Overview

Stamford has long been a destination for both sailors and power boaters alike. The city boasts a wonderful marine history that dates back to the warships that were once built and launched in Stamford Harbor to the old tugs, rum chasers, and sub chasers that also cruised the local waterways. There are numerous entertaining stories about the magnificent sailboats and colossal meg-yachts which have either visited the area or claimed it as their home. The Stamford Yacht Club, which was founded in 1890 and is located amongst the beautiful and historic homes in the Shippan area of the shoreline, has been the host to some of the most prominent sailing races and elaborate yachting affairs in all of New England for over a century. The Luders Marine Company, which was based where the current day Brewers Yacht Haven is, holds a distinct place in the world-wide nautical community as being one of the greatest boat builders in the history of yachting.
