GENOA CITY, Wisconsin (WMTV) – A custom boat maker announced Thursday that it will move from Michigan to Wisconsin, bringing new jobs to workers in the area.

According to Governor Tony Evers and Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation secretary and CEO Missy Hughes, the Grand Craft boats will be moving from Holland, Michigan to Genoa City, Wisconsin.
