The Mariner is a 19 foot laminated fiberglass sloop first manufactured by George O'Day in 1963, and currently produced by Stuart Marine. Over 4,000 boats have been constructed. The US Mariner Class Association was founded in 1966 to:

                              * Keep the boat safe.
                              * Encourage its use as a family boat
                              * Maintain the Mariner as an economical one design Class.

     The Association remains very active with 8 Fleet Captains. Local sailing activities are coordinated by the Fleet Captains and include cruising and racing. Additionally we have 6 geographic area contacts that are committed to growing their fleets. The National Championship Regatta is held annually and provides an opportunity for members to test their racing skills and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow Mariner sailors.

New members are always welcome.

      The association publishes a newsletter, appropriately named Notice To Mariners, which is the official publication of the association. Through the newsletter, our forums and the plethora of information on the website, members can learn from highly experienced Mariner owners about maintaining, tuning, cruising, and racing a Mariner. We hope that you enjoy your visit to our web site and that you will soon enjoy the many benefits of Membership.
