Family Owned

Goodhue Boat Company at Sargents Marina is a family owned and operated business, nestled along the shoreline of the northern tip of Lake Sunapee in the small town of Georges Mills.

The year was 1948 – John A. “Babe” Sargent founded the marina on Lake Sunapee with his wife, Priscilla Sargent. Running the marina was a family affair for the Sargents – Babe’s children were a part of the daily operations every summer, including Babe and Priscilla’s daughter, Dorieann. Dorieann grew up around the marina with her parents and took over operations when they were ready to retire. Dorieann and the Sargent family worked hard for decades to make the marina a place where families from near and far could come and enjoy the beautiful Lake Sunapee region.

In October of 2019, Sargents Marina was acquired by Brent and Cameron Pratt who own Goodhue Boat Company. The Pratt’s have been in the marina business for decades, owning two of the largest and most successful marinas on Lake Winnipesaukee. Goodhue Boat Company of Wolfeboro, New Hampshire and Goodhue Boat Company at Shep Brown’s in Meredith, New Hampshire, are full-service marinas offering rentals, boat sales, repairs, storage, and so much more. The Pratt’s are excited to carry on the history and reputation for excellent experiences left behind by Dorieann and the Sargent Family.

We look forward to meeting you this summer!

About Lake Sunapee

Lake Sunapee Pontoon, Boat and Kayak Rentals

Lake Sunapee is a beautiful clean and clear body of water located in the west-central part of New Hampshire. The lake is 8.1 miles long and approximately 2 miles wide at its widest point. Lake Sunapee boasts three of the five working lighthouses in NH. Rent a boat and go discover Lakeside Light, Loon Island Light and Burkehaven Light.

This area became a popular tourist destination after the railroad was completed in 1871 from Concord to Claremont. Summer visitors arrived by train from Boston and New York and traveled around the lake by steamboats to the various hotels and boarding houses. Today the many hotels and boarding houses have been replaced with wonderful private summer homes and cottages where families still come to enjoy these crystal clear waters and wonderful sunsets.
