BGD (Boat Gear Direct) is part of the EYE Company Limited group which includes EYE Marine Limited and EYE Lifting Limited.
Originally BGD was formed to provide for the needs of boating people who did not require commercial quantities of the range of mooring products supplied by EYE Marine Limited to Ports, Harbour Authorities and Offshore Contractors.
Our aim was to supply every piece of equipment from the Mooring Sinker/Anchor to the tether that goes from the buoy to the boat. It was surprising to find just how many people deploy and service their own mooring or prefer to supply good quality equipment for a contractor to do it for them.
Not wishing to rest on our laurels we soon began to offer other equipment produced by the same manufacturers who we were using for mooring equipment, e.g. DanFender of Denmark supply our Mooring Buoys, they also make the product known as Fenderstep which we quickly introduced to the UK market.
The range of BGD products now include items for Mooring, Anchoring, Berthing, and Storage together with services that include rope splicing by our Navy Dockyard Trained Riggers, fabrication of marine equipment by our coded welders and advice freely given by people who have hands-on experience.
