Mississippi River Boat Works Alweld Aluminum Boat Dealer


For the many years we’ve been in business, we have been striving to provide our clients the best quality service possible to gain their full satisfaction. And they’ve shown their appreciation by coming back to us repeatedly.


We want to be the marine maintenance and repair facility for all your boating needs.


Mississippi River Boat Works Inc. started in 1980 as a full service mobile marine repair service.

1985 brought us to our first permanent location with a shop at the Sunset Marina in Rock Island, Illinois. 

The flood of 1993 (July-August) was very hard to cope with. Our shop had about 37 inches of water in it.

All river activity was shut down for about two months. 

In 1995 we bought our current location at 101 - 6th Avenue, Rock Island, Illinois.

In the fall of 2014, we decided to take on a line of hunting and fishing boats. After much research we began dealers for Alweld Aluminum Boats, Backwater Mud Motors, and Mid-American Trailers to complete the package.

For most people, marine maintenance and repair is not fun or convenient. So, we want make the process as easy and enjoyable as possible for you. We genuinely care about your boat and your experience, and it shows. Our first-time customers continually become our long term customers time and time again, choosing us for all their marine needs
