Spring Brook Marina opened a new location in Fish Creek, Wis.

It will include a Main Street storefront in Fish Creek and an in-water slip for inventory to show and sea-trial.

The company said the new location complements its Chicago, Cleveland and Traverse City, Mich., locations. Spring Brook represents Prestige Yachts for the Great Lakes region and Jeanneau Yachts for western and southern Lake Michigan.

“We are equally excited to announce that this location will be operated by Capt. Russ Haack,” the company said. “Russ and his wife, Liz, are seasoned boaters and will make for great ambassadors of Spring Brook Marina and our core principles and values. Having boated in Door County for decades, they have an understanding of what Great Lakes boaters need and how to help place clients into the correct boat, not just the boat that’s available. Their knowledge of the Jeanneau and Prestige Yachts lineup are second to none.”
