North Sails NEWS
North Sails service and canvas teams join sales team at 317 Chester Avenue in Eastport, Maryland.
North Sails is pleased to announce that their service and canvas departments on the Chesapeake Bay have relocated from Stevensville, MD to the same Eastport compound as the sales office at 317 Chester Avenue. The newly remodeled sail and canvas lofts encompass two full stories and are equipped to handle sail repairs for boats of all sizes.
“Having everything here in one place makes for a more capable organization, and means that we can serve our clients more efficiently,” said Jonathan Bartlett
Service Manager Jeff Todd and his team of experienced sailmakers pride themselves with quality workmanship that is completed in a timely and efficient manner. “Now is the ideal time to bring your sails in for year-end inspection so our team can identify areas of wear and tear before they become a bigger issue,” said Todd, who has been a sailmaker for more than three decades and is also a well-respected Chesapeake Bay area sailor. “A simple sail check can help protect your sail investment and help you get the most out of your on-the-water experience,” Todd said. The Chesapeake service department is open Monday-Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm or by appointment.
North Sails Canvas, managed by Rob Pennington, occupies the first floor of the building. With room to lay out products ranging in size from small one design covers to full winter covers for cruising boats, they are in an ideal spot to meet customer needs. “We are really happy to be back in Annapolis for the convenience of our customers and better proximity to yacht clubs and marinas,” Pennington said. “This relocation is a win-win for everyone.”
Jonathan Bartlett, Sales Manager for the Annapolis office is very eager for the group to get settled in. “Having everything here in one place makes for a more capable organization, and means that we can serve our clients more efficiently,” Bartlett said. “We have worked closely with our service and canvas team for many years. Having them in the building next door makes the customer experience seamless, which is very important to us,” Bartlett said.
