About Us

Welcome to Nautical Specialties. We’re a multi-faceted business catering to the marine industry. First, let’s introduce you to our fabrication side of the business. The Nautical Specialties Custom Canvas & Upholstery fabrication shop is located in Sandusky, Ohio. Our fabrication shop excels in producing the highest quality, custom designed canvas & upholstery for your boating pleasure. Please visit our canvas & upholstery shop page to learn more on why we consider ourselves the premier canvas shop in town.

Nautical Specialties also offers the only USCG Authorized Captains Licensing Center in Sandusky. We are a full service training and licensing center. After you complete our course, you’ll have the proper certification to get your Merchant Mariner License from the USCG. Once again, please visit our Captains License page to learn more details.

Nautical Specialties also has the ability to customize your boat in a variety of other ways. Whether you want an above and/or below water LED lighting system, an updated navigation system, a stereo upgrade, bow and/ or stern thrusters, we can and have done it all. See our custom boat services page to see some of our past projects. Don’t be afraid to ask for some customization you might not see in the pictures. We’ve probably already done it and can fulfill your vision.

Why do we have three different sets of skills and abilities? Well, we’re called Nautical Specialties for a reason. We love boats. We love fellow boaters, the lifestyle, and being on the water. So why not provide all of our skills and talents accumulated throughout the years to our customers? So, we did… and our customers continuously thank us for it.

We’ll bring our expertise to you by servicing the following areas: Sandusky, Ohio, Catawba Island, Ohio & Huron, Ohio. We’ll also travel to other areas along the Lake Erie shoreline.
