“The idea of building a climate-controlled ferry for our customers right here in Michigan – instead of sending the work elsewhere – really appealed to us,” said Bill Shepler, CEO of Shepler’s. “As a third-generation family business, we’re focused on giving back to the region that has been so good to us.”
A $3.8 million ferry, thought to be the first ever built in Michigan, will soon be under construction at Moran Iron Works in Onaway. Shepler’s Mackinac Island Ferry is investing in the project both to provide customers with the latest in ferry travel and to help bolster the Northeast Michigan economy.
