BOISE, Idaho (Legal Newsline) — Christopher Bohnenkamp, owner of the now-defunct Bohnenkamp’s Whitewater Customs Inc. and Treasure Valley Marine Inc., has agreed to settle allegations of failing to deliver custom-built boats and trailers to clients as promised, said Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden.

Consumers began complaining in 2015 that the defendant’s companies were not delivering finished products and rejected refund requests after consumers had paid thousands of dollars for custom-built jet boats or trailers.

As per the settlement agreement, Bohnenkamp is barred from ever operating a boat-related business again in Idaho.

“Idaho consumers now know that Mr. Bohnenkamp will not have a chance to repeat his bad business practices in Idaho again,” Wasden said.


Bohnenkamp was also given a $414,868 judgment that included $372,368 in consumer restitution to eight consumers, $40,000 in civil penalties and $2,500 in attorney fees and costs. The payment, however, has been suspended due to Bohnenkamp’s financial situation. This does not mean that he never has to pay. The settlement mandates that he must pay restitution once has if financially able to do so, the state says.
