Our Seaton shop has now re-opened following a good spring clean. A short 4 day window was just the right amount of time to give the shop some thoroughly deserved TLC. With additional lighting, a fresh lick of paint and a deep carpet clean was just what the shop required. Ideal preparation for launching the New Spring 2013 range at Jimmy Green. That’s right, Spring is coming (despite the freezing north easterlies of late).
We’ve re-vamped the range and brought in a whole host of new brands to keep the shop fresh for the spring. New Brands include Lazy Jacks, Eucalyptus, Quiksilver Womens (different to Roxy and entirely new!), Chaco and a new Chatham Shoe range. Plus don’t forget the old favourites, including Animal, Old Guys Rule, Reef, Billabong, Fit Flop and more.
So come visit us for a sneeky peek at what’s on offer. Don’t forget to ask in store about our loyalty cards. We’ll give you gift vouchers whenever you’ve spent over a certain amount. Just our little way of saying thank you.

Following constructive dialogue with Yachting Monthly, all parties involved have agreed to release this joint statement.
“In our recent test of anchor chain (January 2013 issue), Yachting Monthly failed to offer Jimmy Green Marine the opportunity to explain why a sample of its chain performed relatively poorly in the test. We now understand that this chain sample was sent in error and should not have been part of our test. Indeed, it was part of an old batch that Jimmy Green had decided not to sell at all, due to concerns about quality control, from a supplier that the firm has not used for several years.
It would have been fairer to Jimmy Green, and more useful for our readers, if we had asked the company to explain the test results before we went to press. We now wish to clarify that Jimmy Green has been selling only premium-quality Grade 40 chain, manufactured in house by Maggi Catena, for a considerable time before the article was published.
In response to the article, Jimmy Green Marine published a series of counter-claims relating to Yachting Monthly and the author of the article, Vyv Cox, on its website and in its customer newsletter. Jimmy Green now accepts that there were some inaccuracies in their counter claims and that Mr Cox’s conduct has been diligent and fair.”
Please feel free to get in touch with any questions.
