What we do...
Welcome to our online bookshop specializing in everything nautical. We feature exciting and dramatic narratives of survival on the high seas - or "Salty Stories", as we call them. But you will also find "How To"-books and videos on sailing, racing, powerboating and seamanship, plus cruising guides, historical books, and novels about the sea.
...and how we do it
We are associates of Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk, the world's largest online booksellers. From our pages, you have access to all their 3 million titles of books, CD's and videos. However, we have selected the best books and videos in boating related categories. So while everything is available through the advanced search function, the books presented on our pages are the ones that have received praise from the critics and readers. By following the links, you will be able to see what people have to say about this book, and even to offer your own opinion to future readers!
Discounts of up to 40%, and fast delivery!
Most books are offered with a substantial discount off the cover price. This quickly translates into real savings. Even if you need international shipping (not a problem!), you'll often find that the total price delivered to your mailbox is much less than what you would pay at your local bookshop. And chances are you'll get it much faster through our services.
You can have any book(s) and videos gift wrapped and delivered anywhere in the world, along with your own personal message! For the armchair sailor, there is no better gift than a riveting, salty read. And since our selection is based purely on quality and entertainment value, you can't go wrong!
Easy and secure online ordering and payment
Shopping is easy - just put the books and videos you want in the shopping cart. And through the Netscape Secure Commerce Server, you can safely pay by means of a credit card. However, if you prefer not to, you can also fax the card details, or pay by check.
We'd love to hear from you!
If you have questions or comments - or maybe a book or video to recommend that you don't find listed, never hesitate to send us anemail. And be sure to bookmark this page and come back from time to time, because we will keep growing!
