Last Chance Performance Marine was formed several years ago by the owners of National Bass West; Mike and Lynne Peterson with the owners of Last Chance Tackle; Dan and Megan Merchant. Their brainchild was a boat dealership that would be able to serve both large metros of Los Angeles and San Diego, where they’d build upon their foundation of “taking care of each and every customer as if they were our only customer.”

They offer a wide variety of boat packages, including bass boats, pontoon boats, bay/inshore boats, fish-n-skis, jon boats and more from Phoenix, Lund and Lowe. They’re also an authorized sales and service center for both leading power sources; Mercury (including Mercruiser) and Yamaha.

Their award winning service department is staffed by certified marine technicians who are experts in the service of outboards, sterndrives, and inboards from all major manufacturers, no matter where purchased. They are also skilled and trained in fiberglass and aluminum hull repairs, boat upholstery (seats, covers, and carpet), trailer service and repair, trolling motor repair, boat detailing and more.

So whether you’re in the market for a new bass boat, recreational boat for the family, need to get your existing boat repaired and back on the water, or just want to get your boat cleaned up – you owe it to yourself to check out Last Chance Performance Marine and find out why they’ve amassed such a loyal following of local fishermen over the years.
