Spring Update

Ahoy Yachtsmen-Winter, what there was of it, seems to be over. The daffodils are up and the trees are budding. Mid-March is when Nauti Nell's usually opens full time for the season and this year will be no different. On March 20 Nauti Nell's will be open Mon., Wed.-Sat. 10-5 and Sun. 11-4- closed Tuesdays. Over the winter we have received many new consignment items. We have 4 nice kayaks of various types for your spring and summer fun. They won't last long. We have many maintenance and clean-up products on the shelves to get your boat looking it's best for the yachting season. New gift items arrive daily. Nell and Jeanette look forward to seeing you soon and helping you find exactly what you need. Happy Spring!!


Our website is being revamped and, for the next few weeks, the content will be changing and not accurate. When the update is complete, we will post a notice that content is current and correct. Sorry for the inconvenience. If you have any questions, call the store. We will reply promptly to any messages left. Please note, Wildthings, our supplier of lovely sterling jewelry, has gone out of business. I will be searching for a new supplier to fill that category. Also, many of the consignment items shown on the website have been sold, but they are representative of consignment items we typically have. Please call if you have a specific need. Thanks.
