Welcome to Bill Higham Marine

Bill Higham Marine is a warm and welcoming family run business with over 40 year's experience and knowledge when it comes to the world of boats and outboards.

Our North Wales branch stocks a huge variety of new and used outboard engines and motors from the biggest names in the business such as Mariner, Tohatsu, Yamaha, Suzuki, Mercury and Honda, and our prices are consistently competitive in order to offer you the very best deal available in the UK.

Our Manchester branch specialises in keeping a wealth of spare parts for sale, as well as a stock of used boats and outboards, all of which are comprehensively serviced before the handover. Our used engines may not be the cheapest pre-owned outboards for sale, but we test, check and service each and every one to such an extent that we ensure that when you receive the engine, it will run and sound like new, with 3-month parts and labour warranty to boot!

Outboard engine sales

We’ve been selling new and used outboard motors for over forty years, Simon Higham at the Bill Higham Marine North Wales branch should be your first point of contact when looking for a new or pre-owned outboard engine, he spends all day every day speaking to people just like you, finding out your specific needs, and tailoring an engine perfectly to your application. If we don’t have an engine to suit then no problem, we’ll tell you, our advice is free! But with a stock of over 200 used outboards and 300 new outboards at any one time, it’s unlikely we won't have just the thing for you. When it comes to new and used outboard engine sales, Bill Higham Marine is simply the biggest name in the business!


Inflatable Boat Sales

In 2006 we designed a range of inflatable boats, the remit was simple, to improve on the best that was available at the time, so we looked at the great airdeck inflatable boats made by Quicksilver, the tough heavy duty inflatables from Bombard, avon and Zodiac and looked what made these boats so good, and what could be improved. Then we sat down with a draftsman and set about creating the concept of Seapro inflatable boats. They were an immediate success, and over the intervening years, we have been tweaking the design for extra longevity, better performance and improving ease of use. We thought we had it dialled in perfectly until in 2014 we discovered a German boat fabric called Valmex. It isn’t very well known as it is very expensive, but in various thicknesses and textures, it has the best tear, tensile and abrasion strength of any like PVC on the market. Oh, and it’s also UV proof - something that no other PVC claims to be. So it is perfect for use in hot climates such as can be found in the Mediterranean. Naturally, since then all of our new inflatable boats for sale have been manufactured using this fantastic product. So I suppose what we are saying is that unlike a standard retailer when we say we know a thing or two about Inflatable Boats, we really do know a thing or two about inflatable boats.
