Shakespeare® Marine brings manufacturing back to the UK

Shakespeare® Marine – the world leader in marine antenna design – announces it is bringing manufacturing back to the UK for a selection of its best-selling VHF antennas.


Effective immediately, Shakespeare® Marine will begin manufacturing four of its best-selling VHF antennas in the UK, catering for the growing demand across the country. Suitable for all boats from small craft vessels to large commercial ships, Shakespeare’s VHF antennas are the go-to product to keep both professionals and enthusiasts connected when out at sea, by utilising the essential VHF marine radio frequency.


The four antennas being made in the company’s Lancashire factory are the 427-N 1.5m VHF antenna with Nylon Ferrule, the 427-S 1.5m VHF with Stainless Steel ferrule, 5101-S 2.4m VHF with Stainless Steel ferrule; a high gain powerboat antenna and the 1.5m 427-N-KIT VHF Antenna with 4186 Nylon ratchet mount, which makes lowering the antenna quick and easy.

Dave Manasseh, European Sales Manager for Shakespeare Marine, comments, “We are delighted to be bringing the manufacturing of our four most popular antennas back to the UK. This move ensures we can offer the best quality engineering and a more streamlined distribution across Europe, whilst utilising our Great British manufacturing expertise and capabilities.”


As part of the brand’s reorganisation, Shakespeare® also announces a change to its distribution channels in the UK, exclusively supplying its award-winning antennas through two UK-based distributors: Meridian Zero Distribution Ltd and SMG Distribution Ltd. This change in distribution will ensure efficient delivery times for customers, as well as unparalleled expertise and knowledge.
