The Mariner is a 19-foot fiberglass sloop first manufactured by George O'Day in 1963, and currently produced by Stuart Marine. Over 4,000 boats have been constructed and can be found all over the country and even internationally. The object of the Mariner Class Association, founded in 1966, is to encourage and promote the use of the Mariner as an economical daysailer, racer and cruiser; to keep the boat safe; to develop Mariner Class racing under uniform rules with Fleet regattas and an annual National Championship and to maintain the one-design features of the Mariner as originally intended by the Designer; to develop and support family sailing opportunities with regional cruising events and an annual Mariner Rendezvous.
New members are always welcome.
The Association publishes a newsletter, appropriately named Notice To Mariners, which is sent electronically to all members about four times a year. Through the newsletter, our forums and the plethora of information on the website, members can learn from highly experienced Mariner owners about maintaining, tuning, restoring, 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.
