Marinestore is a thriving "bricks & mortar" and on-line mail order chandlery with 4 separate retail outlets, each of which contains stock and equipment suitable for the local requirements. The Maldon shop is geared towards the classic and traditional part of the market, supplying unusual but traditional items such as lanolin, red lead powder, bronze fittings and just about anything for the older craft. Modern equipment sits happily alongside all of the traditional gear. The Maldon yard also features some of the best shipwrights around and has berthing and cranage available.
The Burnham shop is situated in Burnham Yacht Harbour at Burnham on Crouch. This place has more of a racing flavour, and the stock reflects this. Titchmarsh Marina at Walton on the Naze hosts our largest and most prestigious shop, over 5000 sq ft of space is dedicated to chandlery. This site caters for cruising craft and larger motor boats. The West Mersea outlet leans towards dinghy and clothing supplies and has a large range of hard to find spares for racing boats.
You will find everything you need to make your boating days pleasurable, fun, exciting and above all safe. We are dedicated to offering all our customers value for money and a complete service that people can trust and rely on.
