It all boils down to our business model. Hyde Sails Direct partners with Hyde Sails International, but we operate as a separate entity. Our mission is to deliver Hyde quality at internet prices. We don't have to pay sail consultants who measure your boat. Instead of a paid repair staff, we have a network of affiliated, full service U.S lofts. We do not have a design staff, office staff or a shipping department. All of that is provided by Hyde Sails International. We do not pay rent for loft space on the waterfront, which is a huge savings. We advertise only via the Internet. No expensive booths at boat shows, no big ads in the glossy sailing magazines.
We have a unique situation that allows us to be a sail loft within a sail loft, and the money saved is passed directly to you. And we give you our best price the first time. You get Hyde Quality at a very competitive price.
