The sun was shining and the lines were long for the Shipyard Tour at Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding and CenterPointe Yacht Services on Saturday. The Rotary Club of Sturgeon Bay presented the 26th Annual Shipyard Tour. Visitors got a look at the giant cranes and huge boats at the shipyard. It’s the only day tours are available of Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding and CenterPointe Yacht Services. Scott Bader is on the Rotary Shipyard Committee and he said the best part of the tour is seeing all the giant boats on the tour.
Peter Glassen is the Facilities Manager for Fincantieri, and he helped organize the event. With all the rain in the past week, crews had to get everything dry for Saturday so nobody would slip on anything.
Tickets were $15 and all proceeds went towards Rotary Club of Sturgeon Bay and all their projects. Bader said over 1,000 tickets were sold online before Saturday.
