Where to buy marine wire?

I've seen a couple of recommendations for places to buy marine grade wire, but can't find the post now. Do you know how many places the word wire shows up in a search???

Re: Where to buy marine wire?

I buy from these guys on Amazon. Free shipping. I ordered on Monday and got the wire delivered to my front door on Wednesday. Top notch wire. Was working on the boat that same weekend.

Re: Where to buy marine wire?

Here's another one: https://gregsmarinewiresupply.com/wire/

I've used both Greg's and BestBoatWire (AKA genuinedealz). BestBoat has a wider selection of wiring parts (fuse holders, switches, circuit breakers, etc), but I found that they were frequently out of the stuff I needed.

Greg's has a more limited selection but they were never out of stock.

I second genuinedealz.com. I have found them to be cheaper than Amazon and shipping in the US is free.

I'll put in a third recommendation for GenuineDealz. Shipping free, really fast service, quality products. What's not to like?

+1 for these guys shipped quickly and have good selection, will even make up custom size heavier gauge wire with custom connectors if you don't have tools/skills to crimp large gauge connectors.

Re: Where to buy marine wire?

I think all of these suppliers are the same guy. Notice they all seem to be located in Greenville, PA. So you can't go wrong! :-)

Re: Where to buy marine wire?

Road trip to Greenville!!
I ordered a full set of pre-measured battery room cables from GenuineDealz to rewire all of it and to add in an ACR. The cost was a fraction of what it would have cost me to do it myself at West Marine and the quality was unsurpassed. I just wish I had another project on the go so I could order from them again!
