Mackinaw City-April 30, 2015- Shepler’s Mackinac Island Ferry company is excited to release the first pictures of “Miss Margy”, a rather large vessel with a special name being built in Onaway, Michigan.
The project is one of Shepler’s Big 3 Initiatives announced by owner Chris Shepler on Sunny FM’s Shopping Show last week. The boat is named after Chris’ grandmother, who he credits much of the success of the family business, which celebrated it’s 70th anniversary this year!
The boat is being built in Onaway, and will have a soft-launch in Rogers City, before being detailed, painted, and hard launched in Mackinaw City. The hard-launch will take place on July 12th, and Michigan’s Governor Rick Snyder will stop by and christen the new boat with a bottle of Pure Michigan champagne in mid-July.
