Welcome to Brewer Oxford Boat Yard & Marina

image description
Brewer Oxford Boat Yard & Marina (OBY) is a cruiser-friendly, full-service facility, offering repairs, refits, and upgrades to recreational power and sailing vessels of all sizes.

Brewer Oxford Boatyard is located on Maryland's Eastern Shore in the historic Port of Oxford. The town began as a plantation trading post, but later followed the ups and downs of the local shell fish industry. Today, Oxford is home to a blend of full-time and seasonal residents, as well as many vacation rental properties, all supported by a number of excellent restaurants, B&Bs, bars, and area attractions. And, best of all, Oxford's best handmade ice cream is found within walking distance of the boat yard!

Brewer Oxford Boat Yard & Marina's skilled crew and close-knit community are two of the many reasons this yard is a boater's paradise. But there are many other reasons recreational mariners are drawn here. Sailboat racing is a big focus in the region, and nearby Tred Avon Yacht Club hosts two significant Chesapeake events, the Oxford Regatta (August) and the Hammond Cup (September). Upwards of 100 boats take part in these Annapolis to Oxford races each year. Another popular annual event is the Chesapeake Log Canoe Races, held on two separate weekends in August. And, of course, the Fourth of July fireworks display is not to be missed!

This quaint setting offers many conveniences. A general store, the Oxford Market, is just a few blocks away and offers lunchtime deli service, light groceries, beer and wine. For getting around locally, bike rentals are available.

Easton, the nearest major town, is just nine miles away. There you'll find Lowes, West Marine, and several major grocery stores.

Accredited by the Maryland Clean Marina Program, OBY is sure to be a place you'll be proud to visit or call your home port. For more information, please feel free to call us at (410) 226-5101, or stop by for a tour of our facilities.

About the Area

Brewer Oxford Boat Yard & Marina is located in Oxford, one of the oldest towns in Maryland. Oxford marks the year 1683 as its official founding, when it was first named by the Maryland General Assembly as a seaport and was laid out as a town. A charming, tree-lined, and waterbound village with a population of less than 1,000, its quiet charm, fresh air, summer breezes, and clean water provide a haven from the hustle and bustle of city life for boaters, weekend visitors, and summer residents.

For those wishing to explore the Chesapeake Bay, Oxford offers a variety of things to do. See a play at the Oxford Community Center, stop by the Oxford Museum, or hop aboard the Oxford-Bellevue Ferry, America's oldest privately owned ferry, and take a short drive to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum!

If you're looking for that charming, small-town feel, Brewer Oxford Boat Yard & Marina is just the place to meet all your boating needs.
