Our full-time fully certified mechanics service running gear, upgrade sanitation systems, update electrical systems, repower engines, and replace fuel systems, among other services. This crew’s exceptional skill has earned our yard the reputation of being “the place to go”, especially for engine and bow thruster installations. To keep sharp and up-to-date, our crew also attends annual Brewer-sponsored seminars, and participates in all in-house training opportunities. Our chief mechanic is a certified ABYC electrician.
The Greenport Brewer Service Yard is a member of:
With approximately nine acres of land and 23,000 sq. ft. of indoor storage space, we maintain a fleet of 400 yachts, servicing the North Fork and South Fork, as well as Sag Harbor and East Hampton. We have a good reputation; offer complete mechanical, electrical, rigging, carpentry, finish, and fiberglass service; and are considered “the place to go” for engine and bow thruster installations, carpentry work, keel modifications, and paint work. Though well known for our skilled carpenters and diesel mechanics, we consider our strength to be our ability to handle all types of jobs. Also, as one of Long Island’s largest sailboat rigging departments, we can evaluate, repair, replace and modify any of your rigging needs. In-house swaging capability, line splicing and wheel leathering services are available.
With a 70-ton travel lift, a 25-ton remote control lift, a 20-ton hydraulic trailer, a roll-off trailer, a hydraulic mast hoist, and a mobile manlift, we are well equipped to handle the needs of almost any yacht. Our buildings are meticulously maintained and include an insulated, fire-protected work/storage shed; a well lit, state-of-the-art rig shop; and a heated, fully ventilated work bay for fiberglass, paint, and varnish application. We also manage a well-stocked parts room, which supports our service staff and allows our team to operate with the greatest degree of efficiency.
Our finish department can handle a full complement of services, from structural fiberglass and cosmetic gelcoat repair, to yacht-quality paint and varnish application. Our crew is also licensed to apply bottom paint (considered a pesticide in NY) and is well versed in buffing and waxing hulls and superstructures.
Our electrical team is ABYC certified and capable of installing and servicing all your electronic needs from inverters, to battery banks, to complete electronics packages.
We have a very skilled, experienced carpentry department and truly welcome any woodworking challenge!
Our work includes building custom hatches, installing teak and holly cabin soles, refitting toe rails, and, uniquely, building kayaks and ice boats on occasion. Our carpentry department draws inspiration and experience from our General Manager, who began his career apprenticing as a wooden boat builder and has spent many years working on boats ranging from kayaks to America’s Cup contenders.
Seasoned sailors, passionate about their sport, staff our rigging department. Our crew not only offers basic services such as stepping and usnstepping masts, installing furling units, servicing winches, and modifying running rigging, but also offers complete mast surveys. Our rigging shop and mast storage shed is state of the art.
Whether repairing a damaged keel, specing a new sailboat rig, modifying an interior, or expertly installing an engine, we provide top-quality service in every department. To learn more about what we have to offer, please call us or drop in to ask for a tour of our facilities.
