Midwest-based SkipperBud’s, which was founded in Wisconsin, is adding a new on-water location in Lake County, Ill., in the resort town of Antioch.

SkipperBud’s Sequoit Harbor is on Lake Marie, a glacial lake that is part of the 14-lake Fox Chain O’Lakes just south of the Illinois-Wisconsin state line.

The marina consists of 208 slips, a fuel dock, launch ramps, hoist and travel‐lift wells, a 15,000-square-foot showroom and a 10,000-square-foot service shop.

Future plans include a dry stack building for year-round indoor boat storage, a new showroom and additional storage buildings. Marina amenities include landscaped grounds and dock-front parking.

The marina was acquired from previous owner Terry Upton. SkipperBud’s said it has hired all of Sequoit Harbor’s personnel.
