The Great Lakes Sailing Co. has been offering easy, affordable yacht ownership in Michigan for over 30 years. We offer full service and excellent owner support long after the sale on Gemini Catamarans and Jeanneau sailboats. We’re also a certified ASA training center with customized sailing instruction, yacht deliveries, docking and harbor handling training and more. Our staff of over 13 friendly, professional, USCG licensed Captains have traveled throughout the Great Lakes to assist our boat owners.
Sales & Service
When you talk with us about a new yacht, you’re talking with experienced sailors and USCG licensed Captains who sail the yachts we sell. You’ll get the straight talk from years of experience in not just sales but in marine electrical systems, diesels, electronics, rigging, outfitting and more. We’ll help you find the right boat with the right options that will fit your budget.
