Who We Are

About Us

Sturgeon Bay was acquired by TopSide Marinas in early 2024.

In 1944, George J. “Butch” Baudhuin identified Sturgeon Bay’s position between Lake Michigan and Green Bay as a prime location for a marina and established Baudhuin Yacht Harbor. Over the years, the name changed to Sturgeon Bay Yacht Harbor and most recently, Bay Marine Yacht Harbor. In 1952, Baudhuin donated the land for what is now the Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club.

Co-owners, Mark and Matt Felhofer, purchased the Sturgeon Bay Yacht Harbor in July 2021. This seemed like a natural progression as the brothers continue to grow the business that their father, Fran Felhofer, started over 50 years ago. The purchase of the Yacht Harbor will allow Bay Marine to expand its yacht brokerage, storage and service capabilities. TopSide Marinas purchased the marina in May 2024 and plans to continue developing the nearly 80-year old marina and reclaim its distinction as one of the premier marinas on the Great Lakes.

Conveniently located between Lake Michigan and the Bay of Green Bay in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin, a unique boating experience awaits you at Bay Marine Yacht Harbor. Our friendly staff is dedicated to serving our customers on an individual basis offering quality service, care and attention.

Bay Marine Yacht Harbor offers a variety of well protected seasonal and transient slips for boats up to 100 feet, a full service fuel dock with ethanol-free gasoline and diesel, clean showers, saltwater swimming pool, laundry facilities, free wi-fi and outdoor grilling & socializing areas. The Marina is just a short walk or bike ride away from great restaurants and historic downtown Sturgeon Bay.
