Nanny Cay, the largest full-service marina and boatyard in the British Virgin Islands, is expanding its chandlery operation. The 1800 square foot shop is going to be enlarged to 2800 square feet, an increase of just under 60%. The expansion will enable Nanny Cay to stock and display more products including inflatable dinghies and outboard engines; Nanny Cay is the BVI dealer for AB Inflatables and Tohatsu outboards.
The chandlery, located in the heart of Nanny Cay behind the Genaker Café, is currently stocked with over 5000 marine-related products from a range of manufacturers including Seahawk, Pettit, Mirka, Jabsco, Starbrite, West Systems, Eno, Leatherman, Rule, International Paints, Magma, Redtree, Anchor, Wichard, Shurflo and 3M. It also carries a wide selection of both metric and standard fittings and fasteners.
"The more space we have the more products we can have in stock. The more stock we have, the better we can serve our customers," said Miles Sutherland-Pilch, marina manager. "We’re planning to add product lines and increase the depth of existing lines we carry. With the growing numbers of marina and boatyard visitors coming to Nanny Cay we need to have more products available for immediate purchase and use."
Nanny Cay is going to increase its stock to over 6,000 products and will be adding chain, boat batteries, fishing supplies and equipment, Lewmar winches and spares, and a greater range of safety equipment such as lifejackets and fire extinguishers. Nanny Cay also offers a special order service.
Nanny Cay is located between Road Town and West End on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. Its fully equipped marina and boat repair facility has berths for 180 motor cruisers and yachts and two boat lifts of 50 and 70 tons capacity. Nanny Cay also includes a 40-room hotel and new waterfront townhouses for purchase and rental, two restaurants, a small supermarket, shops and boutiques, a dive shop, a water sports center, free WiFi service, and a gym and spa.
Nanny Cay is the host and presenting sponsor of the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival and host for international cruising rallies ARC Europe, the Caribbean 1500 and the Atlantic Cup.
