Brewer adds Maryland marinaFeb 5, 2014 by Guest Writer
Connecticut-based Brewer Yacht Yard Group has acquired Oxford Boatyard and Mears Yacht Haven Marina, in Oxford, Md. The new Brewer Oxford Boatyard & Marina (BOBY) joins the company’s 22 other full-service marina and boatyard locations between New York and Maine.
“We are thrilled to be taking over this wonderful operation” said Rives Potts, President of Brewer Yacht Yard Group. “This allows us extend our operations further south to accommodate customers who travel the east coast each year and to gain new friends in the Chesapeake Bay area. This is a well-run boatyard/marina with great potential and we are excited about the opportunity it presents.”
Founded in 1866, Oxford Boatyard is located on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The yard features a 75-ton Travelift and an experienced staff who perform refits to both power and sailing yachts, large and small.
The property will have more than 170 wet slips for yachts up to 100 feet and dry storage for more than 100 boats.
