Marina chain doubles fuel discounts


Brewer Yacht Yards, a chain of 22 full-service boatyards and marinas throughout New England, announced it will double the fuel discounts its customers receive this summer.

Seasonal Brewer customers already receive a 10 cent per gallon discount on gasoline and diesel at all Brewer fuel docks, while customers who keep their boats at a Brewer yard year-round are eligible for a 20 cent discount. Effective April 1, these discounts will become 20 cents and 40 cents per gallon, respectively.

"We know there is a lot of economic uncertainty out there these days," said Jack Brewer, President of Brewer Yacht Yards. "One of the biggest concerns we hear from our customers this spring is that they are very nervous about what fuel prices are going to do this year. Therefore, for this summer anyway, we plan to increase the fuel discounts for our customers. We always want to see customers enjoy their boats as much as they can every year, so this just makes sense when the cost of fuel is such a big concern."

All Brewer Yacht Yards fuel docks carry 89-octane gasoline and premium diesel fuel treated with ValvTect marine fuel additives.

All 22 Brewer locations from New York to Maine will be hosting an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. In addition to a number of raffle prizes, including an opportunity to win free dockage at any Brewer location, each marina will host yard tours and conduct giveaways of merchandise.
