Sailmakers first hit the Dallas sailing scene January 1st,
1975. And what started out as a small custom sail loft has
evolved into one of North Texas' top rated active
Mariner Sailmakers branched out with a Windsurfing and
Sailing Accessory Store, and within one year added Hobie Cat
products to the growing sail shop. In
1990 Mariner Sails, Inc. became a separate company dedicated
to serving local sailors with high quality sailing equipment
and service, while Mariner Sailmakers continued to provide
high quality custom sails, repairs and canvas work, and is
currently the premier sail loft in North Texas.
(way before the Internet as we know it today!), Mariner
Sails started our Fly-by-Night direct delivery
service for customers who didn't have the support of a local
sailing or paddling shop. Just call 800-536-9463 and we'll
be happy to help you with your sailing and paddling needs.
If you don't live in the Dallas area, we strongly suggest
supporting your local dealer.
we started looking into kayaks, added them to our offerings
for 1998, and have expanded our paddling department ever
since, offering one of the widest ranges of recreational
paddling accessories in the area.
years of being happy roommates, Mariner Sails and Mariner Sailmakers are again one company. We will enjoy bringing the
resources of our entire staff in our efforts to service your
paddling and sailing needs.
Sails stocks and sells more windsurfing and Hobie Cat
equipment than anyone else in North Texas. And our staff
members are experienced sailors as well as recreational
paddlers, so you tap into well over 100 years of combined
"on-the-water" experience with every purchase.
