Re: Brewer Yacht Yard buys Mears and OBY

Brewer's is almost like a franchise, where you will always know what you're going to get. They are not all identical, but they are all clean, everything works, good power, water, pumpouts, etc, and generally of good quality. They have a more corporate approach than some mom and pops, but are more reliable on average.

btw, they are not a franchise. As far as I know, Jack Brewer still owns all 23 marinas himself and I'm told he visits each one at least twice per month (NYC to Maine, until now). I bet he's pushing 80. I met him once. Nice fella, in passing anyway.
