For over 45 years, Schaefer Marine has led the way in innovative and reliable sailboat and marine hardware. Schaefer pride ourselves on having the toughest gear on the water that will always stand up to the rigors of the marine environment. During the past few months we have had several exciting developments at Schaefer. In 2014 spring, the schooner “Athos” sailed with her custom mast tracks developed and manufactured by Schaefer Marine developed through the performance of our in-boom furling systems. This incredible yacht has passed its sailing trials with flying colors and is due to sail the waters of the Mediterranean this summer. Look for more updates as we keep tabs on Athos. In January of 2011, Schaefer Marine became the US Distributor for Sea-Sure products and Hawke Marine products both from the United Kingdom.
Schaefer furlers have long been respected as the finest furlers on the market and that reputation continues intact. Schaefer's Boom Furling systems have made sailing easier for sailors around the world. Several hundred systems on the water have proven to be strong and easy to use. Schaefer continue to advance our hardware and block line. Did you know we X-Ray every investment cast piece of hardware to enter our shop? This is the “extra” step we go to ensuring your safety. In addition, our finishing process including the use of walnut shells enhances the final appearance of our hardware enhancing the look of your yacht.
