ABOUT US . . . .
Launched in June of 1977 as CUTTYSARK OF BELLEVUE, our store was originally anchored on Main Street in Old Town Bellevue, Washington. In May of 2004, CUTTYSARK raised anchor and set sail for Pioneer Square, on the southwest edge of downtown Seattle. No longer in Bellevue, our name board was changed to CUTTYSARK NAUTICAL ANTIQUES.
During the last 34 years, thousands of fine marine antiques have been found, bought, restored and sold to avid collectors, boat owners and folks who just want the feel of the sea in their home or office.
The store also specializes in a selection of high quality, new, nautical items including lighting, clocks, ship models, lighthouse models, flags of the world and a wide range of collectibles. In addition, we proudly present prints and paintings by the leading maritime artists.
One of the few specialty stores of our kind in the country, our goal is to provide our customers with a great selection of rare and unique nautical items.
