Our Story

Brewer Yacht YardsWe’ve Been Helping Boaters For More Than A Century.

R.G. Brewer, of Mamaroneck opened his chandlery and hardware store in 1879, beginning a long tradition of personal service to professional and recreational boat owners, sailors and fishermen. In 1964 we wanted to provide more of that tried and true personal service to more boaters, and acquired the boatyard out back. It became known as Brewer Post Road Boat Yard and before long was recognized as one of the premier boat yards in the area.

Over the next 50 years, Jack Brewer learned a lot about running boatyards and providing service to yachtsmen. The importance of professional staff and immaculately maintained facilities, the need for top-flight riggers, carpenters and mechanics, the benefits of constant formal training and the best equipment and tools. Anticipating our customers’ needs, paying close attention to detail, and always following through, ensure we would get things right the first time.

Jack Brewer’s philosophy of professionalism and dedication to service excellence lives on today. When the Brewer portfolio of marinas joined the Safe Harbor Marinas family in 2017, Jack wanted to ensure that the legacy he had built over half a century would continue. Safe Harbor Marinas continues to stay true to the core of Jack Brewer’s outlook on running a marina. We are entirely dedicated to providing a world-class marina experience to all of out boaters from Massachusetts to Maryland and across the country to our more than 70 premier locations nationwide.

We invite you to experience what a Safe Harbor Membership can mean for you and your boat. Stop by any one of our nationwide locations and we would be glad to show you around!
