Lake Michigan really does have some amazing marinas that boaters can choose from when deciding a home port or a weekend boating getaway, but one marina that really does stand above the rest is Reefpoint Marina in Racine, Wisconsin. This 921-slip marina on the western shores of Lake Michigan is conveniently located between Milwaukee and Chicago and can accommodate vessels up to 150’ in length. Boaters travel from far and wide to dock their vessels on these well-maintained floating docks, located within a well-protected break wall, to receive first class treatment from this marina which has always been referred to as the “Gem on Lake Michigan.” When comparing amenities and convenience, there really is no match.
Reefpoint Marina features five-star, resort-like amenities including renovated shower facilities, “Anchors Away”, the abundantly stocked ship store, an outdoor heated swimming pool, hot tubs and fire pits, and an amazing onsite restaurant which features live entertainment every weekend! Priding itself on offering unparalleled boater services, customers can enjoy ease of docking with the assistance of highly-trained staff, a full event calendar for the boating season, weekly communication on marina updates and local events, and even boat-side delivery service.
Also, located just steps away from the marina is historic downtown Racine. Offering many things including a top-rated beach that allows boaters to enjoy sand between their toes, an amazing protected cove that boaters can drop anchor and enjoy an afternoon swimming and basking in the sun, several yacht clubs that offer camaraderie at its finest, and local marine service outlets that provide storage as well. One can’t forget to mention the endless entertainment, shopping, dining, and festivals that go on all summer. Racine really is quite unique as there is always something fun and exciting going on for the entire family to enjoy!
Speaking of events, the Antique and Classic Boat Society (ACBS) 42nd Annual Meeting and International Boat Show is coming to Reefpoint Marina September 6th – 9th! Hosted by the ACBS Glacier Lakes Chapter, as many as 250 beautifully restored vintage and classic watercrafts will be judged and awarded accordingly within their respective categories. This truly is an event that should not be missed!
Besides the ACBS International Boat Show, there are plenty of other festivities worth checking out on the docks of Reefpoint Marina this season! The marina’s 5th Annual Venetian Night is scheduled for August 5th and courtesy guest dockage is being offered for those that show some spirit by participating in this fun event! Boaters will compete for the grand prize of a seasonal slip by dressing their vessel in the rocked-out theme for this year, “Battle of the Bands”!
