Excellent service. After hailing them on Channel 68 they immediately sent launch to guide us to our mooring which was well maintained amd had a large pennant. The restrooms were lean. The young staff was cheerful and offered to help with everything.
One of our favorite stops. Excellent, clean facilities and a friendly, helpful crew.
We had not been to Brewer Dauntless for three years but nothing had changed. Everyone was just as friendly and helpful as they were before, with the same harbormaster and the same great launch service. Hope to don't have to wait another three years before we make it back!
Brewer Dauntless: Staff are excellent and very friendly. Facility is always spotless. We make a point of staying here at least once or twice each season.
Brewers Dauntless in Essex is a beautiful, well maintained marina. Great facilities. We met wonderful neighbors at our slip and enjoyed a night out with them. We are looking forward to returning in July.
The Marina is located on the west bank of the CT River just north of marker R-26 in the middle of the Essex mooring field. 35 floating docks, and a 150 fixed dock (which also serves as the Valvtect fuel dock) can accommodate any boat. Ample electric is available from 30, 50 to 100 amp service, as well as water and WIFI at each slip. Additionally, the marina has 55 moorings, which are serviced by the marinas launch.
Dauntless Marina was originally known as the Essex Paint and Chemical Company in the 1920s until fire destroyed the building in 1924. It was rebuilt and continued operation until 1986. The original Chandlery of Essex was constructed in 1924, and operated successfully for decades. It was eventually acquired by the Brewer Yacht Yard group in 2008 and later acquired by Safe Harbor Marinas in 2017.
