Lake Michigan on a yacht

A few of my friends and I were invited to a party on a yacht. This thing was amazing. There was 5 bathrooms on this boat. The owners of this boat live on this boat year round, spending summers in Chicago and winters in Florida. This seven year old Broward was custom built from the hull up and was the last boat built in Saugatuck, MI before Broward moved their operations to Florida a few years ago.

Unfortunately the skies opened up as we were trying to find the dock and even with an umbrella I was socked. But the skies cleared up by the time we headed out on Lake Michigan for a little cruise.

This boat was so big I couldn’t get a picture of the whole boat

Now, that’s a serious GPS

Every Saturday night during the summer months, the city of Chicago has some really nice fireworks.

My friends and I had a good time and we were the last ones off the boat.
I am not a big fan of motorized boats, but this thing was really cool.

Yep...that was a blast. I liked the way a 100 feet boat was rocking while you try to go up on the spiral stair case! That boat is worth some serious case!

Wow, that looks like fun. Too bad I had to miss it.
