About us

Jimmy Green Marine - Ropes, Rigging and Safety

Specialists in bespoke ropes, rigging, anchoring solutions, technical chandlery and sailing clothing, selling online in the UK and all around the world.

Reliable, Continuous Service since 1981

We are a family business, owned and run by the Green family, based in the coastal village of Beer in East Devon. Team Jimmy Green is an umbrella for the Jimmy Green crew that make up the Rigging, Sewing, Sales and Despatch Teams. All these teams work together at our chandlery store and workshop to produce our custom ropes, rigging and safety products and send out all your orders.

Jimmy Green started out as Mail Order Chandlers in 1981 and has continually evolved from being based around Boat Shows and Boat Jumbles in the early days to an innovative, custom, online-based service, backed up by a telephone order and advice centre today.

Meet the team

We are the designers of Anchorplait© (with the easy-splice markers) which is manufactured by our main rope suppliers, LIROS Ropes.

We are pioneers in the development of polyester classic ropes e.g. Hempline© and Hemplait©.

We are the designers and manufacturers of the Jimmy Green range of telescopic Danbuoys for man overboard recovery.

Our aims are to:

  • Provide our customers with high quality products and personal service they can trust, supported by a team of riggers and sailors with first hand knowledge and experience.
  • Inspire pride in everyone who works for Jimmy Green by sharing a belief in the quality of our products and by caring about every customer's experience.
  • Embrace change and innovation, including collaboration with our approved trade partners and suppliers.
  • Offer help to our local community by supporting individuals, organisations and initiatives.
