Irish Boat Shop will open a new location on East Bay in Traverse City, just in time for the 2018 boating season. The new waterfront location is nestled at the base of the East Bay on U.S. 31 North, in what was formerly the Traverse City Waterfront Conference Center.
Extensive renovations to the existing center are underway enhancing the generous interior spaces, and outdoors with an updated exterior maximizing its beautiful views of the bay. This marine location is ideal for boaters and shoppers alike; given its ease of access between the bay and U.S. 31.
The main focus of this location will be new and used boat sales, along with boat brokerage services, and retail/ship’s store. Marine service will also be represented in this location.
The new location not only offers a beautiful view of East Bay from the building but also from a large full width deck on the water. “Irish Boat Shop has always wanted to become a part of the Traverse City business community and we think this new location will be a great spot to showcase our exceptional product lines like Boston Whaler, Nautique towboats, and an up-and-coming stern drive line, Bryant Boats,” said Irish Boat Shop President Michael Esposito.
Irish Boat Shop is celebrating 57 years of ‘helping people have fun with boats’ and is a family owned business deeply rooted in the communities of Northern Michigan with full service boatyards that offer sailboat and powerboat maintenance and restoration, expert woodworking craftsmanship, metal fabrication, state of the art paint and varnish work, cutting edge tech service, and repair, dockage, and storage.
Congrats to Michael and the crew - I wish you well in this great addition to your business .
