YACHT chandlery Seamark Nunn has been named Marine Retailer of the Year at the Marine Trade Association (MTA) Boating Business annual industry awards, held at the London International Boat Show.

The award is one of the premier accolades to be handed out by the MTA, whose chairman, Chris Murdoch, described the past 12 months have having been “very tough” for both the marine industry and the retail sector in general.

Andrew Nunn, managing director of Seamark Nunn, which was established in 1961 and is based at Trimley St Martin, near Felixstowe, said: “This is an especially proud moment for the whole team at Seamark Nunn.

“We’ve invested heavily in refurbishing our chandlery and just re-launched our website with a fresh new look and easier to use navigation.”

The MTA/BB Awards are judged by a panel of personalities who all have a firm foothold and a solid reputation within the marine industry.

The retailer award was presented by one of the MTA/BB judging panel, Charlie Mill, managing director of Ocean Safety Ltd.
