Our ethos is to provide our customers with good service. Some people would put “Chandlery” under “Products for Sale” in a website but we regard having basic maintenance items on hand for our customers as a service. To us that means that, if a customer hauls out one day unexpectedly and we already have what they need in stock, it’s a lot less hassle for our customers and we have gained trust that we’ll have what is needed when required.
Of course we don’t have absolutely every item in stock but we try and keep the most commonly used as follows below:
We stock the following types of antifouling in our DG stores:
Sea Barrier 3000. This is an Altex ablative antifouling and it is the commercial equivalent of Altex No 5. We stock black, blue and red. If you require green it will need to be in Altex No 5
Awlcraft. This is an International ablative antifouling. We stock black, blue and red
Trilux 33. This is an International aluminium safe antifouling. We stock black, blue and red
We can also get overnight Micron Extra, Micron 66, Ultra and most other antifouls from both International and Altex as well as PETTIT vivid in a range of colours not available in other products.

EPIRBS And PLBS
We are the local stockists for the well known, high quality brand of McMurdo EPIRBS and PLBS (personal locator beacons). McMurdo are not the cheapest brand on the market but when it comes to servicing (changing the battery at replacement time) there is a full service facility available to do this as well as test the unit before it goes back into service. There are a range of beacons including float free options for offshore vessels.
Kiwi prop is a brand of feathering props for yachts, designed and made in NZ. These props have independent feathering blades constructed from glass reinforced plastic. These props are made in a range of sizes in 3 and 4 blade options to fit shaft installations as well as sail drives. The plastic blades are sometimes frowned upon but they are extremely strong and, as the majority of the total mass of the prop is in the metal hub, they operate extremely smoothly. These props are exported world wide and are installed on some of the worlds’ well known production yachts.
