NORTH SAILS AT NEWPORT SHIPYARD

New East Coast Sales Office Opens May 1 In Response To Growing Demand

North Sails Newport Ship Yard

North Sails is pleased to announce the opening of a new sales office in Newport, Rhode Island. Located in the heart of the vibrant Newport Shipyard, the team believes that this location will give Grand Prix, One Design, Multihull, Cruising and Superyacht customers an easy and bespoke solution for all their sailmaking needs.

The new office will work alongside the expansive North sales and service center only 15-minutes away in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. As Newport Harbor and the surrounding area are hosting even more major events, many of which are based from the Shipyard, the new office allows clients easier access to a North Sails expert.  They can also drop sails off, have them repaired and pick them up without ever leaving the Shipyard. Mike Toppa, a North Sails Superyacht specialist will head up the team. A two time America’s Cup winner, Toppa combines his vast knowledge of the industry, the players, and the products available across a broad spectrum of the market making him the perfect fit for this new venture.

Mike Toppa commented: “This office in the Newport Shipyard will be an advantage for our clients. It makes so much sense to enable them to drop in to talk about their needs and their sails in a place that is so easily accessible. We believe a drop-off and pick up point here eliminates a time-consuming step and makes it easier for our customers, and gives them more time to enjoy their sailing while in Newport. It’s hugely beneficial to be at the heart of where our clients are, to ensure that we continue to understand what they need, both now and also for the future.”

Ken Read, President of North Sails, added: “Newport is a dynamic sailing hub and where our global head office is also based. It is the right time to be offering this sort of service to our clients, with so much going on this summer in Newport, including the 12 Metre Worlds, the New York Yacht Club 175th Anniversary Regatta and so many other world-class events. Our vision as a company has always been to pair industry-leading products with unmatched client support. The Shipyard office reaffirms our commitment to provide the best possible service to all types of sailors. We look forward to seeing old and new customers, and also friends and colleagues over the coming months.”
