Atlantic Sail Traders

Does anyone have any experience with Atlantic Sail Traders? I'm looking at either a new sail or a very good used sail. I'd be interested in hearing of any experiences with them. thanks Jim L

I've used them twice and had no problems either time.
My experiences were good. The customer service was very helpful and pleasant.

Thumbs up shopping at Atlantic Sail Traders

I purchased 2 sails with Atlantic Sail Traders, good sails, helpful service and fast shipping. I was on the point to purchase a third one but they don't have what I need right now, do you know some others Used Sail Traders ? Thanks

No, but I did just buy a used main at Bacon Sails. Sail is next to new at 1/3 the price of a new one. Very happy with them.

Have been to Atlantic a few times while in Sarasota, and have ordered from them online. All experiences were good.

There are lots of them on the web - just key in "used sails" in your search.

I keep a number of them bookmarked and check them regularly - to get the best when buying used you have to buy when they are available, not wait until you need them.

Atlantic
Bacons
Minneys
Second Wind
Sail Exchange
Sail Warehouse
Pineapple
Masthead

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Atlantic Sail Traders is a good business and their chief sail maker was formerly the principal sail maker for Ullman Sails Florida. He knows his business and does very good work. He built our asymmetrical spinnaker and our 135 (while at Ullman) and we have been very pleased with both.

FWIW...

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

It's been a great many years and another boat ago, but my experience with them was stellar. I'd consider them again without hesitation.
