SAIL NEW ENGLAND - New Boat Shakedown

Brewer Yacht Yards locations

Sound Yachting's offices and docks are located in the North Yard of Brewer Pilots Point Marina in Westbrook, CT.

Brewer Pilots Point is a 1,000 slip facility at the heart of an extensive network of Brewer yacht yards stretching all along the New England coastline from Maine to New York.

Brewer Yacht Yards are our partners in offering not only first class slips for our customers (either full-season berths or transient slips while cruising New England waters) but also in providing full repair and service capabilities.

This support from the Brewer network, combined with the wonderful cruising grounds that New England offers, makes this the ideal location to get fully familiar with a new boat and to complete a thorough shakedown of its systems.

Shakedown sailing

Not only does the New England region provide great destinations (follow the Destinations link below for more details) but it offers a wide choice of sailing challenges to assist in getting acclimatized to a new boat - from simply harbor-hopping to full-blown offshore sailing, including the opportunity for overnight passages.

This means there can be no better preparation for boat or crew before heading for all points south, all while staying within easy reach of the network of support services, should they be needed.

As testament to this, you will see New England waters featuring in many on-line cruising blogs.

Please follow this link to find out more about the Brewer network.

And please contact us to learn about discounts we can secure for our customers with Brewer yards, as well as for more detailed advice on the various routes to follow when ready to head south from New England.
