Barton Marine is expanding in the USA with the launch of Barton US LLC. Well respected across the globe for its comprehensive range of sailboat hardware, made by sailors for sailors, the new dedicated local US presence will hugely boost service levels and supply efficiency for US boaters across the continent.

Barton gear has been available in the USA for decades and can be found in outfitters such as Defender and CWR, but the expansion enables the full catalogue of over 1800 hardware products to fill the gap in the US market for great value and performance from a high quality range able to handle every task on board. From bow to stern and mast head to keel, dinghy racers up to 50ft cruisers, Barton US has boater's needs covered. Equipment includes the Barton block range, recently upgraded to be more compact, lighter and have a new contemporary sleek styling. Barton's classic wooden blocks are gaining popularity among classic boat owners following their launch at the Wooden Boat Show in Mystic MA. Track and car systems compliment the range along with lighter weight composite winches and the ever-popular Barton Wincher, which makes traditional winches self-tailing. These form just part of the vast array of Barton onboard gear.

Barton US incorporated its own US operation in 2020 with distribution based in Hampton, Virginia. Having partnered with the established East Coast marine team at Atlantic Marketing Co. to support sales, US outfitters, riggers and yards will experience a knowledgeable, trusted and friendly approach to the trade. Further similar sales partnerships for the West Coast and Great Lakes will be announced soon.

Barton Marine CEO Suzanne Blaustone said, "Boating is such an important pastime and passion in the US and we believe our range is a perfect fit for the needs of the modern boat owner. As a global supplier, now is the right time to up our game in the US and supply the market directly with our full catalogue. Boaters don't need to mix and match brands to fit out their boats, knowing that Barton hardware has been designed by sailors, tested by sailors and manufactured by sailors in our own factory in England. It's an exciting time for Barton and we are keen to meet our new US customers."

Brandon Flack from Atlantic Marketing Co. said, "Sailing is more than just boating, it's a passion. Sailors want the very best tools for the task at hand and of course they also want value for their dollars. Barton offers unique solutions for great value that we know will resonate with the consumers buying choices as they discover more about this established global brand. Being part of the re-launch in the US will be a lot of fun for our team, and we look forward to sharing this story with our accounts."
