Mattapoisett Boatyard Buys Leisure Shores Marina

Dave and Ned Kaiser, owners of Mattapoisett Boatyard in Mattapoisett, MA, have announced the acquisition of Brandt Cove Marina (formerly Leisure Shores Marina), located at the end of Brandt Island Rd., in Mattapoisett. Leisure Shores was formerly owned and managed by Robert Ringuette, who purchased the property in 1982.

The new owners plan to clean up the existing property, which includes the removal of several derelict boats and assorted marine items. The majority of the work is expected to occur before the end of July. The docks and grounds will also be improved.

“We hope to create and maintain a clean, friendly and professional facility that will be enjoyed by local boaters and their guests,” the Kaisers wrote in a press release. “We also hope to make Brandt Cove Marina a destination for boaters travelling in the area.”
