About Us


Boatworld UK was established as a business over fifty years ago in 1969.  Back then, Boatworld was a traditional bricks and mortar retailer selling boating and water sports equipment from a mail-order catalogue. Since then Boatworld has changed and adapted into a top online retailer to bring you all that is best in the boating and water sports world online.

Amongst our products, we stock a wide range of small inflatable boats and outboard engines, complemented by a vast array of accessories to go with them and larger sports boats. Our warehouses have all the latest from top water sports brands for tow behind fun, for all the family. So whether it’s an anchor or a wetsuit, a boat cover or buoyancy aid, we should have something in our locker for you! Because we stock it, it comes out to you straight away with no delay!

We are staffed by a small, friendly, dedicated team, that knows what’s going on in the industry and marketplace. You can contact us through the website, social media, email and we are happy to hear from you over the phone. We pride ourselves in being available to advise and help with any of your requirements.

Of course, we still like to practice what we preach which means we love to product test whenever we can!



I’ve been loving life at Boatworld now since 2011, but I’ve been a customer for a lot longer! I’m a keen sailor with a passion for watersports, with over 40 years of experience out on the water, whether that’s barefoot skiing or sailing the atlantic.

Managing Director

Having worked at Boatworld on and off for over 20 years, I now take care of all the day-to-day running of Boatworld. As Dave (the late founder of Boatworld) was my Step Father, we were always on the water every weekend on our Bayliner having loads of fun.

Marketing Manager

My role is to take care of all the marketing and publicity for Boatworld. If you receive our emails, see an advert or read our social media posts, it’s likely me who’s worked on it! When I’m not working I’m an avid gamer, traveller, and sports lover.

Operations Supervisor

As operations supervisor, I’m dedicated to ensuring smooth and seamless operations at Boatworld. From planning trade shows to organising staff socials and everything in between. When I can, I love to go skiing and increase my wine collection.

Sales & Customer Service Executive

I am a Sales & Customer Service Executive here at Boatworld. I will be the one who deals with all your enquiries and questions. I am passionate about cars and anything mechanical. Outside of work, I love spending time with my family and learning new things.

Videography & Graphic Designer

I’ve worked at Boatworld since 2015, doing various jobs. Now, I create social media content and design graphics for online and print as a Videography & Graphic Designer. In my free time, I love to photograph motorsport events and go paddleboarding.

Bookkeeper & Business Administrator

I take care of Boatworld’s admin and accounting. I’ve long been interested in boats ever since going out on the water with my Dad as a kid on our sailboat! Nowadays I love to spend my spare time out of the office with my two lovely daughters.

Warehouse Operative

I take charge of keeping the Boatworld warehouse running like a well-oiled machine. When I’m not busy packing and shipping your orders out you can find me out with my kids or cheering on my local football team, the mighty Chesterfield FC.

Marine Engineer

As a Marine Engineer, I focus on preparing, maintaining and servicing outboard engines. I also set up and repair boats.

In my spare time, I love fixing and tinkering with engines, cars & motorbikes and spending time with my family.

I bought a number of items from Boatworld. Dave and the team were really helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Dave spent a long time explaining the workings of my new outboard, and other things without rushing. Excellent service, highly recommended. 5 stars.

This place is unreal the customer service was the best you’ve ever seen the 2 chaps that helped me Mike and Dave were the 2 helpful members of staff I’ve ever seen. I purchased a 360 Fisher pro the best boat for the money I’ve ever brought very well made and great quality.

Ordered some kit online recently and the wrong item was delivered. A quick email addressed the problem very quickly ( next day ). Things go wrong for everyone from time to time so the real test is how quickly they can be put right. Really good service – thanks, guys!

As a boat and watersports lover living in Crete Greece, I have, for many years dealt with Boatworld, and to date never been let down yet. SO!! a big thank you to Mike and his crew for my latest order which has been dispatched within hours of receiving such.
