 storefront.jpgSailorman is world renound for its incredible inventory selection and one-of-a-kind personality. Dubbed in the 80's as "The world's largest and most unique new & used marine emporium", it is a must see stop for boaters everywhere.

Brief History

Englishman Cliff Hunt started selling secondhand marine parts from his hatchback in 1975. Over the next few years Sailorman grew from a garage to a small hole-in-the-wall to its 84 location, an over 10,000 square foot warehouse, in 1982.  In 2017, Sailorman upsized again moving 5 blocks south on Andrews to it's current location The current owner, Chuck Fitzgerald, purchased Sailorman in 1985. Now dubbed as "The World's Largest and Most Unique New and Used Marine Emporium", you can find just about anything NEW or USED for boats.

Catalog, Please?

If you have ever been to our store, you can appreciate what an undertaking a catalog would be. In addition to the 10,000 items we stock on a regular basis, we have a constantly changing inventory of used, consignment, one-of-a-kind, and surplus marine parts (what really makes us different from those catalog places). While we try and have a representation of our inventory available for purchase at our ONLINE STORE, we truly do not do ourselves justice.
