Mark Manke


Mark’s interest in the marine industry began when he worked for his grandfather at his marina washing boats. From there he noticed a demand for dock and boat lift services in South Central Wisconsin. He built a business from a two-man operation to multiple barges and a knowledgeable crew. Mark has been innovating the industry for over 40 years, gaining knowledge, and improving the standards of service. In 2015 Mark saw the same demand in Northern Wisconsin that he had seen before, for quality marine services. Since then, he has built a growing operation that now spans from the Northwoods to South Central Wisconsin. He provides an unmatched service and a promise of continued quality through both “Eagle River Dock & Lift, LLC” and “Capital Dock & Lift, LLC”.
