Burger Boat Company: Burger’s first Great Lakes Gathering

Burger Boat Company held its first Great Lakes Gathering July 22 through July 24, 2011 at Bay Harbor Resort, Bay Harbor, Michigan for yacht owners, their guests, captains and crew.

A variety of yachts ranging from a 1937 36’ Burger to a 2003 127’ Tri-Deck Burger, cruised to Bay Harbor for the three day Great Lakes Gathering. Owners and their guests had the opportunity to meet the Burger staff and join other attendees at various events including a dinner with a bonfire on the shores of Little Traverse Bay, a private luncheon in Harbor Springs, a Saturday evening Yacht Hop and a Owners and Captains Roundtable discussion.

With perfect weather and a pristine location, guests were able to experience Bay Harbor Resort, various local activities, award winning restaurants and unique boutiques.

The Burger 2011 Great Lakes Gathering provided an opportunity to further develop friendships and foster great camaraderie. Burger thanks each owner, guest, captain and crew who participated to help make this first time event extremely memorable.
