The adventure began in November 1997 in a 13,000 square foot building on the east side of Bismarck. With eleven employees, Dave, Tim and Eric Moritz kicked off their family run business marketing fun and entertainment to the residents of Bismarck and Mandan. The dealership served the community with Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) the manufacturer of Can-Am, Sea-Doo, Ski-Doo, and Spyder; Godfrey pontoons and Alumacraft boats. Soon after they opened the doors, Moritz Sport & Marine became the first Ranger dealer in North Dakota starting in 1998.
Anyone that knows the Moritz family, knows they don’t sit still long and are onto their next adventure. Ricker’s Marina was the first marina in North Dakota and in 2000 it became the first marina Moritz Sport & Marine purchased unleashing a new sector of fun for its customers. The purchase of Marina Bay followed in 2001. With this large amount of growth it was evident the 13,000 square foot dealership wasn’t going to cut it anymore.
Within six years, Moritz Sport & Marine relocated to where it resides now, nestled next to Ricker’s Marina providing direct access to the Missouri River. It’s the only dealership in Bismarck Mandan with on the water access allowing customer service to those enjoying the day relaxing on the Missouri River. Most companies dream of constructing a new building within its long term goals but it’s rarely achieved in the short term. And the growth didn’t stop there, in 2008 the dealership purchased the South Port Marina and now in total can service 700 slips annually.
The new location tripled in size allowing the dealership to add several other lines of product such as Hurricane deck boats, Premier pontoons, Crownline and Scarab jet boats while still carrying the brands that got them started 20 years ago. Because of the expansion, the dealership can now cater to all types of water recreation such as sport fishing, pleasure fishing, tournament fishing and recreational fun and cruising. This kind of growth meant employing more citizens from the Bismarck and Mandan communities. Now employing 40 people, Moritz Sport & Marine services the community’s reactional activities on the dirt, snow and water creating a playground that is fun for all seasons. The release of the new Can-Am Defender utility vehicle, the dealership has become a prominent fixture in the field helping to do the heavy lifting in a hard days work.
The dealerships outstanding sales and service has been recognized numerous times. They have earned top five honors and dealer of the year awards in all product lines. For the last five years, Moritz Sport & Marine has been a Top 5 Ranger Dealer and three years ago earned the title of number one Ranger dealer in the world.
Moritz Sport & Marine not only goes above and beyond for their customers, they do the same for the community always giving back. Major sponsors for Knight of the Stars, Brave the Shave, Big Muddy Walleye Tournament and the Cancer Center are just a few examples of how they give back to the community. They not only sponsor the Big Muddy, the owners are the originators of the tournament.
The longest run family owned dealership in the community will celebrate it’s 20 year anniversary in November. They are humbled by the community’s support and appreciative of the team that helps make them successful celebrating #fun4allseasons.
