Assemblyman Keith Brown (R,C-Northport) was very proud to receive the news that Seymour’s Boatyard, a historic local business in Northport he nominated to be included on the Historic Business Preservation Registry, will be added to the registry. The business was first established by Dexter C. Seymour in 1923, and Brown hopes this recognition of Seymour’s historical significance will resonate with not only Northport community residents but also with Joseph Quinn, grandson of Dexter C. Seymour and proud past owner of the boatyard.
“Seymour’s Boatyard and the Weber family have had a tremendous positive impact on the Northport community for many years,” said Brown. “It’s clear this family-owned business, which has looked out over Northport Harbor for a century, is a timeless treasure that has served Northport boaters well since its establishment. Congratulations to Seymour’s and the entire Weber family on this distinction!”
“The Weber Family sincerely thanks Assemblyman Brown and his staff for the time taken to recognize Seymour’s Boatyard as a New York State Historic Business,” said Dave Weber. “As we celebrate our centennial year serving Northport Harbor, we can reflect on the true value Dexter Seymour gave to his hometown of Northport Village. Dedication to family boating and customer service was a cornerstone of Captain Seymour’s time at the helm and now Dave Weber Sr., Margaret and Dave Jr. proudly honor those values by maintaining Seymour’s rich nautical history now etched in time here on Northport Harbor.”
