SkipperBud’s has acquired Island Cove Marina on Cass Lake at 3981 Cass Elizabeth Road, Waterford, Mich.
The marine facility’s new name will be SkipperBud’s – Cass Lake Marina. The marina is currently full service with 125 floating docks, a fuel dock, brokerage sales, service and repair facilities and a large dry-stack storage building.
SkipperBud’s will immediately add new boat sales to the facility, and plans to transform the marina and grounds over the next 24 months.
Renovations will include adding a new dry-stack boat storage building, service and sales facilities and new docks.
“It’s about the location,” said SkipperBud’s President Mike Pretasky Jr. “It’s easy for boaters to access, being just minutes from M-59 in the heart of Oakland County, on a large, all-sports lake.”
The marina will become a destination location for the Detroit Metro market, Pretasky said.
“We are committed to this market and are not afraid to make a long term investment in Oakland County” he said. “With this great location, and our other three dealerships in the Detroit metro area, we are increasing our ability to service boaters.”
New pontoon, sport boat and deck boat lines will round out the product line-up at this facility.
SkipperBud’s – Cass Lake Marina will become SkipperBud’s sixth Michigan location.
