All about us!
     The Ship's Store & Rigging is a true marine chandlery and has been in business since 1975. It is owned and operated by Nick DeRosa, a lifelong Rhode Island resident and boater.  The staff have been at the store on the average of 15 years and have dedicated much of their working careers to the marine industry. They are professionals and know their business.
     Our main store is located right on Narragansett Bay at the East Passage Yachting Center in Portsmouth, RI. One of Southern New England's largest marinas. We have outfitted most every major racing yacht in the East Coast. We have a tremendous reputation for knowing where to find the most difficult parts for just about any boat made. Our extensive rigging and consignment shop are worth the visit.

   For the last few years we have also had a store in downtown Newport, RI. We are located on a public dinghy dock on historic Bowen’s Wharf. Here we offer in-harbor rigging services via our store boat. We have the same prices as our main store and offer the same great service. Our distributors deliver daily to both locations. 
During the season both stores are open 7 days a week. Check our home page for Summer and Winter hours at both locations.  During the winter our Newport location closes but our Portsmouth store remains open 7 days. 

     The Ship's Store & Rigging has been awarded the status of a Preferred Yacht Paint Center by AKZO Nobel, the makers of Interlux Yacht Paint and Finishes. We have extensive knowledge of marine painting applications and have been known for this and our low prices for many years.
   Please shop locally for your marine products and support your local marine chandlery. We are and have been at the center of the marine business for many years and in many ways are the heartblood of this industry.   Online and big box chain retailers cannot offer the service and knowledge we do, and we strive to match prices.  A true old fashioned marine chandlery offers much more and at competitive prices. Come and visit us and you will see the value that our shore side facilities offer.  Please shop us first or feel free to have us review match pricing for you.
Support your local Marine Chandlery. We are the heartblood of this great sport!  The Ship's Store & Rigging is one of the last and largest independently owned and operated marine stores in Rhode Island.
