Spring Brook Marina Sold to Longtime Employee


Seneca, Illinois-based Spring Brook Marina has been in the Thorpe family since 1961, specializing in power boats sales. In September, owner Jim Thorpe sold Spring Brook to longtime employee Kyle Stenzel.

“After 56 years behind the helm of Spring Brook, Jim Thorpe and his family have decided to pass on that long-standing heritage of great customer service and success, and I couldn’t be more honored to take on the role,” Stenzel says. “I’m excited to continue the amazing heritage and customer oriented principles that have built Spring Brook. In my 15-year tenure here, I’ve learned so much about the marine business from a true icon in the industry and plan to continue to follow those core values that Jim has preached throughout his career.”

Over the next 48 months, Stenzel says the dealer will undergo a facelift, including an updated logo, and will continue to offer premium yachts from Prestige, Jeanneau and Fairline.
