Our friends at North Sails are moving their Milford, CT manufacturing, sales, and service loft to Steelpointe Harbor in Bridgeport, CT.
Located in the former Derecktor Shipyards facility just off Interstate 95 on Seaview Avenue, the 35,000 square foot flagship loft will open on July 1, 2021, bringing several global departments under one roof and serving as the global headquarters for North Technology Group. This location puts North Sails at the heart of an exciting nautical destination that features the Bridgeport Harbor Marina, a 220-slip deepwater marina, waterside retail, and dining, all in a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood.
“Our entire North Sails team is looking forward to opening our loft doors in Bridgeport,” said North Technology Group Executive Chairman Tom Whidden. “We’re excited to be a part of a growing waterfront community that has a strong marine industry heritage. Local and out-of-town cruisers and racers will benefit from having a new waterfront service loft on the East Coast. This is a great move for North Sails.”
Ideally positioned on Long Island Sound, Local sailors will enjoy the easy access and customer-friendly sail pick-up and drop-off, as well as an extensive list of services; sail storage, washing, evaluations, measurement, new sail quotes, and more. The loft will also be an East Coast distribution hub for North Actionsports, the kiteboard and windsurf division of North Technology Group.
As longtime members of the Connecticut and Long Island sailing communities, the North Sails team is excited to welcome clients, both new and existing, to the space at Bridgeport Harbor Marina Harbor. For more information, visit northsails.com ■
