For nearly 80 years, Barton Marine has been making and dispatching world-class sailing blocks, track and cars from our factory in Southeast England.
Starting in 1948, in Whitstable UK, famed for its shipwright heritage, our founder, Ron Barton, was one of the first to use a fabric based laminated plastic called Tufnol and stainless steel to manufacture leisure marine yachting blocks which were much lighter and stronger than previously constructed.
As a marine company of many firsts and moving into new and dynamic manufacturing processes, Barton Marine has become a global leader in high-quality, well-engineered modern sailing hardware and accessories.
The most reassuring aspect of Barton Marine products are that they provide peace of mind. When you buy Barton Marine equipment, you are purchasing more than just a piece of hardware, you are investing in a traditional company, which has always kept innovation and high-standards in its sights.
