A-1 Sailboats

Adventures

A-1 Sailboats was founded in June of 1972 when Cap't Jim decided to follow his heart and abandon a promising career as a federal employee for the risks and rewards of self-employment. The first seven years as Brandywine Trail and Sail, at the intersection of Rt. 5 and 301, in Brandywine, MD; and then as A-1 Sailboats in Mayo, MD.

Along the way A-1 has been a dealership for Sunfish, Laser, Snark, Seafarer, Newport, Windjammer, Windrose, American Fiberglass, Continental and Galaxy powerboats, John Dory, Lancer, Almand 31, Cabo Rico 38, Hunter, and MacGregor to name a few. Many of these manufacturers foundered on the shoals of the recession in '81-'82. Others faded along with the waning popularity of older designs. A-1 Sailboats has sold over 1000 new and used boats of all descriptions.

In late 2012 A-1 Sailboats officially closed its doors after 40 years of providing fun and excellent service to hundreds of new and existing sailors all around the Chesapeake and beyond.

For used MacGregors contact Greg at GBS, a broker with access to many of the boats that A-1 originally sold, along with many other sailboats of various sizes.
