About BremertonNamed for Seattle real estate entrepreneur William Bremer, Bremerton is home to Naval Base Kitsap - Bremerton, the northern outpost of the Pacific Fleet. The base also is responsible for the city's largest industry, the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard.

North of the ferry terminal, Bremerton Boardwalk offers a promenade along the shoreline, which is indented with bays and inlets.
