Northern Michigan Utility
25’ Utility Runabout penned for the Lakeland waters of Northern Michigan
It’s hard to beat an open utility for the all around perfect summer runabout. With room to move around and endless arrangement possibilities, we wanted to create a great starting point that could be customized to suite many preferences. We call this our Northern Michigan Utility as she’s designed to be easily trailered and enjoyed on our inland waterways.
The design provides ample freeboard and room for 6 while back to back seating allows easy conversation when underway. This design is flexible so the addition of a wet bar could be great for entertaining as the motor box is a perfect place to set out hors d’oeuvres.
A well-styled and removable sun top can be fitted to cover the forward seats or a fixed frame rag top version could be fashioned to really extend the boating season. Whether powered with a small block V8 or one of the new compact diesels, this utility will be efficient and quick. Painted or bright topsides and an open arrangement make this one elegant design suitable for many tastes.
