West Marine is one of those Great American Success Stories that we all dream about. The company was founded in 1968 by Randy Repass in Sunnyvale, California with the name West Coast Ropes. Randy started by selling nylon rope from his garage.
West Marine now operates a chain of boating supply and fishing retail stores, with an estimated 300 stores in North America.
In 1978 West Marine established a wholesale division called Port Supply and in 1991, the first West Marine stores opened on the East Coast of the United States in Miami and Annapolis and in 1993 the company went public on NASDAQ. West Marine currently provides over 100,000 products online, in stores, and via mail-order catalog. In July of 2008, West Marine opened its first franchise store in Istanbul, Turkey.
