A very big thank you to our team of sponsors who have supported us through discounts, technical guidance, and in some cases even free gear to help us sail around the world! We are so grateful to have your continued support!
We seek out sponsors who are experts in their field and who have phenomenal products, services, and customer support. We only work with sponsors who we would buy gear and/or services from regardless of sponsorship. We invest a lot of time and energy into researching products and services for Atticus. In exchange for sponsorship, we offer an honest review of services rendered. The companies below are AWESOME and we stand behind them 100%, not because they gave us a discount, but because their products are top notch. We are lucky to work with them! If you would like to have us review a product for your company, check out our Press Kit and shoot us an email!
We absolutely LOVE sailrite. Where to begin? Their learning to sew video series made jumping into sewing with zero prior knowledge fun and easy! They also care very deeply about their online community, and consistently add new how-to videos and blog posts for any boat project you can think of. All of their products are consistently high quality, and finding what you need online is so easy with their awesome website. As for the machine itself, The LSZ-1 is like my macbook pro—intuitive, powerful, and glitch-free! I have been able to completely refit our canvas projects and start a little side repair business with this powerful machine on my side! Perhaps most importantly, Sailrite is stock full of sincerely helpful, patient, and passionate people. I actually have their contact number on speed dial. I love speaking with their project technicians (many of whom own sailboats), who always make time for even my most silly questions. I’m their biggest fan!
If you’re looking for the most comfortable marine mattress, definitely give Sleep on Latex a try! We have been through memory foam and dryfast foam options for our V-berth in the past, but both had pitfalls which ended up robbing us of many nights of good sleep! Latex is naturally antimicrobial, very dense, and far more breathable than memory foam. Most importantly, it is SUPER comfortable! It’s firm, but we still get that “sink in feeling” which a polyurethane foam just can’t offer. Sleep on Latex has an amazing support team who spent hours on the phone with me talking foam tech, and they offer FREE shipping and FREE returns. They sell toppers, mattresses and pillows. We purchased two Cal-King 3” toppers (one firm, and one soft) to DIY a 6” V-berth mattress. We LOVE it!
Buying sails was a HUGE deal for us as soon-to-be cruisers — it signified the completion of a physically and emotionally strenuous three year refit. We entrusted our sail construction to Super Sailmakers and have been very happy with our decision. From the onset, their sail quote was the most personal, speedy, and informative that we received from many companies (large and small). They offered very personal service through the design stage, even sending Bob, a sail designer, to our boat to spend time with us to discuss our options and confirm measurements. We have purchased 5 sails from Super Sailmakers and have been happy with their durability and performance! We did experience a delay in one of our orders around the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, so take that into account if you have a strict timeline. Our other orders have been speedy and Bob even sent us some dacron and insignia patches for a quick repair we needed free of charge via overnight mail!
