Marina in Grand Traverse Bay??
 
We are looking for recommendations full service marina (hall out, winter storage, engine service etc) in Traverse City Michigan, somewhere in the southern part of the bay(s). Our boat is a Catalina 309 and though we have sailed the bays we donít have any significant insight into the marinas. We understand there is also a Yacht Club that is located near the city and we wonder if that is a worthwhile option. Is there anyone with a little local knowledge who is willing to help a Traverse nubie?

thanks
Frank and Kelly

We used the Northport Bay Boat Yard when we were there 1998-2002. We used one of their moorings in the summer and heated storage in winter. Although they were in the north 1/2 of the bay, not the south 1/2 as you prefer, the whole bay is only 25 miles or so. Good luck!

(We miss Lake Michigan, but only in the summer!)
