Owners Rick and Shaunie
Rick and Shaunie Prince are two people who simply love the water and northern Michigan and everything it has to offer! Rick’s been boating since he was a toddler with his brothers and parents out of St. Joseph Mi. He vacationed in Northern Michigan his entire life until moving here permanently in 1995. Shaunie is a freakishly sweet sailing enthusiast, who will quickly become your hostess with the most-est! You'll see her biking around the marina and downtown fetching that day's provisions.
First Mate Jeff
Jeff is a local through and through! He was born in Traverse City and raised in Empire - a sleepy little beach town 25 miles west of Traverse City on Lake Michigan. He grew up on the water. Boating and fishing are Jeff's passion. He is married and has 3 grown children and 8 grand children. Be ready for some tall fish tales... well... maybe they're true? You'll have to judge for yourself!
