Premier Marine




Daughter of founder Bob Menne, Lori Melbostad is giving the firm’s pontoon business a hip makeover. Under her guidance, Wyoming-based, family-owned Premier Marine continues to introduce innovations, including self-retracting ladders, triple engines and luxury walk-on upper decks. But what good are lake views if the lakes are infested with zebra mussels? To prevent the spread of this invasive, Melbostad’s team not only offers a unique design that prevents the bivalves from hiding on pontoons, it’s sharing the design with its competition.
