The Suttons Bay Marina is located just east of downtown along Lake Michigan and features Marina Park, a public beach where residents and visitors can sunbathe, swim, and play in the clear waters of Lake Michigan. The Park hosts picnic tables, grills and volleyball nets. The water of Suttons Bay is shallow with sugar sand making this beach a favorite for families who can spend the day playing volleyball or watching the kids play in the children’s play area. The Marina gives boating visitors a place to moor while they enjoy all that Suttons Bay has to offer .
The Village recently upgraded the floating docks, power and water systems. The upgrades are all part of the 2012 Marina Masterplan. All these upgrades not only enhanced performance but also safety. With a floating dock system the marina is capable of handling high and low lake levels. This aspect has become crucial with near lake level lows in 2015 and near high lake levels this season.
One of the largest aspects of this project has been the power upgrade. As a result of these improvements, if a boat is leaking current, the system is designed to trip the breaker, ultimately stopping the leak into the surrounding water.
We urge everyone to come and check out the Marina’s new improved infrastructure. We feel extremely grateful to offer the community a safer and more modern Marina environment
