About SBS Boat Trailers
Boat Trailers and Boat Trailer Parts & Accessories
As an enthusiastic racing dinghy sailor our present Managing Director started out building G.P.14 and Enterprise dinghies from a lock up garage in 1957. From this followed the manufacture of the fittings in gunmetal, to such an extent that other builders started purchasing these items.
A company was formed in 1959 as Small Boat supplies and became a limited company in 1961. The main purpose at that time was the manufacture of dinghy fittings for the fast growing racing dinghy market.
Small Boat Trailers
This soon led to manufacturing a range of launching trolleys and with the increasing popularity of the small sailing cruiser an opening was seen in the boat trailer business and we were fortunate to be involved with the market leaders of the time, A.G. Hurley of Plymouth, Russel Marine of Southend and Blue Hulls of Blockley and made their trailers as original equipment.
SBS Trailers was formed to specialise in this market. Trailer production increased rapidly and from 90 a year in 1965 we are now probably the UK’s largest specialist boat trailer manufacturer.
Trends have changed and from making mainly bespoke sailboat trailers we now have a production line making our range of Roadrunner Sportsboat trailers. In addition we make a range of marina trolleys, showroom dollies, cruiser launchers and commercial trailers.
Our constant philosophy has been to provide the best product at the most competitive price using only the best components from the most respected sources.
We are constantly revising and updating our designs and components to make sure we have the latest technology and components incorporated in our products.
We now supply trailers to all the major sportsboat builders and importers and are preferred contractors to the MOD.
