Marine vendors in Singapore

Over the course of working on my various boat maintenance and overhaul tasks, I’ve interacted with quite a few marine, hardware, and other vendors here in Singapore.  Partly for my own edification, but also because I’m often running into people looking for similar stuff, I’ve decided to keep a list of vendors in Singapore I like.

There is one other list I know of, which is quite good and has informed some of my own quests for parts or hardware.

    Hello Kris

    We are actually in Langkawi and plan to stop to Singapore on the way to Pacific ocean.
    Do you know a place to buy Hi tensil galvanized Short Link chain ?
    Here in Malaysia, it is so hard to find very good chain.
    Thank you for you answer.
    Regards
    Laurent

    • Laurent — I suggest checking with Marintech and Keng Wah (both on my list) as they are where I’ve bought chain. Not very sure about the short link chain, depending on how short you need, but if you contact them in advance I’m sure they can tell you. Cheers -Kris

    Good morning from Indonesia. My sailboat (B-Windi) is moored in Bali and as you may know it is difficult to find sailing boat parts in Bali. I need 3 and 5 amp fuses “U” shape part number 05 02 12154 made in Netherlands. Do you by chance know where I can purchase these in Singapore? I will be passing by Singapore on this 14th and could easely make my way to a shop if I new which one… You help would be apprecited. Regards Francisco

    • I suspect I’m a bit too late in responding, but if you happen to be in Singapore again, Sim Lim Tower is the best place to poke around for random electrical parts. Specific part numbers can be extremely hard to find though.
