Irish Boat Shop Inc. Aquapalooza: The Largest Party On Water!

On July 18th, The Largest Party on Water returns with the 7th Annual Aquapalooza at Ferry Beach in Charlevoix. Last year, more than 200 boats and 1000 people came out to celebrate the kickoff of Venetian Festival with live music, games, and fun! As a friendly reminder, please do not move your boats into the Ferry Beach swim area before they have removed the swim buoys, Saturday Morning. Vessels may be ticketed by local law enforcement for entering the swim area early. This year, the fun will start at noon and continue until 6:00 pm with live performances by Soul Xpress! There will be prizes shot into the crowd with our new air cannon and slingshot as well as kids games on land. Venetian Festival will run through July 25th, with great events happening every day.

Irish Boat Shop Inc. NM 17 Has Been Restored!
Ethos NM17

NM 17 underwent a complete restoration this winter and is looking spectacular for being 80-years-old! Originally named Bee Gee and built in 1935 for a Lake Charlevoix resident, NM 17 has since migrated to Harbor Springs with the rest of the active NM Fleet. This winter, we removed the existing finish, replaced the screws on the entire hull with bronze screws, replaced the splines with cypress bound by epoxy and smoothed the hull to make fair. After the hull was smooth, we painted the hull and varnished the deck for a spectacular finish! To complete the package, a custom made set of sails were ordered and installed on the boat. Finally, Ethos is ready for a summer of racing!

18 Northern Michigan Sloops were originally built, with an additional 8 being built by Irish Boat Shop, for a total of 26 boats. These 32-foot sloops are both elegant and fast one-design boats kept on moorings around Harbor Springs. The fleet is very active and can be seen racing most weekends during the summer around Little Traverse Bay.

Silipint at Irish Boat Shop

We are now carrying Silipint silicone drinkware in both locations. Silicone is extremely resistant to heat and cold, functioning from -72F to 650F. You can bake muffins or freeze ice in your Silipints that are easily removed. Silicone also insulates hot and cold drinks. The ink printed on the side is also silicone based and will not fade or chip away. They are sturdy enough to hold beverages and flexible enough to bounce and bend when empty. The best part about silicone is that it won't break if you take a rogue wave on the water!

You can do this with them too!

Please contact us for more information.
