Staying at the only resort on the shores of Lake Geneva has its advantages. Bring your boat or rent one of the Cobalt Blue Bowriders from Gordy’s onsite rentals and experience Lake Geneva on the water.

Are you ready to get on the water?

Guests of The Abbey Resort are welcome to take advantage of our Lake Geneva, Wisconsin marina on Abbey Harbor. Bring your boat and launch from our ramp in the protected marina. Just stop by the Front Desk when you arrive for trailer tag & parking information.

Park & Launch Service $50 per day


Lake Geneva Boat Rentals

You haven’t vacationed on the lake until you’ve ventured out on its glassy blue surface. In Lake Geneva especially, hopping aboard a powerful boat and cruising around the lake is something of a rite of passage. Though lake regulars often come with boats in tow, Lake Geneva has all the services you’ll need if you’d rather rent one once you’re here.

With locations around the lake–including an office at The Abbey–Gordy’s Marine offers powerboat rentals in a variety of sizes, as well as rental boat courses to get you up to speed on proper operation. That’s one less barrier between you and a half or full-day making waves out on the lake. Lake Geneva doesn’t get much better than Gordy’s. Discover which boat rental is right for you.

Renting a Boat at The Abbey

Like The Abbey itself, Gordy's Marine has a long history of fulfilling guests' dreams of boating out on the lake. Gordon Whowell opened the rental company with his family in 1955. 64 years and countless boats later, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a boat rental service that knows more about powerboats and Lake Geneva alike. 

In their mission to set guests up with only the best boats and gear, Gordy’s exclusively offers Cobalt boats. With a rental location on our marina, Gordy's is your most convenient boat rental location on the lake. To find the rental that’s right for you, stop by their podium on The Abbey's waterfront, or call 262-275-2163.

Available Boats

  • 22’ Cobalt Bowrider - Seats 8

Other Rental Gear

There’s more than one way to get out on the lake. Gordy’s offers stand-up paddleboard rentals in addition to boat rentals to ensure that everyone has access to the lake. If you’re looking for a peaceful day on the lake plus a bit of an arm workout, stand-up paddleboarding is for you. Gordy’s stand-up paddleboard rentals include board & paddle and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
