The sailing world is chock full of shorts. They range from super-techy to cotton Bermudas, but very few do what our Shipyard short is designed to do – deliver outstanding technical performance combined with classic good looks. Our new Nylon 66 yarn and innovative construction techniques shed water, dry quickly and move the way you move while features such as a zippered pocket and a multi-tool sheath will make everyone happy from the tactician to the bowman.
Nylon 66: Nylon 66® fabric is super-light and has a soft cotton-like feel — DWR coating provides water resistance.
The Shipyard shorts were designed to be your everyday shorts and to stand up to whatever you dish out and to look great no matter where you happen to find yourself.

I'm very happy with this purchase. They are very comfortable and very well constructed. Compared to Camet sailing shorts, which I also wear afloat, Atlantis' Shipyard Shorts are also suitable for wearing ashore; the "steel" colour looks great. Their length is good for tall people like myself. The fabric does not dry as quickly as the fabric which Camet uses, but it does repel water away nicely. Unlike Camet's sailing shorts, they don't have a second layer on the backside for sitting on non-skid decks, but that's why the Shipyard Short is more stylish-looking.

These are one of my more comfortable "every day" sailing shorts. Lightweight, fit perfectly and seem to be of quality construction. If they hold up to my abuse, I'll definitely be buying more!

These shorts are perfect for sailing. High quality construction and materials. Great utility features. One reccomendation, if you are between sizes, go with the smaller size.

Unfortunately the large was too big and the medium too small. I think te design is great, but unfortunately i had to give them away. Seems to be a design / sizing issue.

The shorts are a great style nonetheless, but the utility is what I love about the Shipyard's... the quality of the material and an array of pocket features makes this short the heat!!!
