Chandlery, advice & much more

Nick Cox Yacht Chandler is one of the largest independent chandleries on the South coast. Set up over 35 years ago, our team of marine experts and local sailors specialise in offering industry leading Marine Services and giving you the best advice and knowledge, helping you to get on the water.

We offer a wide range of chandlery items for yachts and dinghies spread over two large retail floors and where we don't have it on the shelf we can order it in for you.

You'll find a great selection of rope, deck hardware, plumbing, electrics, maintenance & repair and cleaning products. Plus, there's all the safety gear you'll need and technical clothing for on and off the water.

There's also an on-site convienience store & off licence for you to pick up a newspaper, a bite to eat or something more special.

What more could you ask for? And if you think of something, please tell us, we'd love to hear from you.

Friendly expertise

Our team is headed up by Matt & Lizzie Evans who have the good grace to live and work together.

Sailing since day dot, Matt took over from Nick Cox in 2005, bringing with him his years of professional experience as a shipwright, building and refitting custom yachts. Matt has also worked professionally as a rigger and boat refit manager. When not on the water, Matt breaks out in a cold sweat and so can be found on or near a boat most days.

In 2010, Matt poached Lizzie from her career in programme management, to head up the shop operations. Lizzie can be found sailing as much as possible in her spare time, usually in an attempt to beat Matt around the race course!

They're supported by a fantastic team of local sailors and marine experts who between them have years of industry know how, to provide you with the best product advice and knowledge.


Nick Cox is the best for service I that have come across in over forty years of buying sailing kit, thirty years buying almost all of it from Nick Cox Chandlery. I am always impressed with the speed with which you deliver the goods, whether it is for a total fit out of a new boat or just a replacement burgee stick!! Matt has brought together a superb team that gives us knowledgeable, friendly and energetic service.

There aren’t many chandlers that you can rely on to give you brilliant, honest and friendly advice every time you walk in.  I’ve lost count of how many times they’ve got me out of a winter maintenance dilemma […] They are particularly good at finding “that bit” that no-one else could be bothered to help me source: this sort of relationship with a local business really makes the difference when you’re a relative newcomer in the wonderfully challenging world of boat ownership!

I have been using Nick Cox for over 30 years for all my chandlery requirements. They stock pretty well everything you will need and the friendly, helpful team are always happy to order in any specific item you may require. Matt is a qualified shipwright and is always happy to offer guidance and advice. There is not much he doesn't know!

Ray Mitchell, Lymington

Whether I am in daily or monthly, I am always made to feel that I am given a personal service and am part of the ‘family’ who use the chandlery. The advice given is perfect for my needs and always given frankly (especially by Matt); I am a far more competent owner/sailor as a result of all the conversations I have had at the chandlery over the last decade. Big Supporter – your personal touch is a real winner.
