Hardy Peters Established East Coast Sailboats in January of 2016 with the goal of becoming the East coast leading sailboat center.

Re-discovering sailing in his mid 40’s, he has not stopped promoting the sport since moving to the Outer Banks of NC in 2011. Hardy has worked hard to promote the sport of sailing as well as promoting sailing educating to both youth and adults.
