My 1985 Catalina 30 sailboat is ready to take you and your family or friends on a once in a lifetime vacation voyage into Northwest Michigan's sailing paradise. A one day sail from Charlevoix takes you to Beaver Island, Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Boyne City, Leland, Traverse City, South Manitou Island, Mackinac Island and many other exciting and scenic ports. 'ZONIE' is fully equipped for cruising.
The large galley has a natural gas range with oven, double sinks, hot and cold pressurized water, ice box, a full assortment of pots, pans, dishes and glassware. The salon accommodates up to 7 around the large table witch converts into a double berth for sleeping. A comfortable settee occupies the starboard side of the salon. The navigation station has a complete set of charts for Lakes Michigan, Huron, Charlevoix and all harbors and islands. In addition are the Port's of Call books for all the harbors and their towns. Also in the nav station is a CD player, stereo radio and marine radio.
The captains quarter berth aft of the navigation station sleeps 2 in a double berth. The head has a marine toilet with holding tank, shower and sink. Sheets, bedding and towels are provided. Across from the head is a clothes locker with drawers and shelves. Forward is the crew's cabin with a double V-berth and a large deck hatch over head for exceptional star gazing at night. The cockpit has wheel steering, a depth sounder, bimini sun shade, seating for 8, 2 speed winches, GPS, swim ladder and a cockpit table. The jib is roller furling and all lines run back to the safety of the cockpit.
A 10 foot Quicksilver or Zodiac inflatable dingy is provided along with a 3.5 HP outboard. The deck is large and spacious for sunning and lounging in port.

I grew up on Lake Charlevoix and learned to sail with my father. I've spent my entire life sailing the great lakes and can advise you on the beat places to sail to in the area. I am a Coast Guard Licensed Captain with a 50 Ton rating. My twin sons also grew up on the lake and learned to sail with me from a very young age. One is now on a 110' Cutter with the US Coast Guard in
the Persian Gulf.
There is no better place to spend the summer than Charlevoix, Michigan and no better way to spend it than on a sailboat!
If you like the water, why not live on it for a week!
