Located in Yarmouth, an historic and beautiful harbour town on the western side of the Isle of Wight, sits Harwoods of Yarmouth. Established in 1893 as an ironmongery and forge, Harwoods has moved with the times and is now the largest chandlery store in the West Wight.

We stock most of the leading marine brands such as Barton Marine, Holt, Harken and Spinlock and hold a good range of products that suit all requirements and pockets. With our knowledge of sailing and boating there isn’t much we can’t help you with.

As well as our large range of chandlery, marine clothing and footwear, we also sell fashion clothing and shoes for men, women and children.

Not content with being just a chandlers we also have tools, ironmongery, toys, fishing tackle and bait, charcoal and kitchenware. Of course theres a whole list of things we haven’t mentioned, so if you can’t see it on the site – just give us a call.

Environmental Statement

We are pledging to become more sustainable and environmentally conscious. In-store we are nearly finished switching to LED lighting. We now only use paper bags and sustainably dispose of all shop waste.

We are also striving to stock sustainable brands and products
