Pier 33 Marina of St. Joseph, Michigan is preparing to get new boaters-to-be on the water this weekend with boat demonstrations, Friday June 10 thru Sunday June 12, in celebration of National Marina Day.

We’re going to provide examples of three different styles during Ride and Decide Demo Days: a stern drive runabout from Chaparral, an outboard center console from Robalo and a Chaparral Vortex jet boat.

Pier 33 will be providing complimentary boat demonstrations of new boats from Chaparral and Robalo throughout the weekend, Noon to 4 pm each day, during the Ride and Decide Demo Days promotion and in conjunction with the June 11 observance of National Marina Day.

“It is vital that we make this extra effort to let people get on board for a ride, so that they can experience how much fun boating really can be” said Pier 33 General Manager Tighe Curran “and there’s no better time to do it than right now, at the very start of summer”.

Curran noted the importance of reaching potential first-time boaters who are seeking to learn more about the boating experience and the opportunity this presents to give them the real feel of being on the water.

“We’re going to provide examples of three different styles during Ride and Decide Demo Days: a stern drive runabout from Chaparral, an outboard center console from Robalo and a Chaparral Vortex jet boat. Our staff will run the boats and help these visitors learn about the best ways to get on the water. As an industry, we need to work harder to grow this wonderful, affordable outdoor recreational activity”.

Demonstrations will be provided Friday June 10 through Sunday June 12, Noon to 4 pm at Pier 33: 250 Anchors way; St. Joseph, Michigan; 49085.
