How it all started

The founder of Beau Marine, Mark Beauchamp began sailing in the 50’s and saw many changes and developments in the boating industry. He became quite aware of the rising cost of marine equipment over the years.

When Mark first looked at his options for buying a furler, he was surprised by the high price and low quality of some furlers. Following extensive research, he decided to expand his existing marine business to include the manufacture of Code Zero and Top-down furling systems for yachts.
