the store and sunkenship

Incorporated in 1975 by Philip Osley, The Sunken Ship began as a little hole-in-the-wall dive shop selling sporting goods, fishing poles, scuba equipment, and whatever it could. [Things were much slower back then].  If a customer came in looking for something and the Sunken Ship didn't have it, it soon-after did, hence the shop's eclectic evolution.

Today The Sunken Ship is jam-packed with just about everything you can imagine: beach gear, clothing, flip-flops, Nantucket towels & blankets, Nantucket T-shirts, Nantucket hats, Nantucket sweatshirts, Nantucket rugby shirts, Nantucket stickers, Nantucket souvenirs, fishing equipment, tons of sporting goods, backpacks & luggage, skateboards, diving equipment, watches, paintball gun supplies and other fabulous weapons, shoes & boots, children's toys, video games, board games, - and a huge selection of randomness. If you don't see that something you've been looking for, just ask... we probably have it hiding somewhere!

Much of our best-selling Nantucket gear can be ordered from our online store. You can also order anything else we sell in our store that you might have liked but that we haven't put online yet via phone. We have so much stuff we couldn't possibly put it all on this website! 

Phone Orders are gladly taken year-round at the shop ----> 508-228-9226.
