Why Us

Born out of a passion for marine engineering, Managing Director Nick Nutt installed his first Bennett Trim Tab in the early 1990’s whilst working at Princess Yachts, then called Marine Projects. Nick became the Bennett Guru within the factory and started training other engineers. Early on Nick recognised the Bennett Trim Tab design was ahead of its time and it transformed the handling of the luxury Princess Motor Yachts he was working on.

Trim Tabs Direct have supplied, installed and serviced 1000’s of boats, what we don’t know about trim tabs and hatch lifters isn’t worth knowing. We only work with the best brands and as a result we invest heavily in training, technical support and good advice. Trim Tabs Direct are UK based, operating out of state of the art modern offices and workshops in the southwest of England. We operate mobile installation teams throughout the UK and abroad. Whether its supply & fit or just supply, every piece of equipment sold is backed by a professional & knowledgeable support team.

Our turn key operation and mobile time-served professional tradesmen and dedicated craftsmen offer the convenience of coming to your boat at its home berth or wherever it is lying. If you need equipment quickly you’ll be glad to know we hold stock and most shipments can be dispatched to you on the same day. If you need installation, these are planned and are installed sympathetically with the boat.
