Membership Types

British Marine offers five membership levels. Our core package benefit is included on all membership packages and presents exceptional value with our 'digital 1st' entry tier, 'Access', available from only £240 per year + VAT.

British Marine Membership Benefits

Access

Our entry-level digital membership package, Access, is designed for those who haven’t been members of British Marine before and is well-suited to sole traders and SMEs. You will receive all the core benefits membership brings, including critical intelligence on a range of business-related topics, helpful online resources, invitations to our networking and other UK events, as well as a discount on exhibitor space for Southampton International Boat Show. You can also join one of our 11 regional associations and one of our 16 group associations and have your voice heard on a national level. 

Classic

Our Classic membership package is perfect for businesses that are keen to grow and are looking for a small amount of one-on-one support. Classic offers all the same benefits as our Access package but with one key advantage. With a Classic membership, our team of specialists are on hand to support you with bespoke advice relating to training, representation, health and safety and a range of technical-related topics. This level also includes membership to one regional and two group associations. 

Classic +

Designed for businesses with an international ambition, Classic + builds on the opportunities within our Classic membership with double the amount of time you can use to support your specific business challenges and opportunities through our team of specialist experts. You also receive access to our research findings, giving you a clearer picture of the trends impacting the global marine industry. Finally, with Classic + you will be invited to join one regional and three group associations, as well as our international events – providing cost-effective opportunities to expand your audience around the globe. 

Enterprise

With our Enterprise package, you will be able to leverage the full suite of British Marine member benefits, have comprehensive one-on-one support from our team and ensure your interests and concerns are understood at the highest levels of government. Our experienced experts are on hand to support you across your business with a number of support hours allocated to each topic, covering everything from technical and legal to manufacturing and HR. Enterprise members are also able to join one regional and four group associations without any additional cost. 

Enterprise +

Enterprise + is geared towards the largest marine-based businesses in the UK. Most applicable for those with an existing global footprint or strong international growth objectives, Enterprise + provides the highest level of one-to-one support. As an Enterprise + member, our team will work with you to support unique challenges and opportunities, with detailed assistance available for anything from the impact of new legislation to the latest technical standards. Enterprise + also offers access to the greatest number of group associations, with five included as standard in addition to the one regional.
