SkipperBud’s is breaking ground on a marina complex on Cass Lake in Waterford, Mich., this week.

SkipperBud’s president Mike Pretasky Jr., is being joined by members of the Waterford Chamber of Commerce, Roncelli Inc., Bowers+Associates, Nowak & Fraus, state and local officials and SkipperBud’s vendor partners to celebrate construction of the new boat sales and dealership, slated to open in fall.

“This event will mark a special day as we officially break ground on the Cass Lake Marina Dealership and become an official member of this community, “ said Pretasky in a statement. “This property, once completed, will be a wonderful addition to the boating community and the City of Waterford.”

The building design and construction will be managed by Roncelli Inc.

SkipperBud’s Marina complex on Cass Lake will feature a 20,000-square-foot showroom for new and used boat sales and brokerage services.

Boaters will have a destination with full service, maintenance and repair, new floating docks, year-round drystack service and winter storage.

This dealership will be SkipperBud’s fifth location in eastern Michigan.

The family-owned company is continuing to look for additional marina and boat storage facilities to acquire in Eastern Michigan to further service boaters.
