Welcome to the East Coast Sailboats Blog!

Hello and welcome to the East Coast Sailboats Blog! Here you can stay up to date on everything that is happening with the East Coast Sailboats’ brands as well as learn about East Coast Sailboats’ sales, demos, and shows.

Before we get to the Blog topics, here’s a bit of info about East Coast Sailboats:

At East Coast Sailboats we are passionate about sailing, and we are committed to finding the perfect sailboat for our customer. To this end, we carry a wide variety of sailboats to meet the demands of all types of sailors. Whether you are a seasoned racer looking for speed or a novice sailor looking for a fun easy sailboat, we will find the right boat for you. We don’t push specific brands; instead, we will get to know our customers needs so that we can put them in the perfect boat for. The bottom line is that we love sailing and are passionate about sharing and spreading the joy that we feel when we are on the water.

We carry a number of brands including Topper/Topaz, RS Sailing, Nacra Catamarans, Hobie, Melges, Open Bic (Open Skiff), World Wide Sailor and more. We stock a large inventory of boats at our warehouse in North Carolina for demos and quick distribution. Feel free to come check us out if you are in the area. We’d be stoked to go sailing with you!

Children’s Summer Sailing Camps and Adult Private Sailing Lesson:

In addition to sailboat sales we are happy to offer sailing lessons and camps on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We offer introductory summer sailing camps for children as young as eight years old as well as U.S. Sailing camps levels 1 & 2. For adults interested in learning to sail or refining their sailing skills we provide private sailing lessons that are tailored to the individual sailor’s wants and needs. Our sailing camps are based out of the Southern Shores Marina in Southern Shores, North Carolina and Nor’Banks Sailing and Watersports in Duck, North Carolina.

Hobie Standup Paddleboards, Surf SUPs, and Mirage-Drive Kayaks and Boards:


While sailing is our first passion, we love being on the water period…even when there is no wind. To maximize our time on the water we’ve taken to stand-up paddling and stand-up paddle surfing when there isn’t enough wind to sail. To facilitate this, East Coast Sailboats carries the Hobie line of stand-up paddle boards, Hobie mirage-drive kayaks (the Hobie Adventure Island and Hobie Tandem Island), and the Hobie mirage-drive board (the Hobie Eclipse.) Stop by if you are near the Outer Banks to demo one (or more) of these products!

East Coast Sailboats’ Boat Show Booth:

You can find the East Coast Sailboats’ booth at boat shows all over the East Coast. We will be kicking off our 2020 Boat Show season at the Virginia Beach Mid Atlantic Sport & Boat Show February 7th-9th, 2020. At the Virginia Beach Mid-Atlantic Sports & Boat Show “the latest models in boats, sailboats, personal watercraft and new marine technology / accessories will be on display. No matter what type of boat, accessory, or new gear you’re looking for, you will have plenty to choose from at the Mid Atlantic Sports & Boat Show.”
