New Products, Services
NT News, September 24th, 2016.
COMMUNITY spirit is alive and well in Darwin, especially within the marine industry. Sailors get together for sundowners at local clubs, fishermen talk shop while maintaining their vessels, businesses support one another, and most of them know Nautical Supplies.
In September last year, Nautical Supplies formed a strategic alliance with the AMI Group, a portfolio of companies with locations throughout Australasia that provide a service network and expansive product range across communications, safety, electronics and chandlery.
Twelve months since the partnership began, Nautical Supplies continues to support marine customers in the NT by offering new services, new products, and local knowledge and expertise that comes from being a long established Darwin owned and operated business. With a range of products ideal for the racing and sailing community, it made sense for Nautical Supplies to offer sponsorships past and ongoing for events on the Darwin race calendar.
Sailors can also outfit their rig with new sails or schedule inspections via Nautical’s unique sail loft. The loft includes splicing services and a new roll swaging machine.
More than a Chandlery, Nautical offers a well-supported sales and service package for commercial, defence and government operators with growth into marine communications, radio surveys, satellite hardware and airtime and marine safety with factory trained technicians.
With the cyclone season fast approaching, Nautical Supplies can offer mooring solutions including mooring ropes, buoys and hardware. If in need of replacement parts for Johnson, Jabsco and Marco Pumps, updating Navionics Electronic Charts, or stopping in for flares, anti-foul and paints or epoxy resins, or curious about new Zipwake trim tab systems, ask around and most will mention Nautical Supplies on Frances Bay Drive.
