Our business is about helping you sustain yours and we do that by sourcing, supplying, installing and commissioning the right tools for the job.
And we do not just supply, but we support and help you sustain operational capacity with maintenance, spares and repairs for almost all types and makes of marine electronics equipment.
For your business to work safely, and effectively, you need the right navigational and communication tools for your particular business and maritime activity. No two businesses, vessels or their activities are necessarily the same. Standards apply, but we recognise needs and operational activities vary.
We work in many maritime business sectors, such as fishing, workboats, deep sea and coastal shipping, as well as offshore facilities, and super yachts.
No matter whether your vessel operates locally, regionally or internationally, we work to meet your specific needs. And as a UK based business with the support of our owners, the Aage Hempel Group, we are able and resourced to offer an extensive quality service across the UK and globally through our international division Aage Hempel UK.
Our efforts and our energies are always directed at that, providing the best solution available and by meeting your needs with a high level of service and after sales support. Your business is what drives our business.
Reinvestment, Renewal & Replacement

Charity & Taylor Asset Finance Packages provide a variety of options to meet the specific needs of almost all types of vessels and operations.
They offer in-built budget stability through four unique methods direct from Charity & Taylor.
