Seasure now sole UK distributor for Schaefer Marine

Schaefer Marine have appointed Sea Sure Limited as their sole distributor in the United Kingdom. This follows the establishment of Schaefer as Sea Sure’s US distributor eighteen months ago. Product ranges include all Schaefer hardware, including their high-selling range of jib furlers, the battslide range of travellers for sailmakers and the respected Tuff Luff twin grove headstay system.

Sea Sure already distributes to many of the UK‘s chandleries. All Schaefer products can now be ordered from Sea Sure’s production base in Warsash, Southampton.

Steve Majkut, Director of Sales & Marketing at Schaefer stated “During the past eighteen months, we have worked closely with Sea Sure as the United States Distributor for their products. We are excited to build on the synergies of both companies as we complement each other well in our range of products. Our ability to have product on the ground and ready to serve the U.K. market is more critical now than at any other time. Apart from that, they are a great bunch of guys to work with and all share our passion for sailing.”

Graham Brown, Managing Director of Sea-Sure Ltd stated “From the outset we could see how all our customers could benefit from the shared logistics; a wider range of complementary product lines being delivered at lowest cost.”
