Brewers Yacht Haven is Closing Down

Surprised there isn't a thread on this yet:

Brewer’s Yacht Haven West [in Stamford, Connecticut], one of the Northeast’s largest full-service marinas with a boatyard for major winter storage, will shut down in the fall after losing its lease from a developer that plans to remediate and develop the land.

Brewer

Not good news for the boating industry

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

On the other hand...just 12 miles across LI Sound from Stamford, Brewers in Glen Cove has bought the adjacent marina and will now have 600 slips. Maybe a good business decision.

SB,

Thanks for the news. A group of friends and I sailed there last January, and I soloed to there just last March. Beautiful marina with a little "harbor" on it's grounds that makes for an ultra sheltered area.

Here's a picture form their site. I would imaging that the existing slips in the center of the picture would stay in place, and the little "harbor" barely seen on the right. But the marina grounds at the top of the picture is what's going away. That's my guess anyway.



Regards Brewers Glen Cove, the marina next door to it was in bankruptcy for a long time. I think the owners bought at the real estate peak or something.

Brewers Glen Cove is a well run operation. They serviced our prop a couple years ago, it fell off very soon afterwards. Mistakes can happen. They reimbursed me completely for a brand new prop, prop nut, zinc, express shipping and the diver to get it all fixed at a remote location (Martha's Vineyard). That philosophy helps retain customers.

Regards,
Brad

Probably going to condos. Great. Another destination for boaters destroyed.

Not sure I'm too happy about this actually. I've done winter storage in Glen Cove Marina the past two winters and liked the place and the people. Now I have to support a pool, flower beds, yada yada ...

Last I checked, Brewers was almost $1K more in total fees for the winter.

I wonder if Brewer's is betting on increased traffic/exposure from the proposed Glen Cove Ferry Terminal project across Glen Cove Creek?

I would think the Glen Cove Ferry Terminal under construction will deter people from staying year round at Brewers with the resultant noise, traffic, and congestion.
