Combining a wealth of knowledge and expertise for the distribution, sales and servicing of marine products and spares is the philosophy behind the newly formed SeaFront Marine Group.
Set up by former Ocean Safety directors, Charlie Mill and Richard Besse, and business partners Simon Sheehan and Glynne Benge, the company encompasses three subsidiary companies: C-Front Trading, Spares Marine and YouBoat.
C-Front Trading distribute leading brands in boat maintenance and paint consumables. The team of Jack Sharland and Finley Mill have just been appointed as the Hempel paints distributors for commercial and professional applicators. The portfolio represented by C-Front will shortly be expanding to include maintenance products and paint consumables.
Spares Marine is an online company offering unrivalled product information, support and product spares from leading marine brands. The team of Steve and Nikki Walker at Spares Marine provide detailed technical drawings for many brands ensuring even the most elusive spare parts can be identified and provided. From electronics for industry leading brands to toilets, cookers, pumps and safety equipment, the comprehensive support is unrivalled. In addition to spare parts they are also service agents for McMurdo and Navionics.
YouBoat is the go-to destination chandlery based in Gosport offering an extensive range of marine products. Headed up by Simon and Jayne Sheehan, who has over 25 years’ experience in marine retail, Simon and Jayne are well known by those visiting the YouBoat facility in Endeavour Quay, Gosport. Customers to YouBoat are able to find everything from cookers, windlasses, footwear, paint, anchors, ropes, compasses, toilets, electronics and safety gear. The shop is supported by 10,000sq ft warehousing facility nearby, meaning that they are well stocked to meet the needs of any yachtsman or boater.
Following the formation of the company, Managing Director, Charlie Mill commented, “SeaFront Marine brings together a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the market, and between the three companies we provide an extensive array of products meeting needs of all boat users from hobby sailors to commercial boat users and operators.”
