Important - Sales to the European Union
Based in the United Kingdom, Southeast Sailboats ships world class control line systems and other parts all over the world. Whilst many countries are used to tax free prices and paying taxes/handling fees on arrival in their country, for our many and valued customers in the European Union, this is something new as a result of BREXIT, and may not be fully understood.
Whilst our export pricing is free of UK VAT, you will probably be liable for taxes/duties/handling charges when your package reaches your country. This will vary from country to country and also be dependent on order value. We are also aware of delays getting packages through some countries postal systems. If you have any concerns regarding this please contact us before ordering.

What our Customers Say
Used new outhaul & Cunningham this afternoon for first time - both were perfect - thanks. The 'double-puller' outhaul is by far the best yet.
Felinheli, N Wales
Quite simply the most innovative and high quality Laser control lines I’ve ever seen. Great advice and service too from Max.
Laser sailor, UK
Very good products for the laser, and a lot of nice control line solutions with good splicing.
I love all your products. You guys are the best
Laser Fleet 10 Annapolis, MD USA
Once Max started building his kits, I stopped giving advice on rigging. Thanks to Max, there's now a standard for how Lasers should be rigged to optimize performance. Keep it up!
Olympic Laser Coach - Canada
Great service by south east sailboats. I made a mistake with my shipping address and Max helped me to fix it. Super thankful for the effort he put in!
Laser sailor, The Netherlands
Both my Lasers have a lot of Max’s stuff on them. The built-up systems are perfect and work really well – I don't think you could find anything better. There’s also a huge choice of line, blocks, designs/rigging options etc. The other ‘little’ items all work too and make sailing the boat easier and I’m happy everything is class legal. Thanks Max.

Hello Max..... Awesome service! I submitted this order on Monday, you shipped on Tuesday and I received today, Thursday. A welcomed surprise with racing on Saturday. Not to mention that the systems are superb.....the workmanship flawless. Makes me feel like an elite sailor with all Southeast systems rigging in the parking lot which has translated to a more competitive mindset, smoother transitions and thus better finishes on the race course. Much thanks for upping US Laser sailors game!
Masters Sailor, Boston, MA USA
This isn’t just a click and buy warehouse, they contacted me to explain the options available as I’d mistakenly ordered control lines all the same colour.
The Laser products are outstanding. Every detail has been thought through. You just know whatever you buy will work flawlessly.
Parent of youth sailor. San Francisco, USA
I ordered a downhaul system in 2018, and was so pleased with its elegance and ease of use that I soon ordered an upgrade for my outhaul. As it was a custom order to replace part of the system, Max gave me excellent advice on what the options were. Now that the older parts of the outhaul are wearing out, I have ordered a complete new quick release system. It is a joy to be able to rig the Laser so quickly and reliably, and I have received many compliments on these systems from other sailors far more experienced than I am.
I am using Max' vang and Cunningham system and love it. It is very easy to rig and well thought through. The materials (like ropes) Max is using are under constant review and one can be sure to get the best quality for the price. There are always new little things being invented that make our life easier. Keep the good work up.
Masters sailor, Hamburg, Germany
Max is so easy to work with and his products are great! He is very responsive in answering questions.
Masters sailor, Vienna, Va.
Always use Southeast Sailboats for ropes on my dinghies, won't think of going anywhere else, right kit for the right job on the boat, customer service is superb.
Laser Master, UK
Max’s controls have made sailing the Laser easier, I’ve been using his systems for 3 years and no matter what, I’m happy to accept any innovation of his and trust him fully. His outhaul system is the only system that I know works and consistently works. Max’s support has been key to me getting to where I am currently, his support and controls have allowed me to be consistent with my settings no matter where I am in the world.
Radial youth sailor, Truro, Cornwall/ Hong Kong
Apart from making great controls (kickers, outhauls etc) especially for the Laser, Southeast Sailboats also give great advice. And as Max Hunt attends and competes in many Laser events, if you live in the UK, you might be able to arrange to meet Max at an event, and get further rigging tips. Great kit and great service!
New Laser 4.7 sailor with multiple RS Tera titles and world champion medalist, United Kingdom
Max is a perfectionist - and it shows. His Laser kit is clever, efficient and clearly researched and tested to the nth degree. Even if it's just the cunningham and outhaul from his big, growing range, the investment will be well worthwhile. The overall service is great too.
Radial Masters sailor, Dublin, Ireland
What a great little company that provides beautiful, (yes beautiful), products especiall the rope kits. Personal service and great comm's. Really easy to use web site. Specialists in what they do and you can tell!

Laser master sailor, Norway
I have only quite recently found Southeast Sailboats and the things that stand out for me are the attention to detail in the products and how they are described, and the communications. Max is very quick to respond to queries about products or orders. Great company. Would definitely order again. Thanks.
Laser / ILCA, London UK
Great service from Max every time. The most important thing is that systems work, are very neat, and each small change and new idea so far was an improvement. Good website as well, easy to use, with useful advice from the people at the very top of our game.
Master sailor, United Kingdom
Really pleased with the outhaul, downhaul and kicker systems they have speeded up rigging and ease of adjusting sail trim. The quality and speed of the service is excellent.

Southeast Sailboats offers perfect equipment for the Laser, very good and reliable customer service!!
Masters sailor, Germany
If you want your Laser rig to "just work at its best" then I cannot recommend Southeast Sailboats and their equipment enough. The service is excellent plus you get all the help and advice you need from Max. I made my last order late on Sunday evening and it was delivered on Tuesday morning. Could not ask for more.
Laser Radial and Standard Sailor, United Kingdom
Totally satisfying experience start to finish. I ordered two sets of custom control lines. All was delivered perfectly as ordered. Sailing with this set-up is absolutely fantastic. Easy to rig, smooth running, low profile, clean. We couldn't be more satisfied. Max is a consummate pro.
Master Sailor, San Diego, CA USA
I was very pleased with the line and blocks i received from SE. Fast, efficient and helpful service i ordered from Canada and had no delivery problems. A great resource
213877 - a legendy, Calgary, Canada
I ordered several outhauls, downhauls and kickers for our club. I received several mails from Max containing detailed lists of options, making sure, that we received exactly what we required. The next day he built all our systems and the day after they arrived in Munich. This service is really awesome! And I also like the solutions. Especially the outhaul systems are the best I have seen so far. The only thing I am missing in the shop is a quick pin for the kicker.
It's a total pleasure rooming the Southeast Sailboats website and check out the super innovative control systems. Max seems to have a leg up on everyone else when it comes to offering the most recent and performant components. Just take the new Allen HL block that Southeast Sailboats was able to get specifically made for Lasers. What a huge difference from the stock solution!
Master sailor, Portland, USA
Max has looked into all the little details that make a Laser easier to rig and handle and faster to sail. Southeast Sailboats offers great service and products with an unprecedented love for clever and thoughtful details.
Masters sailor, Germany
This is an easy click and pay way to get the very best lines and components for your Laser controls. The splicing is perfect, and the lines supplied are the best of the best. I have the full kit from Southeast Sailboats. It's clean and efficient. Full vang set-up results in noticeably less friction. Shipping is easy, even if you are not in the UK, like me in Florida. Takes about a week to get your order.
