Excelsior, MN. The 2019 boating season finds Bayside Marine of Excelsior Bay on Lake Minnetonka under new ownership. Bayside’s founder Bob Holz has decided to retire after more than 20 years, and has sold the marine service center to Andrew Spilseth and Cody Turnquist. The new owners also own ‘Tidy Boats’, a boat detailing and cleaning service provider already well known on the lake. Both businesses will operate at the Bayside location on Excelsior Bay, although much of the Tidy Boats business is done onsite at customer’s location.

Bayside Marine provides full service, parts, and boat storage. They are a Merc certified outboard dealer and service provider. Spilseth told us, “Bob did an amazing job keeping people on the water and we want to continue to provide the same high level of service that Bayside customers have come to know.”
