Mitch Nathanson, owner of Coastal Properties Management (CPM), announced the sale of two of their marinas located in Oxford Maryland, Oxford Boatyard and Mears Yacht Haven, to the Brewer Yacht Yards group on January 3, 2014.
Mitch Nathanson has been the owner of Oxford Boatyard since 1988 and Mears Yacht Haven since 1994. As one of the oldest operating boatyards in the country, Oxford Boatyard has been in operation since 1866 offering complete yacht and boat retrofits, major and minor repairs, AWLGRIP fine painting service, engine repowers, rigging, electrical and fiberglass repairs by its large full-time ABYC and factory-certified technicians. Oxford Boatyard also offers marina dockage and land-storage for large vessels of all types, with a 75 ton Travelift and 35 ton hydraulic Yard Boss trailer.
Mears Yacht Haven, located on Town Creek offers a Yacht Club setting in its large marina facility with pool, fuel and supplies. Dockage is available on an annual or transient basis, year-round. A short walk to the historic town of Oxford makes this one of the most popular marina destinations on the Chesapeake Bay.
Mitch and the staff at both facilities have been working closely with the Brewer Yacht Yards group to make the transition seamless and beneficial to all of its customers and staff. “I could not be more pleased with the Brewer Yacht Yard group and this transition of ownership,” Mitch Nathanson said in a statement. “The Brewer family has such a stellar, professional reputation within the industry; they bring with them a very high degree of knowledge and experience that I feel our customers and staff will only benefit from. I am also thrilled that our current staff at both facilities will continue in their roles to offer the same warm, expert customer service which Oxford Boatyard and Mears Yacht Haven are known for. It was important to me to be able to ensure our employees that they would continue with their jobs after the transition and for our customers to know that the level of service and operations would not be diminished in any way. We all wish the Brewer Yacht Yards family the very best of success.”
