About us

Jimmy Green Marine - Ropes, Rigging and Safety

We specialise in bespoke ropes and rigging, anchoring and mooring solutions, complementary deck hardware and safety equipment, selling online in the UK and all around the world.

Green Family, Beer, East Devon

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 a Mail Order Chandlers in 1981 and has continually evolved since those early days.
Originally based around Boat Shows and Boat Jumbles, the Green family has continuously moved with the times, resulting in the current innovative, custom build online service, backed up by a telephone order and help centre.
And there is another more intuitive website in development to whet the appetite of our growing client base.

Custom Splicing and Rigging Service

Looking to the future, Jimmy Green has a mission to empower yacht owners to sail sustainably for the preservation of our waters and our planet.
