Brewer Yacht Yards and Mystic Seaport in Connecticut are offering discounts to visiting vessels.

The Brewer Cruising Club Card will be offered to transient boaters staying at Mystic Seaport, in addition to all 22 Brewer marinas throughout New England. After spending their first night at a Brewer marina or at Mystic Seaport, boaters will receive the club card, entitling them to a 25 percent discount on subsequent stays at any Brewer marina.

Additionally, a savings of 5 cents a gallon of fuel will be offered at all Brewer fuel docks for the duration of the season.

“One of the best ways to visit Mystic Seaport is by boat and we are grateful for the support Brewer Yacht Yards is providing to our docks business. The revenue generated through transient slip rentals helps us maintain the maritime experience at the museum, and reaching recreational boaters in this manner supports our mission to forge an enduring connection to America’s maritime heritage,” Mystic Seaport president Steve White said in a statement.
