About Barton Marine

barton logo

Barton Marine was founded in 1948 by Whitstable Shipwright and boat builder Ron Barton.   Since its inception, Barton has become a world leader in the manufacture of yachting blocks, line handling systems and general marine hardware with agents in 32 different countries and their equipment is used as standard on many new vessels.

After an absence from the Australian market for a number of years, in 2010 Denman Marine became Barton's Australian agent not only utilising their products on our own vessels but providing marine hardware solutions Australia wide. 

Barton Marine has a fantastic  range of marine hardware and some really innovative and award winning products such as the Clamseal, Barton Boom strut and their wide range of Barton Blocks.

To view the full Barton product range please visit their website here or alternatively view their product catalogue here.

Please note; we have a new website under construction with shopping cart functionality and will start adding items from the Barton product line-up as soon as we can to improve your experience. In the mean-time, if you are looking for a cost effective marine hardware solution for your vessel please contact us to discuss your requirements. 

Trade and bulk volume enquiries welcome.
