Powering Memories
Beacon Point Marine celebrates 25 years of helping boaters in Connecticut.

Few activities can have an impact on a person’s life quite like boating. When a person becomes a boater, a whole new world opens up. They can spend leisurely days on the water exploring the coast or traveling to new ports. They get to experience the excitement that comes from battling large fish offshore. They can bond with friends over watersports or evenings spent socializing onboard. And, for some, they get the satisfaction of sharing this new world with their children or grandchildren.

For 25 years, Connecticut’s Beacon Point Marine has been introducing friends and neighbors to the boating community. And, as they celebrate their 25th anniversary in 2016, they are just as committed and enthusiastic about helping boaters as they were on Day One.

Beacon Point Marine is a certified Clean Marina and 5-Star Dealership with locations in Cos Cob and Shelton, Connecticut. Northeast anglers have come to appreciate Beacon Point for their extensive selection of new and quality pre-owned sportfishing boats from some of the best brands around. They carry world-class Scout Boats, known for their innovative luxury center console and dual console fishing boats. Beacon Point also carries the intelligently designed and excellent fishing vessels from Sea Fox, featuring models such as their Commander, Traveler, and Voyager.  They also offer affordable fishing boats from Carolina Skiff and, for the exceptional social experience, Premier Pontoons.

Additionally, Beacon Point Marine is a full-service marine company with a professional tech certified service department committed to helping boaters. They can tackle engine work on outboard motors from Yamaha, Mercury and Suzuki. Both facilities offer summer slips and winter storage, haul outs, shrink wrap, fiberglass, electronics and more. And their Cos Cob location – home to the beautiful Greenwich Water Club – offers a gas dock and pumpout.

Children Should Wear Life Jackets on Boats - It's the Law

The U.S. Coast Guard's Boating Safety Division reminds all parents that their children should wear life jackets at all times while on board. Just like they wear bike helmets, they should put on their life jackets.

The coast guard says parents mistakenly believe they can dive into the water and rescue a child if an emergency occurs. This misconception is dangerous because:
  • You may not notice when the kid falls overboard
  • The child may not surface immediately
  • It can be difficult to spot a child in the water, especially if the boat is moving.
The best way to make kids wear their life jackets, they say, is by example. (Hint, hint!)

In Connecticut, effective Oct. 1, 2008, all children ages 12 or less are required to wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket while a vessel is underway, unless the child is below deck or in an enclosed cabin.

Let's keep the young 'uns safe on the water!
