Important – Distance Selling Regulations
Under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, you have the right to cancel a contract within fourteen days – starting from the day after you take delivery of the goods (a “cooling off” period). You have the right to cancel for any reason without penalty.
If you wish to cancel a contract, please write, email or call and clearly state your full details, invoice number and cancellation instructions. To cancel the contract, you must give us notice within seven working days starting from the day after you take delivery of the order.
Once you have cancelled the contract, you have a legal “duty of care” to take care of the goods. You must return the goods to us at your expense to the address above in the condition that the items were delivered to you.
If it is more convenient, we can arrange collection by our couriers; any costs incurred will be deducted from your final refund. We will refund you the full amount paid for the goods, less any costs to collect the goods, within 30 working days of receipt of the notice of cancellation, provided the items have been returned to us in that time period.
Use of the bought items or removal of sealed packaging (not including the delivery packaging) will terminate your “Right to cancel” immediately.
Refunds may not be given in the following circumstances:
i) Where an order has been placed with specific requirements (such as dinghy covers, cutting of lengths of rope or wire).
ii) Return of flammable or pressurised items
iii) Return of second hand boats.
