Who are we?
Ely Boat Chandlers has been meeting the chandlery needs of Cambridgeshire for over 30 years, and supplying chandlery and solid fuel stoves online since 2005. We are a well stocked shop and pride ourselves at being able to offer the customer complete solutions. There are two of us here full time, Richard and Liam, with some occasional help when needed from Keith. Any one of us will be happy to help.
We hold a large proportion of the items on our website in stock (allowing for seasonal variations) and much-much more besides!. As a shop we stock over 5000 different product lines, therefore if you don’t see what you are after on our website then please feel free to ask because chances are we most probably stock it.
We have recently changed our branding from "Ely Boat Chandlers" to "EBC Marine", we are still the same Ltd company, in the same location and staffed by the same people. The change was implemented to bring us more up to date and reflect our nationwide customer base thanks to online trading.
We always aim to offer the best prices (and service) we can across the store. However, if you are local, looking to make a "significant" purchase and are considering buying elsewhere then we'd be happy to hear from you. We can't promise to always match or better a competitors offering, but where we can we will (proof of pricing needed).... our prices and offers are on the web for all to see 24/7 and we sell nationally...so you can be assured we are competitive!
Where you see the "Price Match" symbol we will endeavour to match any "like for like" offer where possible. We are commited to bringing you quality products at the right prices, and therefore advertise very competitive prices upfront, however we wouldn't want to lose your business for the sake of a few pounds; therefore please feel free to contact us if you have a specific offer you would like us to try and match.
We are located in the beautiful city of Ely (about 17 miles North of Cambridge). Our shop is on a high street location approximately 200 yards from the River Great Ouse where you will find a vibrant boating scene that caters for both cruisers and Narrowboats. Should you wish to visit us by River you will find plenty of mooring in Ely, with our shop being less than a 5 minute walk from the quayside, otherwise if you want to visit us by car you should find ample parking right outside our front door. You will find more detail about where we are and how to get here on our “How to find us” page.
Our aim is to provide a personal and knowledgeable service in the shop for those lucky enough to boat locally, and to extend that level of service nationally to our internet customers. Our belief is that internet selling needn’t be an anonymous affair where customers struggle to obtain the advice and assistance they need. We are a real “walk in the door shop” and as such are happy to meet your chandlery needs if you pop in and see us, or to spend time talking through and advising you on your query or purchase if you are placing an order with us online.
When dealing with Ely Boat Chandlers you will normally be served by Richard or Liam. Richard is the proprietor and has been working in the business since 2003, with a Mechanical engineering degree and a keen interest in boats since he was a child, he will be more than happy to talk you through some of the more technical and specialist items we sell, ranging from Mastervolt electronics to Honda outboards and diesel heating systems. Liam has nearly 25 years engineering experience with the Royal Navy and as a fresh face to Ely Boat Chandlers in 2011 will be happy to help with all your chandlery needs, big or small.
