Best West Marine Deals for Sailors - Black Friday Deal!
Thinking of shopping at West Marine this Black Friday. Tomorrow West Marine is rolling out some amazing deals for sailors at West Marine! What’s even better……. you don’t have to limit yourself to shopping on Friday, because these deals are happening for 5 days starting Today, November 22 and running until Monday November 26.
Last year at this time we were frantically preparing the boat to set sail on our live aboard journey. Weather didn’t fully cooperate, so we were able to grab some last minute gear on Black Friday before pushing off from the dock. We happened to stay at a Marina that was conveniently located just 5 minutes from a West Marine location so we took full advantage of some of their amazing Black Friday Deals. Here are 5 items we recommend snagging this Black Friday weekend.
5 items to consider this Black Friday at West Marine
1. West Marine Brand Handheld LED Spotlight
Although we didn’t grab this last year at their black Friday sale, we have had our West Marine Handheld LED spotlight for about a year now and it is probably one of our favorite items on board. Waterproof, durable and capable of three light settings this spotlight can be used in almost any situation requiring some extra light. In addition, the battery life is amazing! It is rechargeable, so no need to worry about replacing batteries, just takes a little DC charging every few weeks, if you use it often, or few months if you use it less frequently. Honestly people this is one of THE best lights we have on the boat! It is great for any number of things including arriving and or anchoring at night, cleaning and inspecting bilge compartments, or illuminating the water at night in your dinghy to name a few. At 1300 lumens at its brightest, it really does an amazing job illuminating any surface or area that you may need, just be sure not to shine it in or near the captains eyes (especially at night!).
Originally $99.99, but you can grab it for up to $40 off on Black Friday! So worth it, you won’t be disappointed by the versatility of this light!
2. Offshore Automatic Inflatable Life Jacket (PFD)
Here is one item we did take advantage of on Black Friday! When we purchased our boat it came with two (very old and well used) mustang PFDs, both which needed replacement cartridges. So we just decided that we would keep those two as back up and invest in two new ones! We purchased two of the West Marine Offshore inflatable life jackets with harnesses. Fortunately we haven’t needed to use them yet, but they are comfortable, light weight and the built in D-rings allow for easy attachment to jack lines or other safety mechanisms while underway. Regularly 299.99 you can grab them for just $99.99 on Black Friday and they could potentially last the duration of your sailing career! Amazing!
3. BlackTip Stainless Steel Fishing Rod Holders
If you do any fishing while on board, and you use one or more rods, we highly recommend these rod holders found at West Marine. They are heavy duty and durable and can be hooked to pretty much any life line rail. We have them mounted at the stern of our catamaran and they get use on almost every sail that we make. In a year, they show no sign of wear and tear, and they securely hold the rods that we have on board. 40% off on Black Friday, might be worth grabbing a pair, we are thinking of grabbing some for our dinghy for when we do some dinghy trolling!
4. Kayak (and/ or other water toys)
A last minute, impulse buy, we purchased a West Marine brand Kayak. We weren’t really sure if we needed it or if we would really use it, but it was too good of a deal to pass up! The one thing we wish we would have done was buy 2 instead of just one, that way we could both kayak together. Now only one person can use it so it is solo kayak trips for now. Great quality, we have used it only a few times, but it gets strapped to the side rails and shows no signs of salt water wear and tear one year later. West Marine is offering 30% off of their store brand kayaks, but sales are based on what they have in stock in their stores. They also have some other amazing deals on water toys, and outdoor equipment.
A great deal too, you can grab ENU hammocks at West Marine for 25% off. We have owned several of these hammocks and love their versatility and compact nature. They are great for any kind of travel and can be rigged to pretty much anything. We don’t currently have one on board so we will definitely be snagging one of these for ourselves this Black Friday.
There are so many other great deals too…. check them out for yourself! I am sure there is something you sailing heart desires this holiday season and this might just be the time to get it!
If you are more of the early bird, West Marine is also offering 15% off site wide on Thanksgiving day, with the code SAVE15. Or if you forget head over on Cyber Monday and use the code CYBER10!
