Great Lakes Sailing Co. has expanded its Marlow Hunter dealer region from the western side of Michigan to now include all of Michigan’s lower peninsula and the eastern half of Michigan’s upper peninsula.
“We are excited to grow and expand with the Marlow Hunter brand,” said Dave Conrad of Great Lakes Sailing Co. “Since becoming a dealer in 2013, we have witnessed first-hand the continued evolution and advancement of Marlow Hunter’s engineering and build process.”
Located at the CenterPointe Marina in Traverse City, Great Lakes Sailing Co. has been offering charters and an ASA sailing school for more than 30 years.
“The natural progression of our business was boat sales,” said Conrad. “For years we have been chartering boats, and teaching people how to sail. We found that often times we would consult with longtime customers as they began the boat buying process. So we decided it only made sense to offer customers the option of working directly with us for their boat purchase. So in 2012 we become a Gemini Catamaran dealer, followed by Marlow Hunter in 2013 and Jeanneau as a charter dealer the same year. This expanded region for Marlow Hunter now allows us to reach the metro Detroit market where we already have a large customer base that sails with us.”
