About us

Leading UK marine wholesaler

Our promise to you

Our aim here at Seaware isn’t just to sell you any old product – anyone can do that. We’re a small enough company that we can be flexible; we can order special items for our customers and you’ll always speak to a real human being, here in Cornwall, within a few rings, if you need to call us for any reason!

Our promise to you is that we’ll listen to what you need, advise and help you wherever necessary with our wealth of product and general boat knowledge, be as competitive on price as we can be, and then arrange a delivery that suits. And that’s what we hope makes us different.

About Seaware

Seaware Ltd has been operating since 1988 and has grown to become one of the UK’s leading marine wholesalers. In July 2014 it was bought by husband and wife team Paul and Sam Clark when they relocated down to Cornwall from Frome, in Somerset, with their 3 children. A lover of all things sailing related, Paul was keen to buy a marine based business and was delighted when the former owners wished to sell the business so that they could retire.

About our team

In addition to the owners, Seaware has 6 wonderful and very knowledgeable members of staff (plus Poppy the ‘Seaware dog ’who is less knowledgeable it has to be said but very friendly) who are a great team and who make Seaware a very special company to be a part of. The team are passionate about Cornwall and the surrounding Falmouth area, boats and cake (Thursday buns are an important part of Seaware’s week!)

Many of our staff have worked at Seaware for years, and they have a very in-depth knowledge of the industry and all the products that we sell. We have approx 9,500 products in the warehouse, at last count, so this is no mean feat and with many customers across Devon and Cornwall, as well as further afield, there's always lots going on.

Extensive product range

Amongst the wide range of items that we stock are: Silicon Bronze Wood Screws, Bonda Resin, International and Hempels Paint, PSP Marine tapes, Copper and Gripfast nails, English Braids rope, Sikaflex, 3M sealant and adhesives, sand paper, paint  brushes and thousands of other marine chandlery items for shops and boat repair.

We are also distributors for Vetus products, many of which we carry in stock. In fact, we can order any Vetus product for you, except engines. To receive a full Vetus catalogue and matching price list, please contact us today.

As well as selling to the marine trade we also stock many items that are of use to other industries such as furniture makers, bike manufacturers, the caravan trade, car repair shops etc. Our range of Gripfast nails, panel pins, woodscrews, linseed oil, 3M abrasives and varnishes are all proving particularly popular with wooden furniture makers and so our products are by no means limited to the marine trade.

Dedicated customer care

Excellent customer service is key in our business, whether over the phone or at our trade counter and we are very proud of the many loyal and long standing customers that we have, many of whom we know well. We offer a free van delivery service where we can to our business customers in Cornwall and South Devon or if you’re not local then we can offer free postage on orders over £150 (excl. VAT) to mainland UK. We are open Monday to Thursday 8am - 5pm and Friday 8am - 4pm.

Please do pop in to see us if you’re ever passing, and if you live further afield, then we look forward to speaking to you soon.
