Brewer adds new marina

Connecticut-based Brewer Yacht Yard Group plans to buy Essex Island Marina, in Essex, Conn. The new Brewer Essex Island Marina will join the company’s 23 other full-service marinas and boatyards between Maryland and Maine. The sale is expected to be completed this month.


“This beautiful and unique property will be a wonderful addition to our current Essex operation and continue to be a highly enjoyed boating destination,” said Rives Potts, president of Brewer Yacht Yard Group. “We envision lots of terrific rendezvous events and activities to be held here and are excited about the possibilities this location offers.”


Essex Island Marina began in 1955 as a boatyard and a few slips, but soon developed into a marina known for its amenities and services. The 13-acre private island is accessed by a ferry operated by the marina and nestles close to shore in the quintessential New England town of Essex.


In addition to the 125 slips, a pool, restaurant, game room and lounges, the island has indoor storage and full-service capabilities including a 30-ton boat lift. A unique asset of the location is the amount of open space including grassy lawn, sandy beach, and picnic areas.
