Published: Tuesday, May 17, 2016

SkipperBud’s rooted in the Midwest and founded in Wisconsin is adding a new on‐water location in Lake
County, Illinois in the resort town of Antioch. SkipperBud’s – Sequoit Harbor is on beautiful Lake Marie              
(a glacial lake which is part of the 14 lake, Fox Chain O’ Lakes) just south of the IL/WI state line on IL route 173.
Sequoit Harbor, an Antioch landmark established in 1958, sits on nearly 30 acres bound by IL Route 173 to the
North and Sequoit Creek to the South.  The marina consists of 208 slips, a fuel dock, launch ramps, hoist and
travel‐lift wells, 15,000 square foot showroom and a 10,000 square foot service shop.  Sequoit Harbor also
offers full and self‐service in‐out for the summer season.  Future plans include a dry‐stack building for       
year‐round indoor boat storage, a new showroom and additional storage buildings.  Marina amenities include
meticulously landscaped grounds and dock‐front parking.   

SkipperBud’s – Sequoit Harbor is Northern Lake County’s on‐water “Boating Supercenter” offering service and
sales for new, used and brokerage boats including pontoon and deck‐boats, fishing boats, tow boats, center
consoles, bow‐riders, cruisers and jet boats.  

The marina was acquired from previous owner Terry Upton.  SkipperBud’s has hired all Sequoit Harbor
personnel. The knowledge of the long term employees and help from Terry Upton has made the transition

Slips are available for summer 2016!  Please call the marina at (847) 395‐6101 to inquire about availability and
to reserve your space.  SkipperBud’s – Sequoit Harbor 1000 W. IL‐173 Antioch, IL 60002
