Springs, Bay Harbor, and Cheboygan facilities."

The Traverse City location represents Sea Rays from 19‐65' in addition to Walstrom Marine's current lineup of Tiara Yachts, MJM Yachts, Chris Craft, and Pursuit Boats. Various models will be on display in the N. US 31 showroom. Walstrom has also joined the Harbor West Yacht Club, establishing an on
water presence for larger boats and demonstrations.

Walstrom Marine is building a new team with the support of its current staff and operations to help achieve excellence in the Traverse City area. Rick Venner, previously Sales Manager for Walstrom Marine, has accepted the position of General Manager of Traverse City. Rick's extensive background includes selling and servicing boats from trailer boats to larger yachts. The team in Traverse City will also consist of additional full time, year round sales and service staff to support all facets of the new location's product and service offerings.
