It looks like Ares has totally dropped this game right as I am getting into it. Got the starter set and had an absolute blast! I have 10 ships in a cart ready to ship, but only the 4 ship mats the starter set provides. I am hoping for alot more mats to allow for 4+ players but they are completely sold out. Does anyone know if a pdf file of the mat exists to print out and put on cardboard? Or any sort of recent response from Ares on reprints?

You know you could simply go to Joann Fabrics and get two yards of textured blue fabric for a fraction of the cost and it stores better.

I believe he is talking about these and not the sea mats.

Sadly now the only way to get ship mats is to buy another core set.
Ares have said they will print new items that will be available in summer 2018.
I still can’t see that confirmed in their web page :-(
Hopefully this will change.

When did they start including mats with the core (Starter Sets)? I check the website and does not list them as part of the Starter Set

I believe we are talking about following item:
http://www.aresgames.eu/games/sails-of-glory-line/sails-of-g...

If so there are 4 in the starter set so you may play the 4 ships at the same time. But if you want to play more than 4 ships at the same time you need more ship mats.

Correct. I was hoping to find a way to generate the ships mats used to track actions and such without having to buy a whole new starter set.

I belive you may use this file from Fred:
https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/115024/sgn-statistics-shi...

Here you may make Your own ship mats and print out.

One possible way to solve your problem until new ship mats are available is to scan one of your ship mats. Print out and Then cut it out with a scissor.
To make it more solid glue the sheet on some thicker cardboard.

I also just discovered this game. Hopefully not too late.

It appears the reprint of ship mats is scheduled for July 2018:
