Helping our Customers


We ship all over the Globe : from small packages to large containers

We are sending to the EU and to Northern Ireland, please email us on for freight costs

We will remove the 20% VAT shown on the website , however you maybe charged VAT at your local rate by your countries authorities 

We will do everything we can to make this hassle free cross border shopping

If you are a business or your order is large please also provide us with your EORI number 

All UK and Overseas deliveries are as normal except there maybe delays 

At this time, customers living outside of the UK cannot create an account and purchase direct through the website.

This is because there is no way that we can leave it to a computer to calculate the shipping of items to outside the UK without problems calculating multiple, mixed-material, consignments and  at the same time getting you, the customer, the most competitive rate. In our experience, marine antiques and decor are usually, large and bulky items and not very ‘add to basket’ friendly, hence our product upload policy of, ‘if in doubt, turn it to enquire’. So, as in most cases, if the website cannot calculate freight to your country, you must fill in an enquiry on the item or items you are interested in, or telephone us directly to purchase.

For purchase enquiries e-mail us at: or call us on: 0044 (0) 1647 253400

By tolerating the inability to purchase direct through our website you are gaining by allowing us to find the best possible freight quote for you. More work for us for sure, but a greater number of satisfied customers.

Unlike most antique dealers on the ‘special scheme’ we are VAT registered and have to charge VAT on all our goods that VAT applies to.

Businesses that can provide relevant tax credentials will receive a VAT invoice.

Boat, Ship builders or renovators that can supply the relevant VAT exemption certificates also qualify for VAT exemptions

If you are in any doubt or would like to talk through the VAT with us , please call us on 0044 (0) 1647 253400

Throughout our new website, we display prices where possible, but some may have the Add to Cart button removed and replaced with ‘Call for Price’. This is where the item is either fragile or weighs a lot and due to ever changing prices through couriers, we need to work out the best price to ship your goods. Please click the ‘Enquiry’ tab which is found within each and every product on our website, in order to send us your enquiry so that we can work out the most cost effective and reliable method of transport to your location.

Put briefly this means;

If you are interest in a price for an item which is not displaying a price, please contact us for a price by e-mail, phone or by filling in the enquiry form.

From the compulsive to the most selective, from the exhibitionist to the most discreet of collectors, all needs can be successfully catered for. Collectors from all around the World rely on us to find them the rare, unique and most importantly genuine marine antiques. We can also work on commission to acquire and appraise any antiques you are interested in us seeking out.

European pallet prices are also very reasonable considering the cost of shipping these days.

The only function this website, or any for that matter, cannot do accurately is to calculate the price of freight and shipping to countries outside of the UK.
