We try to use couriers who offer both an economic and a careful service. Unfortunately, all couriers have different price structures, and most charge significantly more to deliver to some areas of the UK including the Channel Islands, Isle of Wight, Scottish Highlands and Islands and Northern Ireland. We continually review our couriers and their charges to try to ensure we offer the best service for our customers, irrespective of location.

Useful Information

You will receive an email to confirm that your order has been dispatched.

Tracking updates will be sent by the courier, or enter the order number into Track Order to access the tracking reference.

Orders that are dispatched from multiple locations may arrive separately, but you will only pay one delivery charge.

All delivery times are subject to stock availability, delivery location and weather conditions. We hold 15,000 items in stock and have thousands more available to us, but if we are unable to supply or deliver, we will contact you to discuss alternatives or to arrange a refund.

Orders are accepted at the point of dispatch. We reserve the right to cancel orders for any reason up to the point of goods being shipped.

Delivery FAQs

All deliveries should be signed-for, and we strongly recommend that someone is present to meet the courier to ensure that the delivery arrives in good condition.

If you think the goods have been damaged by the courier (eg the box is damaged), please tell the courier when you sign for the item and ensure they log the complaint. See below for returns.

We may dispatch your order in more than one delivery.

If items you’ve ordered are out of stock, we will contact you to arrange an alternative or to offer a refund.

Cancelling Dispatched Orders

You have the right to cancel your order provided that you notify us in writing no later than 30 days after the day on which you receive the products.

In the UK, delivery charge refunds are only made in accordance with your legal rights under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 and other applicable legislation. Where applicable, YouBoat will refund the base delivery cost, and not any enhanced charges that the customer has opted for. Similar rights may apply for some international deliveries.

We will refund your return postage only when a product is faulty, incorrect or damaged, not when a product is simply unwanted.

Returned Deliveries

If an order is returned to us because the courier was unable to deliver after 2-3 attempts due to nobody being at the address or business being closed, you will not be refunded your postage costs.

We will contact you to arrange a new delivery.


We are happy to refund or exchange a product provided it is returned to us within 30 days in a fully resalable condition. Resaleable means new and unused condition in the original packaging with YouBoat or Nick Cox labelling attached.

We reserve the right to refuse a refund or exchange on the item for products returned that are not in a saleable condition. We are unable to accept any returns of cut rope or any other bespoke items.
