Business overview

Barnet Marine Centre Ltd

Founded over 40 years ago by Keith Chapman, we have specialised in the sale and support of inflatable boats and outboards for nearly as long as they have been available as leisure products in the UK. In the past 40 years we have moved site only once and in 2005 we moved to Welwyn Garden City, 11 miles from where we used to be opposite the Odeon Cinema in Barnet.

Over the years we have found that by holding in our stock, many things our suppliers quote long deliveries on, we have been able to fulfil requirements quickly and to schedule. Laurence Lock, joined the company in the late 80's and finally took control in 2005 when the Chapman family ceased to have an interest in the business. Retailing has changed beyond all recognition in the 40 + years Barnet Marine has been in business and Barnet Marine have responded to those changes being one of the companies to forge the way forward in mail order retailing of Boats and Engines.

Staff hugely experienced, pleasant to deal with and they saved me money.

Went in to buy an outboard. I had done some homework online and had a number of ideas that I felt would lead me to a good choice. The very helpful agent talked me through these issues - motor weight, power, features etc. With great patience he let me physically handle the engines and try the weights for myself, and talked me through my queries and concerns. He recommended a different brand from my early thoughts and I am now very happy with my purchase.
Whilst I am a qualified engineer and tech savvy, his specialist experience with outboards was clearly evident and really valuable.
More than that, the motor he recommended was cheaper than the one I had intended to buy. He then explained clearly all the issues with oil, fuel and generally how to best start the motor and work with it. All in all a very pleasant and valuable experience.
