The British Marine Electronics Association was formed more than twenty five years ago and has updated its name and logo to both reflect the increasing scope and diversity of our members as well as to embody the strengths and benefits of the British Marine Federation, of which BMEEA is a member.  


The roots of the BMEA go back much further to when a group of marine electronic specialists got together in the Sixties to swap ideas and was known as META (Marine Electronics Trade Association).  


That informal gathering has now grown into a well respected organisation with over 90 members including manufacturers and waterside dealers, who specialise in the installation and maintenance of marine electrical and electronic systems

What we do for the industry

Purchasing marine electrical equipment or electronics for your boat can be a difficult decision·   

  • You want to make sure you get the very best advice
  • You want the most reliable and intuitive equipment     
  • You want equipment installed and commissioned – ready to use 

The BMEEA leads the way with members trained to internationally adopted standards and to a standard Code of Practice 

Why Use A BMEEA Member?

Not all installers will follow factory guidelines, they may not use approved materials, correct size cables or install correct fusing.  


They may not commission the system or calibrate the equipment correctly.  


Not all installers will offer a warranty on their workmanship or installation. 


BMEEA approved Dealers and Installers are selected because they WILL do the job professionally and correctly.
