Leadership

The entire Brewer Yacht Yard team shares a common goal – making sure Brewer yards perform beyond customer expectations. This commitment for customer service is shared by the entire organization: from the seasonal summer staff, service crew, and office administration, through to our marina managers and the highest level of our leadership.

Any recommendations and suggestions on how we can continue to offer the best marinas and services in the industry are always welcome.
