Celebrating 20 Years of Business BAYSIDE MARINE IS CELEBRATING ITS 20TH


a commercial chandlery. The founder, David Becconsall, became a local fisherman after leaving school in the 1960s. David owned over 30 fishing vessels, skippering and managing them, until eventually he came ashore to manage his boats. He employed Colin Kendrick, a skilled and experienced trawl maker, to ensure his vessels never had to wait for essential equipment if it was lost or damaged at sea. This then progressed naturally into constructing fishing equipment for other local vessels.


T


In 1998, David Becconsall and his daughter Teresa Louth, started Becconsall Fishing Gear Supplies, whose shop opened on Higher Furzeham Road, Brixham and served the local commercial fishing fleet of Brixham and beyond.


When Colin Kendrick retired in 2003, the difficult decision was made to move away from selling fishing gear and focus the business more on the leisure market which was rapidly growing. The business quickly diversified and changed its name to the more fitting title of Bayside Marine and swiftly grew into one of the South West’s largest chandleries!


The manager David Thomas, who has been with Bayside Marine for 12 years said: “2009 saw the development of our ecommerce business which has far exceeded our expectations and it continues to grow at a steady pace. Ironically, a few local customers (now shop customers) came across us from buying direct on our ebay store.”


Now with 5 full time and 1 seasonal member of staff, 2 websites, an ebay shop and 2 floors of products at the main retail shop


he business has diversified and grown since it was established in 1998 as


YEAR AS A FAMILY RUN LOCAL MARINE CHANDLERY.


“we take great


pride in being a family run, independent chandlery...”

in Brixham, Bayside Marine has evolved into a well stocked, and well received chandlery amongst a loyal customer base around the bay and beyond.


Director and owner Teresa Louth


said: “We take great pride in being a family run, independent chandlery in Torbay and are very proud of the business that we have built in the past 20 years. I never believed our business would become so successful and serve so many marine customers in the South West and beyond. We attribute our success to the quality of our staff who provide our customers with the best in service and I often receive wonderful praise for each and all of the staff here. One comment, in particular, is the praise for our “cheery and extremely helpful” Tony Wellspring. Tony is our ‘front of house’ customer service man, a skill he honed after a lifetime as a local publican.


“Bayside Marine has grown from


strength to strength over the past 20 years and has achieved so


much. We have always strived to maintain good relationships with our loyal customers who we would like to thank wholeheartedly for their continued support and repeat custom over the past 20 years. We are excited about what the future holds and look forward to the years ahead.”
