Best Black Friday sailing deals
Brompton Folding e-bike
Brompton folding bicycles are de rigueur in many marinas, being hugely popular among cruisers for their ease of folding, reliable mechanism, as well as the freedom they offer to explore new destinations on arrival or simply make popping to the supermarket or marina office less time consuming.
The Brompton M2L s is the Rolls Royce of Bromptons, with an electric motor that offers 300wh of battery life, a 20-45 mile range, all for under 17.5 kilos of weight. A real game-changer for getting around, with a big Black Friday discount.
Was £3,069.99 | Now £2,455.99
Decathlon Axon electric folding bike
Although Brompton leads the field in folding bikes and has a solid reputation, the price (even with a Black Friday deal) can put people off – especially if you are looking to store you’r bike onboard and use it as a bit of a workhorse.
For a more affordable alternative, Decathlon has slashed the price of its Axon Eco Electric Folding Bike for Black Friday. It weighs in at just 15.5kg and has a 15-25km range for shorter trips.
Was £1,499 | Now £999

It’s not just folding bicycles that are buzzing around marinas these days – electric scooters have become a big trend among cruisers for nipping around port or into town (check local laws before use on public roads) The Pure Air Electric Scooter 2nd Gen is a proper ‘grown-ups’ scooter, capable of carrying an adult, with a rucksack, up a hill.
A 30km range on a single charge and 25km/h top speed means this scooter can be used for exploring or running errands. Waterproof design, folding steel frame and 10-inch wheels with air-filled tyres.

Decathlon touring stand up paddleboard
Paddleboards are essential items for many sailors, and offer a great way to explore anchorages or even make an easy to launch substitute for a dinghy tender when you need to get ashore on calm days.
Decathlon SUPs were already some of the best value entry level boards on the market, but this Black Friday deal takes a whopping £100 off. Inflates to a 15psi, making it better for relaxed paddling than serious mile covering, but at 11ft long and 34″ it will carry riders over 80kg.
Meanwhile, a maximum load of 320 kg makes it a great family board as it can be ridden two-up. Includes fin, ankle leash, pump and case. When deflated the bag measures 96x40x16 cm for stowing in a lazarette or deep locker.
