About Us

Cambrian Marine Centre is a trusted family run business run by Nigel Hemming and his son James. Throughout his life Nigel has run many local businesses in West Wales including a greengrocers shops and garden centre.  In 1980 his father purchased 38 acres of land on the Cardigan Bay coast close to the harbour town of Aberaeron and Nigel began selling trailers.  With such a fantastic coastal location and as the lure of messing around on boats proved irresistible he began selling boats on a brokerage basis. 

In 2008 the shop was opened selling caravan accessories to touring caravan owners visiting Cardigan Bay, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire. The shop also sells an expanding range of chandlery items as over the years boating, kayaking and water recreation has grown in popularity and Cardigan Bay has become a sought after destination.

Following Nigel’s son James graduating from Haverfordwest College with a City and Guilds NVQ in Marine Engineering, he joined the family business, which then expanded again to include boat engine servicing and repairs and servicing outboard engines. We have close links with many of the local fishing community and also the Dolphin and Wildlife Tour boats in New Quay and Cardigan and the Sailing Clubs in New Quay and Tenby.  Our team has expanded to include 4 engineers and we offer mobile servicing and repairs as well as our on-workshop.

The business has grown rapidly in recent years and we are recognised and appreciated for our professionalism and attention to detail and personal touch. Cambrian Marine Centre are the local dealers for Honda, Suzuki, Mariner (Mercury) and Tohatsu as well as Extreme Trailers.

Now we just need to wait a decade or so to see if either of James’s sons have inherited a love of boats and the sea and will continue the family business into the future!
