Home / About Us

Enjoy your boating summer better knowing you have a high-quality dock and boat lift that was installed correctly by JD Hellenbrand. 

We’re a locally owned and operated family business that prides itself on being Lake Wisconsin’s  and Madison’s best dock, boat lift, and track system experts. Simply put, we know docks and we know the  lakes!

We have very low employee turnover, which means our team of experts knows the Madison area lakes better than anyone. We’ve seen it all (just ask) and know how to handle any situation when it comes to docks and lifts. 

The owner, Dan, makes time for all of his customers if they need to speak with him. He wants to make sure you have a dock that you’ll be able to enjoy for many years. His dedication to getting the job done right the first time is why JD Hellenbrand has become one of the best dock and lift installers in the area.


About Our Owner

When he was young, Dan grew up working alongside his dad on docks and lifts, making him very familiar with the Wisconsin lakes. After taking a 5 year hiatus to serve in the Marine Corps, Dan returned and bought the family business from his Dad as well as purchasing Blue Crane Boatworks out of Madison, which now make up JD Hellenbrand LLC.  Dan is passionate about providing the highest quality service on time, with impeccable attention to detail. He expects the same level of integrity and hard work ethic in all of his employees.

Thanks for trusting us with your business. Now get out and enjoy those lakes!
