The Christchurch Boat Shop


General chandlery, hardware & rigging services

Welcome to our chandlery which is well stocked with everything that you may need for your boat; from nuts and bolts to paint or cleaning products, life jackets to anchors.  We aim to offer value for money for quality chandlery, hopefully with customer service second to none. If we don't have what you require in stock, we can order it for you.  Started in 1997, we have a friendly 'hands on', problem-solving approach, based on our broad range of boating expertise in sailing dinghies, dayboats, cruisers, and racing yachts.  Our advice is free, and if your enquiry does not elicit an immediate answer, we will find out and get back to you.


Marine or architectural rigging is made to order in our own premises at very competitive rates, including rope splicing of 3 strand or braid on braid rope, and wire rigging with talurit eyes from 2.0mm to 6.0mm diameter wire.  We stock an extensive range of ropes in a variety of colours, from 1.2mm to 24mm diameter in a range of materials including Polyester, Polyamide, Dyneema, and traditional Manilla. Our website features just some of the items that are stocked within our chandlery. To view the full range of products, please visit us.  If you would like to check the availability or order any items please do not hesitate to telephone on 01202 482751 or email at [email protected].
