A company manufacturing eco yacht toys and a traditional boat yard located in one of the UK’s most scenic creeks have all recently been accepted as members of the South West region of the UK’s marine industry trade body, the British Marine Federation.

The British Marine Federation South West region represents more than 170 companies.

Membership is recognised as a mark of professionalism, high standards and service and product quality in the industry.

The British Marine Federation now has over 1,500 members across the leisure, superyacht and small commercial marine sectors.

The BMF South West is the largest region by revenue, contributing around 31% of the industry’s £2.9 billion.

Recent new members include Eco Yacht Toys, a company which provides a specialist toy shop and consultancy service to the marine industry.

The company sources and supplies cutting edge and creative ‘toys’ for use on and near yachts from stand up paddle boards to water trampolines waterslides and hoverboards.

Frogmore Creek is an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty, located in the Salcombe Estuary.

A popular area for sailing, Frogmore Marine Services is ideally located to provide on and off the water storage for boats, engine servicing and repairs, GRP and boat repairs and maintenance and engine sales.

A family run business, with many years of exceptional service provided to their customers, the team at Frogmore pride themselves on their high quality and personal service.

Tamsin Elliott-Friend, manager at Frogmore Marine Services, is also actively involved with the South West region of the British marine Industry and sits on the BMFSW Board of directors.

She said: “The BMF South West membership is recognised an endorsement of a company’s quality and service standards.

“We benefit from its courses and training packages, and from involvement in events organised by the BMF SW such as the recent Try a Boat Event in Dartmouth, where we made contact with several new customers.”
