About Patriyachtic:
Patriyachtic is a new (nine-months old!) company that sells clothing, gifts, and gear for people who love boats and who love the water.  If you’re familiar with the brands Salt Life, Vineyard Vines, or Simply Southern, you’ll probably understand a bit about our target market.  We need your help to capture the joy of being on the water with the loyalty and spirit of American patriotism.  Most boaters are very, very patriotic – and we’ve taken Patriotic + Yacht and creating PatriYACHTic.  Grab your duffle bag and get ready to join a fun crew that’s setting a course for success!

Our Vision:
Patriyachtic will be the favorite lifestyle brand for people who love boats and who love America.
