Pirates Cave acquires UK-based, mail-order chandlery for undisclosed sum

Pirates Cave, a UK chandlery based in Kent, has acquired the Mailspeed Marine brand from Friday Media Group. Included in the acquisition is the website, mailspeedmarine.com, which will be merged with piratescave.co.uk.

The move further cements Pirates Cave as “one of the best-stocked chandlers in the South East, with more product lines available than ever before,” says the company in a statement.

Established in 1981, Mailspeed Marine sells chandlery online and by mail order. The company provides marine supplies including sailing clothing, deck shoes, yacht chandlery, marine electronics, inflatable boats, outboard engines and other sailing equipment.

Pirates Cave claims to be the largest chandler in Kent.
