It all boils down to our business model. Hyde Sails Direct partners with Hyde Sails International, but we operate as a separate entity. Our mission is to deliver Hyde's renowned quality at internet prices. We don't have to pay sail consultants who measure your boat. Instead of a paid repair staff, we have a network of affiliated, full service U.S lofts. We don't have a design staff, office staff, or a shipping department. All of that is provided by Hyde Sails International. We don't pay rent for loft space on the waterfront, a huge savings. We advertise only via the Internet—no expensive booths at boat shows, no big ads in the glossy sailing magazines.
Our unique situation allows us to be a sail loft within a sail loft, and the money saved is passed directly on to you. Hyde quality at competitive prices—and we give you our best price the first time.
