Chandlery

Shops that primarily deal in equipment and related supplies for ships or boats are known as Boat Chandlery shops. We list many of the best dealers that specialise in boat chandlery products. Many of these types of shop are located near the waterfront in marinas, on main rivers or in other seafront locations. Like all other suppliers many items are in stock ready to purchase, but many boat related items need to be custom manufactured to the customers specifications. This high-level of service comes with the condition of short time spans to deliver customised special orders. All the services of a ship chandler are urgent and even a slight delay can prove to be expensive, so choosing the most professional suppliers in this field is extremely important.

Some of the products offered by our suppliers fall in the below categories:
Electrical Products – This category of products include interior and exterior lights, aerials, circuit protection, batteries, solar power, inverters, leads, and generators.
