NEWS FOCUS Formerly owned by Flagship and Marinas International, Aqua Yacht Harbor on Pickwick Lake, Luka, Mississippi has 450 wet slips and dry storage for 140 vessels. “Some of the most prestigious owners and operators in the industry have become shareholders in our company,” Underwood stated. “They rolled their ownership and their assets into our pool and became part of our management team.” AIM actively seeks to invest in stable, private companies within three sectors: infrastructure, natural resources and property. It then structures its portfolio as Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs), considered by most as a strong performing asset class. The group owns MLPs in agriculture, fuel distribution, cold storage, waste management and rail infrastructure. Now, they are taking this approach with marinas. “AIM has a history of purchasing enough of a specific asset class that they have a scale to operate the combined business efficiently,” Underwood, who has over a decade’s experience working with Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), explained. “These niche spaces are a perfect fit for their background and how they approach business.” Looking at service The growth continues. With the Brewer acquisition in January, Safe Harbor Marinas is expanding its mission to include yard service. Currently employing 2,000 team members - 50 of whom are based at the Dallas headquarters - Safe Harbor Marinas wasn’t initially looking at the boatyard The 500-slip Cabrillo Isle Marina in San Diego Bay, California, was acquired as part of the Almar Marinas portfolio. side of the business. In the beginning, “we didn’t have any professionals in the organisation from a service background,” Underwood said. “It was not a focus of ours. We had a culture of service, but service didn’t mean fixing and working on boats, but rather how we serve our boaters. It was more from a hospitality side.” Enter Brewer Yacht Yards (BYY), the group that will usher Safe Harbor Marinas into that new field. Brewer is an old New England name and the yard itself was founded in 1964 on property that had been in the Brewer family since 1879. The Brewer family and team prides itself on its strong sense of history and tradition, viewing its original marina and later acquisitions as a lifestyle and not a hobby. As BYY manager Doug Domenie stated in a Marina World article in 2009, “Jack [Brewer’s] success lies in the fact that he came in and ran the boatyard as a business, not as a pastime.” “With Brewer we gain another muscle,” Underwood said. “We gain not only a number of individuals who have a great deal of expertise in servicing boats, but we also gain a culture that has focused more than 50 years on delivering service with excellence. We will use that as an opportunity to grow.” BYY’s founder Jack Brewer confirmed this. “That was one of the reasons they wanted to acquire us,” he stated. “We have a good reputation for service. It opens a new universe for potential acquisitions; they will learn about service with Brewer and go from there.” Safe Harbor Marinas has now purchased all the Brewer yards, with the exception of one in South Freeport, Maine. The acquired marinas will remain Brewer yards, albeit with the Safe Harbor logo nearby. “Regionally that adds importance,” Underwood explained. “We want the Brewer culture to continue and grow throughout the area.” Indeed, three of BYY’s managers - Doug Domenie, Tim Moll and Rod Swift - will advance to become regional managers for Safe Harbor in order to guide the various Safe Harbor marinas through the ins and outs of running a boatyard. “We are bringing service to these other marinas,” Brewer continued. “Tim, Doug and Rod are proficient in the marina service business. They run very good service operations.” “They have tremendous experience between them,” Underwood concurred. - March/April 2017 23
