing payment arrangement and paid to date. We cannot guarantee that your slip will be available after the 26th if we don’t hear from you. Afterwards, all open slips will be listed on our website @https://sunsetmarinari.com/slip-rental/.

This year is a little particular in that we will be removing the 600 and 700 docks in the spring, so if you had a slip on those docks, we will do our best to find space for you on one of our other docks- but space is limited, so make sure you get in contact with us ASAP if you wish to secure a space! In order to process your slip request for the season, we will need:

1) A fully filled out and signed contract, indicating the services and slip you need for the season.
2) A current copy of the liability insurance on your watercraft - VERY IMPORTANT - coverage amounts are dependent on the dock set you will be on. We have had a few people tell us that we should have it on file, only to find it expired since last season. We must have a current copy on file, or we cannot let your boat stay in the slip.
3) A current payment arrangement and/or payment.

Again, we are offering a 50% discount on full season slip fees this year, essentially making your full season slip rental the same price as a half season! Don’t miss out on this, get in contact with us today!

Office: 309-732-2282
Hours: Monday – Friday, 8a - 4p
Email: Kdavis@f3marina.com or Bwelin@f3marina.com
