About Us


Seeing a need on Lake Herrington for a first-class marine sales and service business, Rick Bartley opened Marine Works in 2006. In 2008, Danny McSorley came on board as a partner with Rick and the business expanded to include Bullet boats, Tahoe pontoons, Hustler trailers, and Mercury motors. In 2009 a new showroom was built along with dry-dock storage facilities and the inventory was expanded to include Lowe boats and trailers. Inventory again expanded in 2013 with the addition of Avalon luxury pontoons, Phoenix boats, and Marine Master trailers. We are looking forward to the opening of a second sales and service location on Cave Run Lake in Morehead, Kentucky, in early 2014.

The Bartley family has been a fixture on Lake Herrington since 1973. Rick has owned and operated Pandora Marina for the past 17 years and in 2006 opened Marine Works in order to provide a full spectrum of marine services to boaters on the lake. Rick’s knowledge of the lake, it’s people, and the marine business are an invaluable asset to Marine Works.
