Smye-Rumsby Ltd

Every boat needs good electrical / electronic engineer.I came across Smye Rumsby in 2018 and they were so good that they became the major factor for choosing place for winterising my boat.This winter we had several items ready for upgrade: Wind Generator, Auto Pilot, Echo Sounder and plethora of small electrical jobs.Smye Rumsby team delivered on time and ...with a smile. You feel that you are being looked after.Our boat sails around Europe and it is extremely important for me to have "after sale support" - Philip and his engineers do just that. Wherever in the world I can make a phone call and get advice, support , assistance. One example: my VHF radio "packed up" while racing in RB&I race. Smye Rumsby sourced best for my boat, getting very good price and dispatched it to the marina ahead of my arrival to Ireland.This is what I call SERVICE.

Smye-Rumsby has been outstanding. There ability to listen to our requirements has stood them apart from many other suppliers. The planning process was detailed which I found very reassuring. I would not hesitate to recommend Smye-Rumsby for their quality of service and knowledge about their industry

The range and clarity of the radios are excellent, which is crucial: if people don’t think the message will reach the intended recipient then they won’t be used. The fact that all staff are using the radios on a regular basis demonstrates the effectiveness of the system. So far, we have found the radios to be more reliable than mobile phones in many instances. The ability to switch from the main network to a radio-to-radio channel adds a reliable back-up option for teams to stay in contact with each other, even if they are in a signal ‘black spot.’ Smye-Rumsby have provided an excellent service throughout the process, in particular, allowing us to demo the radios over a couple of weeks to test their effectiveness and range across the whole farm
