Masthead was founded in 1992 by fellow sailors Leslie Fisher, Jeff Linton and Paul Silvernail.

Masthead has been an industry leader as a used sail brokerage since 1992; utilizing our marine connections to become one of the largest used sail shops in North America. With over 16,000 sails sold, we have been proudly serving the sailing community for over 30 years. We provide a valuable service to sailors as a source to sell or exchange sails no longer needed as well as access to 1000’s of used & new sails in inventory, both cruising and racing sails in stock and ready to ship.  Masthead’s experienced staff of sailors and sailmakers is ready to assist boat owners find the right fit to meet your needs or discuss a custom new sail if that option is right for you. 

Our full service sail loft is here to service your existing sail repair needs or modify an in-stock used sail to match your dimensions.

At our original location in St. Petersburg, Florida, we represented Catalina Yachts, RS Sailboats and Com-Pac Yachts as tailorable sailboat specialists.  With a move to Sarasota, Florida in 2024 comes and change in ownership and services.  At our new location, we offer our large inventory of used sails, a large full service sail loft, sailing store with hardware and cordage, rigging, custom canvas and custom-built new sails on site. Our Sarasota location is a dealer of Sunfish/Laser with new boats and parts in stock. Also check out our web site for marine clearance items and used boat sales.
