For over 45 years, Schaefer Marine has led the way in innovative and reliable sailboat and marine hardware. They pride themselves 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 they have had several exciting developments at Schaefer. This spring, the schooner “Athos” sailed with her custom mast tracks developed and manufactured by Schaefer Marine developed through the performance of Schaefer Marine 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 they keep tabs on Athos. Marine Schaefer have just introduced an 8” Carbon Fiber Lock in winch handle. This handle weighs ½ pound! These will be available through our dealers and save a bit more weight for those of you looking for every advantage.
