Sequoit Harbor, an Antioch landmark established in 1958, sits on nearly 30 acres bound by IL Route 173 to the North and Sequoit Creek to the South. The marina consists of 208 slips, a fuel dock, launch ramps, hoist and travellift wells, 15,000 square foot showroom and a 10,000 square foot service shop. Sequoit Harbor also offers full and selfservice inout for the summer season. Future plans include a drystack building for yearround indoor boat storage, a new showroom and additional storage buildings. Marina amenities include meticulously landscaped grounds and dockfront parking.

SkipperBud’s – Sequoit Harbor is Northern Lake County’s onwater “Boating Supercenter” offering service and sales for new, used and brokerage boats including pontoon and deckboats, fishing boats, tow boats, center consoles, bowriders, cruisers and jet boats.

The marina was acquired from previous owner Terry Upton. SkipperBud’s has hired all Sequoit Harbor personnel. The knowledge of the long term employees and help from Terry Upton has made the transition seamless.
