"The World's Largest and Most Unique New & Used Marine Emporium"
Well, what can we say... There’s nowhere like it! You’ll have heard of us probably through word of mouth and curiosity will send you our way. Enter you will, and first thing you’ll notice (after the sizzling temperatures and dust) is the serious stimulation to your senses. Piles of nautical treasure and random knick-knacks pave your path of discovery. The employees are a bit unconventional and quirky--a motley crew but they make you feel at home. Not your typical store rules, sometimes they offer you a friendly cold beverage (free of course) just because it's been a long day and they want to go home at 6 sharp--work/life balance ya know. Second thing they'll offer is some bug spray because there's a mosquito or two roaming about. "They're not really trying to be unique ... they just can't help it." Amidst the heaps of random fun junk for sale, it’s actually pretty exciting! They have it all! From the old discontinued stuff that can’t be found at the clean air-conditioned chains to the newest marine novelties! Eyes light up if we can have a bit of fun helping you solve some boat related problem that we've had in the past or heard resolved from another customer. If we don’t have what you seek, have just a little patience and we can and will find it for ya! And with prices that’ll keep you coming back for more! We’ve certainly earned our title: "It's not just a store, it's an adventure.
Sailorman is world renowned 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 its current location. 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.
Sailorman or Boaterman? Don't let the name fool you! Sailorman has an extensive selection for just about any boat:
While we specialize in hard-to-find parts, marine surplus, scratch-n-dent & used marine merchandise, you will also find a complete selection of new boating supplies at competitive prices.
Buy, Sell, Trade & Consign! At Sailorman, you can buy, sell, trade or consign marine gear. Re-outfitting a boat? Have a garage full of marine gear? Want to swap a boat part or two? At Sailorman you can turn your marine gear into cash! More information on selling, consigning or trading…
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.

What Our CUSTOMERS Are Saying
"Great store with lots of second hand boating supplies as well as new stuff. The staff are great. They have what most flashy places don't: character. It is more like an antiques store in the way that you can walk around and find all sorts of things you won't expect."
"It's actually magical going here. Boat heaven. Lots of used stuff. Unique, and hard-to-find items. Some of the less reusable items like rope and chain are new. Staff are very friendly and willing to chat." --Google reviews
