Chris Schramel

Chris Schramel didn’t start sailing until he was 18 years old, but it looked like fun, so he gave it a try. He sailed throughout college, and the excitement of the competition, the girls, and the adventure of it all got in his blood. In 1975, his passion became his career when he ran a small loft in Martha’s Vineyard.

Chris spent several years with Sobstad before joining the Quantum team as an affiliate loft. With all of Quantum’s resources and experts available to him, Chris not only provides the best service and products available, he also treats his customers as friends, investing his time and talents to help them get the most out of their sailing experiences.

A Flying Scot expert, Chris is also experienced in 5.5 Meter, Laser, 470, Snipe, V-15, Rhodes 19, and Tornado classes, as well as most of the popular offshore One Design and handicap boats.
