May 2020    Bennett Trim Tabs now at Tenob!

Bennett are the world’s premier manufacturer of trim tabs. They have over 60 years of reliability and performance that built their reputation.

Tenob Wholesale Marine are fast approaching their 50th anniversary so it seemed a great fit to have two firms of their stature working together. Tenob are now distributors of the full range of Bennett products.

While most know Bennett for their hydraulic tabs, it is electric rams that have dominated the trailer boat and small launch market in recent years. Bennett have a fabulous range of electric tabs called BOLT. You will love the ease of installation and their reliability.

The BOLT range includes edge mount tabs which you will appreciate if space above the ram is limited. Their lower profile makes it possible to fit tabs to craft with portafino sterns or other obstructions.

The Bennett range also includes two control options, one of which includes tab retractors.

Tenob will stock a range of the most popular Bennett electric and hydraulic tabs while any other model from their range will be available to order.

January 2019   Moeller Bow Fuel Tank


Finding ways to handle fuel storage aboard small boats can be difficult, with so many items demanding space. Moeller recognised the problem then designed this clever bow tank, built to fit forward on most small boats. The tank is strongly built, in keeping with the Moeller reputation for superb fuel tanks, holds 22.7 litres and includes a gauge. It is ideal for many boat types, including inflatables, alloy dinghies, small fibreglass craft and yachts carrying an outboard for auxiliary propulsion. It also helps to shift weight forward, which can make a huge, positive difference to the trim of small craft carrying just one person.

December 2018   StopGull does What it Says!

The scourge of defaecating seabirds has plagued mariners forever. There are some pretty ineffectual and often downright ugly options used to keep the birds off the decks of the boat.


StopGull is not one of those! The standard StopGull is a 1.8 metre rotating device that is designed to keep those annoying birds away. There are other versions, including the StopGull Air XL and the ultimate solution, the 7m StopGull Falcon!


Equally importantly, StopGull is a system and Tenob have a complete range of mounts and accessories available to suit nearly any possible situation. That even includes inflatable boats.


Most of the range can be found on the Tenob website with technical information available at

June 2018    Quick Bow Thruster Kits


Bow thrusters are becoming an important and integral component for boats of all sizes. The ability to move on or off a tight mooring position, to aid maneuverability of a single-engine craft or even to increase control of the boat while chasing down gamefish in reverse, make bow thruster indispensable. Bow thrusters will improve your control and add value to your investment.


Quick bow thrusters have gained a reputation for reliability and performance. Their extensive range of thruster sizes, plus Quick installation accessories, means there are few limits to installing them into any craft.


That flexibility is particularly important when retrofitting to existing boats.


To make it even easier Tenob have created Quick bow thruster kits. Now you have a complete solution that includes the tube and control panel.


Information on the kits can be found on the Tenob website while further details and specifications can be found in the Tenob Technical Catalogue at

July 2016    Quick LED Lighting – the Range Grows Further!


Quick are world leaders in marine and RV lighting; you need only check their range of exceptional LED lights to see that. The company produces more than 200 variations across a wide range of styles. The options include downlights, surface mount, wall mount and courtesy lights. There are also underwater, strip, retractable and reading lights. In fact, Quick have a light for nearly every purpose.


There is a range of dimmers to match the lights as well as an RGB strip option. Many of the lights are bi-colour, giving general illumination plus either red or blue courtesy lighting, all in one unit. Most have the option of being supplied with either of two LED colours; warm white or daylight white.


But there is even more to the Quick range!


Apart from powerful underwater and other specific-purpose lights, there are also some very clever designs; from the simple Eyelid, an easy to install courtesy light that requires no large holes for installation, to the Dress-up which is a lighting bar for wardrobes that you can hang your clothes on!


Perhaps most special of all is the Secret Light which is a 360-degree vertical light that retracts back into a horizontal surface, completely protecting it and hiding it from view.

June 2014      New Owners for Tenob Wholesale Marine

Tenob Wholesale Marine was founded in 1973 and the company has long been regarded as a reputable distributor of marine products. One of the company’s greatest claims to fame is the widely-acclaimed Tenob rise and fall bracket. The bracket is now available in several models and is distributed around the world. Since 1990 Tenob has grown exponentially through strong management and good acquisitions, including the purchase of plastics manufacturer ECL Products.

In 2014 Danny Bassi, one of the founding directors of long-established and highly regarded marine distributor, Marine Direct Ltd. purchased 100% of that company and became the managing director. Soon after, he astounded the local market by purchasing the even longer established Tenob Wholesale Marine.

The joint entity continues to trade as Tenob Wholesale Marine. Bassi has retained every one of the staff from both companies, and has already increased distribution due to the economy of scale and the extra opportunities now afforded those suppliers already enjoying an established relationship..
