Check out our LAUNCH CAM! Now, whether you live nearby or live in Illinois or Wisconsin, you can see your boat being launched or hauled-out via the internet. You are still welcome to take the morning off work and personally watch your boat as we launch it, but if you are too busy that day, the Launch Cam is the next best thing!

We offer one of the cleanest and secure winter storage facilities on the Great Lakes! Many of our winter storage customers travel the extra mile from Chicago, Milwaukee, Kenosha, Indiana, Lansing and Detroit areas for our exceptional facilities, competitive rates, and peace-of-mind. Outdoor storage and indoor heated storage are available. The Shipyard is equipped with one 35 and one 75-ton open end Travelifts and maintains a complete marine service department with 130,000 sq.ft. of heated inside winter storage.

Many services are available while your boat is in winter storage. You can have the bottom repainted, the hull waxed, remodel the interior, or have the deck stripped, sanded and revarnished. Our trained service technicians are here to serve you. Our marine technicians have been working with us for many many years (over 20 years!). These guys really know what they are doing and take great pride in their work and craftsmanship. You won't be disappointed in the quality of our work. We Guarantee It!

For the Do-It-Yourselfer, Owners are allowed to work on their own boats. Many boatyards are no longer allowing boatowners to work on their own boats. However, here at Eldeans, as long as owners follow a few guidelines (some are set forth by the Michigan Clean Marina Program), there is not a problem with do-it-yourself repairs and maintenance. Check out this article on "do-it-yourself" boatyards. Also, please familiarize yourself with this list of our Best Management Practices that "do-it-yourselfers" must follow.

Have your boat ready for cruising in the spring by maintaining it in the winter!
