Ship’s Hatch began in 1973 with the refinishing and sale of authentic WWII Liberty Ship hatch covers. The hatch covers were transformed into tables, bars, desks, etc. That was many, many years ago. Now Ship’s Hatch is much different.
Though the ownership has not changed, the merchandise has changed dramatically over the years.
Ship’s Hatch is owned and operated by Mary Beth Cox with a great deal of help from a very competent staff. Located in Arlington, Virginia near The Pentagon, the store is open six days a week. We specialize in retirement and promotion gifts for all branches of the military. The store is conveniently located just steps away from the Crystal City metro stop, close to shopping, hotels and restaurants and within walking distance of The Pentagon. We offer unusual and unique military gifts using various military insignia. Of course we carry nautical decorations, ships’ clocks, barometers, lamps, lanterns, bookends and a variety of nautical antiques as well.
Ship’s Hatch custom embroiders U.S. Navy ship ball caps for any ship that ever sailed. That’s quite a statement since we’ve had about 16,000 ships in our history. Our embroidery capabilities are nothing short of spectacular. Guaranteed. And yes, we do guarantee everything we sell. Try us. You’ll like us!
If you have any questions at all, call or email me and I’ll be happy to try and help. Fair winds and following seas! firstname.lastname@example.org
