About Our Wilmington Party Boat
In May of 2017 Chris Haynes left his high tech sales career and the cold, harsh Wisconsin winters and moved to Wilmington, North Carolina. He had friends there, and as luck would have it, by the middle of the following summer he landed a gig piloting a new-to-the-area, 15-passenger “pedal-pub” style tour boat.
Things were going well until the season ended abruptly with a knockout punch from Hurricane Florence. Interested in running a similar business of his own he offered to buy the boat, and he stayed in touch with the owner through the offseason. Five months passed, and finally the owner agreed to sell him the boat.
The 2019 season has kicked into gear with the same great pedal-pub-on-the-water experience as before, operating out of the same great location. The new owners, Chris and Mary Haynes have come up with a new logo and a new name – BrewBoat Wilmington.
We look forward to making a splash this season, and we hope to see you all on the water soon! Catch our BrewBoat right here in downtown Wilmington at Port City Marina, and see for yourself what the buzz is all about!
