Cruising is not just a hobby or even a lifestyle. It is a life! The equipment that supports this “Life at Sea” must be reliable, efficient and affordable.
We have been living this life for the past 15 years. We have logged over 70,000 Nautical Miles from Newfoundland to the Caribbean and through the Great Lakes. We have met thousands of fellow cruisers and have researched hundreds of products, many of which were recommended by others. We have tested them in the real world and refined, re-designed or merely distribute the ones that we found worked best for us. Every product that we sell has been personally tested and approved and you can call us for directions, advise or even if you have found something that works better. We are available 7 days a week by e-mail or toll-free phone and promise never to leave you on hold!
We maintain substantial inventory so over 90% of all orders are shipped within 24 hours and products not in stock are generally direct-shipped from the manufacturer to save time and money.
Our prices are competitive with any other retailer; web-based, mail-order or store-front. If you find it cheaper elsewhere, chances are it’s not the same product. Please let us know. Ready to make your sailing more enjoyable? Then check out the rest of our site.
The products have been selected as a result of extensive testing and research. They provide, in our opinion, excellent value or what we call “cost effective equipment for life under sail”. We value input from our customers. If you find a better product, or better value, please let us know. We share your passion for the cruising lifestyle and want to make it as enjoyable and as affordable as we possibly can.
Product warranty will be handled by the individual manufacturer but we would like to be advised of any problems and to intervene on behalf of our customers. Your feedback becomes part of our evaluation process and is not just welcomed, it is encouraged.
