Grand Pointe Marina will represent Grady-White Boats from the company’s locations on the Grand River in Lansing, Mich., and in Sterling Heights, Detroit.

“We are extremely excited with the opportunity to represent Grady-White in Michigan. Our two stores serve both Mid-Michigan and East Michigan areas of our state, including Detroit, one of the largest boating markets in the U.S.A.,” Grand Pointe general manager Chris Stevens said in a statement.

“We’ll have all Grady models for sale and many Grady models on display, both in Lansing and in our 30,000-square-foot indoor showroom at our Detroit location. We like to say that this showroom facility accommodates a boat show every day.”

“Grady-White is a perfect fit for our dealership,” Stevens added. “We already are heavily involved with the fishing community, and our customers, old and new, will love Grady-White because not only are these excellent fishing boats built with exceptional attention to detail, but they also are safe and sure premium-quality family cruisers or sport boats — just right for the Great Lakes. Like Grady-White, our family-owned business places a high priority on service and making sure our customers are exceedingly happy. Grady-White promotes the same values we live by. This relationship is going to give our dealership a strong edge when it comes to offering the quality boat people are looking for today.”
