New Marine Equipment stand at Southampton Boat Show

Published on: 31/07/2019

Since the inception of the Barrus Marine Equipment Division in August 2018, the team has secured distribution of 20 new brands which complement the existing range of parts and accessories distributed by Barrus. 

For the first time at Southampton Boat Show, the Marine Equipment Division will have a dedicated stand to display these newly signed-up brands together under the Barrus umbrella. 

This eclectic mix of brands and products will include something of interest to all boaters; from those who own inflatable dinghies to sailing boats, powerboats and super yachts. Products will range from the Comfort Fit line of Besto life jackets to the new range of Barton blocks. 13 metres of the stand will be filled with the extensive Talamex range plus digital antennas, sensors and cameras from Glomex will make their debut. 



Talamex boasts one of the most comprehensive collections of marine chandlery products in the industry with over 3500 items in its range.

From inflatable boats to ropes and fuses, there is a practical mix of technical and non-technical products to suit sailing boats, motorboats and inflatables at an affordable price.
