“British Marine is our national body and has the power to look after our interests collectively. The British Marine brand also adds cachet and a stamp of approval for members”

James Robinson, Marketing Director, Williams Performance Tenders

"Attending the METS trade show as an exhibitor on the British Marine Pavilion has been a fantastic experience for Makefast. The Pavilion provides a central location for visitors to discover high-quality British businesses, offering invaluable networking opportunities in a vibrant atmosphere."

Chris Cooper Sales and Business Development Manager at Makefast 

“We were having difficulty in recovering a longstanding debt to our business and then British Marine BusinessCare came to mind. We found the perfect template letters to use and subsequently have received a payment and a payment plan to clear the debt, so really happy with this member service.”

Jonathan Hobbs, Managing Director, Hobbs of Henley

"I was very impressed by the solid advice that I received from the technical team. Their guidance and expertise allowed me to proceed with my business expansion plans. It’s also reassuring to have access to expert advice should any questions arise in the future. Although I’ve only recently joined, the membership has already shown its value."

Ben Walker, Owner, Blue Lagoon Marine

“This year, we’ve been fortunate enough to find ourselves in the position to hire new staff. As members of British Marine, we took full advantage of their job board and successfully recruited four new members of staff without the added financial pressure of agency fees.”

Tom Marfleet, Marina Manager, Emsworth Yacht Harbour.

“The trainer who delivered our bespoke BMEEA-certified Marine Electrical Technician (BMET)​ course was friendly, delivered the course well and with confidence. The course was thorough, informative and relevant to each person who attended. Following completion, the team have found the knowledge gained valuable when performing their duties within the marina. We would recommend training arranged through British Marine and will certainly be booking courses in the future.”

Paul Austin, Engineer Team Leader, Richardson Leisure Limited

‘British Marine have provided ABC Leisure Group with invaluable support, through representation and via its associations, but also specialist advice such as VAT and Crisis Management’

Carl Onens, Managing Director at ABC Leisure Group Ltd
