Brewer Yacht Yard Group has announced the intended purchase of Essex Island Marina in Essex, CT. The new Brewer Essex Island Marina will join the company’s 23 other full-service marinas and boat yards between Maryland and Maine. The sale is expected to be completed mid-September, 2014.

Essex Island Marina began in 1955 as a boat yard 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.

In addition to the 125 slips in the marina, a pool, restaurant, game room, lounges and other offerings, the island has indoor storage and full-service capabilities including a 30-ton boat lift.
