    Sailorman offers some pretty darn good deals on various items of fishing, boating and marine equipment. They buy up discontinued, overstocked and used items then retail them at reduced prices. However, as a practical matter is a good idea to know in advance what the prices of any items are in advance. Every now and then I've found equal or equivalent items at West Marine on discount at the same or less than Sailorman, but not often.

    Here's an example of a bargain I got. I wanted a good fishing real and custom quality fishing pole. I found what I was looking for, being the reel and pole combined for $475.00. Later, checking around I found the same reel, sold alone, for $520.00 and the pole for $340.00. So, I scored a $385.00 savings; not bad!

    One of the better things about Sailorman that I have found, and which keeps me coming back is that their staff is not only customer friendly but knowledgeable as well. Though I've been around boats all my life, I've found myself depending upon their knowledge upon several occasions.

    Here are a couple tips:

    1. If you are buying a big ticket item such as a windless or the like, don't hesitate to make an offer, as they are usually willing to bargain on bigger ticket items.

    Five Stars, because for what they are, there aren't any better in the area.

    Way cool place!
    I was overdressed from Ft Lauderdale boat show and didnt get a hello! ( I was in store for an hour)
    If I had just crawled out of the bilge and came in with the used part they would've loved me!!
    Never judge a  man by what he is wearing!
    I looked like a yacht owner but I'm really at bilge rat!
    I did see some excellent service given to others!

    This is truly a great place.  The large inventory of new, used, and -- in some cases -- out of production items is wonderful.  I spent quite some time here just making myself familiar with the store.  While you CAN find the items cheaper online, they are not the much more expensive at the store, there is no shipping and handling, and you have the pieces immediately.

    I will definitely be returning.

    If you own a power boat or even better a sail boat this is the place for used inexpensive stuff. The staff is very friendly and will bargain on the price. This place is like the MECCA for sail boaters.

Established in 1985

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 current location, an over 10,000 square foot warehouse, in 1982. 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.

Meet the Business Owner: Chuck F.

Captain of the crew for over 27 years, Chuck is well versed in both power & sailboats.  He's known locally & abroad for his wit and welcoming personality.
