Abstract: “Situated on a peninsula and separated in two halves by Stamford Harbor, the land that is now Brewers Yacht Haven figures prominently in the city’s history. From its days as Luders Marine Construction in the early – to mid – 1900s to its present day incarnation as an ecologically progressive marina, the site has embodied coastal Stamford’s dual personality, forever treading the tightrope between commerce and pleasure. As recently as 150 years ago, residents dipped their toes into Long Island Sound, steamer shuttles floated hundreds of passengers weekly to Manhattan and factories churned out products as well as toxins. Our predecessors made use of the Sound’s beauty and natural resources and, as advances in technology allowed, outfoxed the limitations of the city’s forbidding shoreline terrain.

Today, this environmentally progressive, state-of-the-art marina consists of two sites. Yacht Haven West has slips as long as 139 feet and accommodates boats that average 42 feet in length. Yacht Haven East’s slips are more shallow and house more powerboats. In all, the marina hosts 650 slips, two yacht brokers, a yacht rigger, sail makers, wood and glass boat works, the Stamford Marine Police, a sailing school and the marine operations for the environmental educational organization Sound Waters.”   Malerie Yolen-Cohen, pp. 47-48.   (Copyright 2001 by Living In Stamford.
