Vantage Yacht Club has established an alliance with the two most well known leaders in the marine industry - Skipper Bud’s and Sea Ray. This relationship provides Vantage Members with the best service and highest quality yachts the marine industry has to offer.
Skipper Bud’s is the largest boat dealer in the Great Lakes Region and has a 40-year relationship with Sea Ray. Skipper Bud’s is a Certified Master and Ambassador level Sea Ray dealer and they employ a staff of 50 Mercury Master Level engine technicians. With over $30 Million in new inventory and 700 pre-owned and brokerage units, Skipper Bud’s is the largest yacht brokerage company in the Midwest.
Sea Ray is the world's largest manufacturer of superior quality pleasure boats producing more than 40 models ranging from 17 to 60 feet. Founded in 1959, Sea Ray was one of the first boat builders to use fiberglass and other high-tech composite materials in the construction of watercraft. The company's continuing innovations in unique styling, performance, interior design, technical systems and many other areas, plus many revolutionary breakthroughs in technology, have placed Sea Ray at the top of the world's pleasure boat builders for more than half a century.
In addition to offering many quality boat brands, Vantage Yacht Club is delighted to manage and operate Sea Ray products. Vantage Members have access to brand-new 2012 and 2013 Sea Ray models that are equipped with state-of-the-art technologies. For example, Sea Ray’s Axius® drive, the intuitive joystick that makes docking as easy as “point and click” and Skyhook®, the “virtual anchor” system that uses GPS to hold and maintain a vessel’s position, even in the presence of wind and current.
