Boat Maintenance Equipment

Regular maintenance of your boat is a great way to keep any expensive repair bills to a minimum - whether that be by a typical seasonal replacement of your boat anodes and antifouling paint, or a mid-season spruce up using some boat cleaning equipment. 

If you need to make any repairs to your boat, we've sourced a leading range of epoxy, fillers and glues that will not only help ensure a professional job is carried out, but won't break the bank too. Our most popular brand for this is West System epoxy. For any quick repairs, it's worth using marine tapes

Boat Paint, Antifoul & Varnishes

From surface preparation to the final top coat and everything in between, we have everything you need to get the job done. After preparing the surface, you'll want a primer, as this will ensure the boat paint or antifouling will adhere to the surface. If you need to reduce the viscosity of the paint, or just need a thinner mixture, our excellent range of thinners and degreasers will do just that.

Working with wood? Boat yacht varnishes are essential for protecting a wooden vessel from signs of wear, or breathing new life back into an older vessel. Varnishes are different to boat paint, as they do not contain any pigments - thus provide the surface with a hard coating that is often transparent.

Boat Ventilation

Lack of ventilation on board a boat can cause a whole host of problems, such as moisture build-up which can lead to mould and mildew which can not only be harmful to you, but for your boat too. Start by having sufficient ventilation on your boat, and if moisture does build up then we highly recommend a boat moisture absorber, or a boat dehumidifier. We also stock a superb range of tube heaters, which are ideal for reducing condensation and moisture build up.
