Brewer Yacht Yard Group consolidates Rhode Island marinas


Brewer Yacht Yard Group is restructuring two Warwick, R.I., marinas in an effort to better serve customers.

The Brewer Greenwich Bay South Yard will become part of the Brewer Cowesett Marina and the Greenwich Bay North and East yards will become the new Brewer Greenwich Bay Marina.

Chris Ruhling, who has held many leadership positions in the Brewer organization, will be general manager at the new Brewer Greenwich Bay Marina. Matt St. Angelo and Greg Bartoszuk will share management responsibilities at the newly expanded Brewer Cowesett Marina North and South.

“By realigning these two great operations into geographic entities that can better focus on their inherent strengths, we believe we can offer even more to customers at all of our Warwick locations,” Brewer Yacht Yard Group president Rives Potts said in a statement. “The existing Brewer Yacht Yard at Cowesett and Brewer Greenwich Bay South Yard share so many things already — proximity, customers, management and personnel,” Potts said. “It only makes sense to streamline these two operations into one facility that can serve their combined customers better. Meanwhile, the Greenwich Bay North and East yards already stand alone in Warwick Cove and share many of their own unique attributes — location, customers, staff and character.”

Existing Greenwich Bay South customers will be welcomed to Brewer Cowesett. Contracts, deposits, payments and work orders will be transferred.

Brewer Yacht Yard Group is the parent company of 24 Brewer marinas between Maryland and Maine.
