We recently debuted our new Weldcraft 300 Cuddy King OS at the 2020 Chicago Boat Show. She WOWED attendees with her impressive size as well as the many custom features included in our "Great Lakes Edition" package. We are fortunate to have very talented people who can do custom welding, custom electrical systems, electronics, and custom fishing gear. Because of this we created this package specifically for fishing in the Great Lakes. Take a walk-through with Bruce from WeldCraft as he discusses this new 300 Cuddy King OS aluminum fishing monster and her great features to make die-hard fishermen comfortable in any type of weather.
Reed Yacht Sales was awarded as a Top 3 Dealer for 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022!
The Chicago Boat Show had many boats but two favorites were definitely the Zodiac Open 6.5 and the all new Zodiac Medline 7.5. Take a video tour with Bob from Zodiac and Mark from Reed Yacht Sales and explore both these awesome ribs!

RYS's own Mark Derenne returned from the Ranger Tug Rendezvous up in Charlevoix, Michigan. What a great time! Ranger Tugs and their happy owners ventured in from all over the Great Lakes for some days of fun and fraternity. The harbor at Charlevoix is delightful spot, adjacent to a lovely downtown park and entertainment pavilion, main street shopping, many restaurants and enjoyable amenities. Mark stayed on a beautiful Ranger Tug R-29 that he brought to the event.
