About Penguin Engineering

Penguin Engineering has been actively trading since 1982, specialising in high quality and technically innovative equipment which ‘civilises’ yachts and boats. It has been based entirely in Hayling Island though it has moved three times to increasing larger premises in that time.
The company has been a long term supplier to the entire yacht and boat builder industry in the United Kingdom.

Founded on making Italian products available, more recently the range has extended to include French manufactured items.

Typically the range includes specialised versions of standard ‘household’ items such as stainless steel sinks, but with dimensions and characteristics more appropriate to their marine usage. The products have therefore found much wider application ranging from hotels, restaurants, government buildings and night clubs to dental surgeries, horse boxes and Formulae One base vehicles.

The operation remains a family owned and run business, maintaining a reputation for a high level of quality in all aspects of the operation from intelligent telephone answering to close on 100% right first time deliveries in quick time.

We distribute quality Italian and French manufactured equipment primarily for the marine industry, but also for other commercial projects such as hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and offices.

For taps, sinks, showers, cooker, hobs and BBQs, water filters, calorifiers, bilge switches or pedestals, we are the people you need to speak to. We offer good sound practicable advice from over 25 years experience in the marine industry.

Our Teak Wonder range is principally marketed for teak decks, but can also be used on other external teak and hardwood such as garden furniture. This treatment has been around over 30 years and has proven itself as one of the best treatments for teak decks.

Boat water heaters, or calorifiers as you may know them come in different models, we stock a full stainless steel range and can supply twin coil calorifiers and also electric only water heaters.

We have a large range of marine sinks of all different sizes and styles. We can offer satin finish sinks or luxurious mirror finished polished style sinks with either flat flange or an over surface mounting flange. In the range we have double sinks, single inset sinks, cylindrical sinks, oval sinks and hemispherical sinks.

Taps & showers on board your boat are one of the things that everybody notices. We offer good quality marine chrome on brass taps specifically designed for use while sailing. We have a range of marine taps to suit everybody's own style and needs, whether you would like a folding spout, pull out shower head or a water saving device. We also have a large range of marine showers with small bore hose to reduce the water flow. We also sell replacement parts for our products in the event of anything going wrong over time.

We import Atlas Filtri water filters which can be used in marine or domestic environments. They come in two sizes, 5 inch and 10 inch. Depending on how dirty or clean the water is that you have passing through your system we have a single filter unit and a double filter unit. Replacement filters can filter the water down to 0.45 microns with a ceramic filter. We also have our more standard carbon filter which filters down to 25 microns.

Our range of Struts and Table/Chair Pedestals is constantly expanding and offers a large range when it comes to styling preference and measurements. We have units that are removable for easy storage, pedestals which work through the floor, units with one, two and three stage pedestals, gas powered, manual and also electric.
