Meet Hooper's: 

Hooper's Yachts is heading into her 36th year of business and brings to you nearly 45 years of sailing experience from certain members of our staff. We offer you expertise in all areas of sailing including cruising, racing and daysailing. Some of our staff members have cruised extensively on offshore salt water and great lakes passages , the Bahamas, Gulf, California and Hawaii, raced on more boats than we can count - both one-design and handicap club competition. We not only know how to sail, but we understand sailboat rigging, systems and maintenance. Our service department is extensive and often our competition, involved in sales, but not service, sends customers our way to get their boat worked on. We have outdoor and indoor boat lifts for bottom maintenance and repair, keel and rudder work or loading or offloading. Our 5 acre boatyard will accommodate the DIY boat owner, outdoor storage, service work and we have more room for displaying new and used sailboats than any of our local competition. We also can hang our sign on your boat where ever you keep it. It doesn't have to be in our boatyard. In addition we have a very well equipped store with all the supplies you need to outfit or maintain your vessel. We stock sailboat hardware such as HARKEN, SCHAEFER, SPINLOCK, RONSTAN, WICHARD, FORESPAR and more. We are an INTERLUX YACHT PAINT CENTER and a WEST EPOXY dealer. We also stock SAMSON CORDAGE and have a hydraulic swaging machine for your standing rigging and lifeline needs. We stock all the cleaning supplies offered by 3M, MEGUAIRS, STARBRIGHT and more, and we have all the maintenance material for the DIY such as sandpaper, paint supplies and fiberglass repair supplies. We stock ANCOR electrical fittings, HUBBELL, FURRION and MARINCO shore power. We have anchors, dock lines, electronics, heads, hoses, clamps, stainless fastners, trailer accessories, teak cleaners, sealers, varnishes, and the list goes on. If we don't stock what you need, we can get it. To put it briefly, we have experience, know how, understanding, supplies, service, transportation and are recognized for quality, fairness and smiles.
