Our first store, on Nantucket, opened in 1995, and has been providing locals and visitors with the necessary clothing and gear needed for the dynamic island environment that we have on Nantucket. In 2015 we expanded to the beautiful “Port City” of Newburyport, MA on the Merrimack River, and the reception has been wonderful.

Our name, “The Haul Over” refers to an area of beach on the north side of Nantucket Island. From the early 1800s until the mid 1900s, local fishermen would pull their boats out of the harbor and literally “haul” them “over” this narrow beach, giving them easier access to the more fertile fishing grounds to the east and south of the island. In time, this beach became known as the “Haul Over.”
