We love the boat and so did the previous owners; we are a family of five and it has gotten small as the kids are getting big.

Being an hour from home though and an hour from Chicago, it has been the best location we could have picked besides the Florida Keys to escape every weekend with our family.

The park the marina is in is right next to the zoo and has concerts all through the summer, we had front row seats to the fireworks at our slip.

It has some of the best steelhead and salmon fishing on Lake Michigan and would make a perfect weekend home or live aboard.
