                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: I grew up on Lake Charlevoix. My father taught me to sail as soon as I could swim. I worked on Mackinac Island in the summer while going to college and lived on a sailboat in the harbor. I have sailed all through the Greats Lakes in addition to the Erie Canal, East Coast, Caribbean, and South Pacific. I hold a Coast Guard 50 ton Masters(Captains) license. My son is presently serving with the coast guard in the Persian Gulf aboard a 110' cutter.

                  Why the Owner Chose Charlevoix:
                  The best way to enjoy the Great Lakes and northern Michigan is by boat. Especially a sailboat ,with the only noise being the wind and the waves.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Boat:
                  While everyone is sitting in traffic you are sailing over cool clear water with no one honking at you. On the water not only do we not yell or honk at other boats, we wave and smile. Truly a different world.
