Boatcare, a boat maintenance company founded by UK marina operator Boatfolk, has partnered with marine tech firm Sleipner.

Sales and service of Sleipner’s products and technology are now available at Boatcare’s outlets within all 11 of Boatfolk’s marinas across the UK.

Boatcare says this partnership will offer sales and servicing of Sleipners’ thruster, stabiliser steering, and anchor windlass products nationally.

Customers can select the most suitable equipment from various pumps, cylinders, and accessories, ensuring a tailor-made solution for their boat’s specific requirements.

“By joining forces with Sleipner, we are not only expanding our product offerings but also enhancing our service capabilities,” says Deena Currie, group Boatcare sales and marketing manager. “This partnership allows us to provide expert advice and support to customers who haven’t previously had local access to a specialist partner.

“We are poised to elevate our boatcare services, enhance customer satisfaction, and set new standards of safety and comfort. We are excited to embark on this journey with Sleipner and look forward to delivering unparalleled value to our customers.”

The partnership is not exclusive to Boatcare, but the firm says it does represent a ‘marked expansion for Sleipner products in the south-west region.’

“We are excited to announce that, due to remarkable growth and interest in the world-leading thruster range, we are expanding our dealership network throughout the UK,” says Russell Chadwick, general manager of Sleipner UK. “We are thrilled to officially welcome aboard Boatcare, who will help us remain dedicated in providing customers the best possible service.”

The news comes the same week that Dockmate, a manufacturer of wireless remote controls for yachts, announced full support for all Sleipner thruster systems and configurations.
