Bremerton is a city in Kitsap County, Washington, USA. The population was 37,259 at the 2000 census. It is home to Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and the Bremerton Annex of Naval Base Kitsap. Bremerton is connected to downtown Seattle by a 60-minute ferry ride, which carries both vehicles and walk-on passengers.
It is located on the Kitsap Peninsula north of Sinclair Inlet and west of the body of water known as Port Orchard. The city is divided by the Port Washington Narrows, a strait spanned by two bridges. The part of the city to the north and east of the narrows is referred to as East Bremerton. The part of the city that is north and slightly west of Downtown Bremerton and south and slightly west of Silverdale is referred to as West Bremerton. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 67.5 square kilometers. 58.7 square kilometers of it is land and 8.8 square kilometers of it is water.
Bremerton is divided among three state legislative districts in Kitsap County. Bremerton was platted by German immigrant-turned-Seattle entrepreneur William Bremer in 1891. Three years earlier, a U.S. Navy commission determined that Point Turner, between the protected waters of Sinclair and Dyes inlets, would be the best site in the Pacific Northwest on which to establish a shipyard. Recognizing the large number of workers such a facility would employ, Bremer and his business partner, Henry Hensel, purchased the then-undeveloped land near Point Turner. In April 1891, Bremer sold 190 acres to the Navy and this land became part of the initial footprint of the Puget Sound Navy Yard.

In the city the population was spread out with 24.5 percent under the age of 18, 15.5 percent from 18 to 24, 30.3 percent from 25 to 44, 17.2 percent from 45 to 64, and 12.5 percent who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 31 years. For every 100 females there were 103.7 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 103.7 males. As it is often regarded as among the most beautiful parts of United States, it is one of the most visited places amongst the most die-hard travelers the world over.
