We use J/22 and J/30 keelboats for their quality, design, and ease of handling. J/22s offer large, open cockpits and room for up to five adults. The J/30 is our entry level keelboat offering more space than the J/22s. Designed in the 1980s, the J/30 is a proven racer-cruiser that handles well in all conditions. Our T-10 is one of Lake Michigan’s most popular racing vessels. It’s open, flat deck provides plenty of space for all of your passengers.
The Hunter-326s are cruising oriented with all imaginable conveniences for the discerning sailor. These boats offer additional creature comforts with ample seating, dry storage down below and a head onboard.
Imp & Bangarang, our two Beneteau yachts offer cruising comfort with speed and agility. At 36’, each yacht offers ample space and a lush interior for food and beverage staging as well as a comfortable refuge on hot days. The Oceanis 352 also offers a furling main for ease and comfort.
Our Catalina-400 is a cruising sailor’s dream boat with a huge cockpit, double wheels, and furling sails. The cockpit is large with lots of room to entertain friends. The interior boasts an enormous aft cabin with it’s own head and a spacious salon with forward head.
All of these vessels are available to skippers with appropriate sailing experience.
