About Vision Marine

Vision Marine is a new family run business - but with a purpose. We started for three simple reasons; we love sailing (and boats in general), we have often been left feeling let down by chandleries and (the main reason for us) was to provide a better employment alternative to our son who has learning difficulties as he approaches leaving school. 

While we are new in the trading sense, we have been busy for a long time setting up all the systems we need to provide you with the level of service that we expect (but often don't receive). We are not done with that yet either, and over time we will be doing lots more projects, some that you will see directly, some that you won't, but all of which will improve the service we give you. 

A key focus for us will be developing employment opportunities with people with disabilities (particularly learning disabilities), to let them be a part of the success of a company and to give them the chance to share in our love of boats and the sea. This can be a life changing experience for many, giving freedoms that are often out of reach on land. To do this we will offer employment directly, but to increase the impact we have, we will also work with local and national suppliers and manufacturers that offer supported work for people with disabilities. 

So, what can you expect from Vision Marine?

  • Passion. Your boat is your baby, as is ours. We want to help you care for yours in the same way we do ours.
  • Good, honest service, delivered as best we possibly can. We aim to get your purchases to you as quickly as possible and let you know what's happening.
  • As above, good communication. We know we won't get it right 100% of the time, but if we don't we will let you know and keep you posted while we sort the issue.
  • An improving service. Over time our service will get better, but we want it to become exactly the service we all would like to see from a chandlery. 
  • A helpful service. We have been sailing and messing about in boats all our lives, so if you need help with something, give us a call. We don't claim to be shipwrights, but we have done our fair share of fixing and maintaining and are more than happy to help out if we can. 

So, that's a little about us, but if you want to find out more, please feel free to give us a call or drop us an email.
