SkipperBud’s is opening a new location at MacRay Harbor on Lake St. Clair, the company’s fourth in eastern Michigan.

The dealership has new boats from 16 to 100 feet, and the models include bowriders, deckboats, cruisers, yachts, pontoons, jetboats, center consoles and surf/ski boats.

The facility also will offer used-boat sales and professional brokerage services.

Doug Glendening, of Glendening Yacht Sales, and Rob McCarthy, formerly of Lakeside Marine, have joined forces with SkipperBud’s at the MacRay location.

“We are excited to have both Doug and Rob on board,” SkipperBud president Mike Pretasky Jr. said in a statement. “Their knowledge of our products and experience in the market is second to none.”
