Burger Boat Honored by Maritime Museum

Wednesday, October 07, 2009

The Wisconsin Maritime Museum in Manitowoc, Wisconsin held its 7th Annual Commodore’s Ball Saturday October 3, 2009. This year’s theme was “The Burger Tradition: Past and Present,” celebrated the heritage of Wisconsin's own world-class yacht builder by commemorating Burger Boat Company’s rich history dating back to 1863.

The black-tie event is a major fundraiser for the museum and includes a raffle as well as silent and live auctions. The highlight of the live auction was a package donated by Burger. It included an exclusive tour of Burger’s facilities and a private cruise, complete with wine and hors d’oeuvres, for eight aboard the 1939 48’ Burger motor yacht Angus. Funds raised from the event are used for educational purposes and day-to-day operations of the museum.

Burger, a long-time supporter of the Wisconsin Maritime Museum, is dedicated to preserving the area’s maritime heritage and is the sponsor of the museum’s Children’s Waterways Room, an interactive area that allows museum guests of all ages to experience boating.
