The clear water, sheltered creeks and mild temperatures of the Fal estuary provide fine natural oyster beds, sustaining the last remaining oyster fisheries still dredging under sail and oar in Europe. Falmouth's maritime tradition is regularly celebrated through regattas and festivals.
The port is still working with big ships arriving for fuel or refit. We have a mixture of beaches and working docks giving Falmouth both work and tourist elements.
Falmouth's natural harbour is the third largest deep-water harbour in the world, the traditional gateway to the Atlantic and one of the world's great sailing harbours. Our office is situated within an established marina and is a short walk from the town.

The business was first started in 1978 and Simon has been trading successfully ever since those early days. Simon specialises in all aspects of marine engineering for the pleasure boat industry along with some commercial work. All types of small and large inboard engines are worked on. The flexibility of the business has led not only to the latest in marine technology worked on but also much older engines often considered uneconomical for repair by larger firms.
In the 60's and 70's Macsalvors consolidated it's surplus business but with changes in the way the M.O.D disposed of its surplus meant Macsalvors had to change too. This change led to the introduction of new goods and a whole new side to the business was born.
Since this time Macsalvors has supplied goods all over the world and have sold: Cornish shovels to Australia, ship refuelling hose to Canada, electric generating plant to Africa and ships equipment to France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Norway, Portugal and Spain (and the U.K. of course).
Our range of goods now includes: boat chandlery, building material, engineering supplies, hand and power tools, new and used office furniture, footwear, clothing and leisure products.
We also specialise in factory clearance.
