Company History

Seafarer International, LLC was formed in 2005 by the former President and CEO of Standard Communications Corp., Ron Blanchard. Standard was a leader in the marine industry with it's Horizon brand of products beginning in 1969. The marine division of Standard was sold to Yaesu in 1999 and continues today as Standard Horizon under the ownership of Vertex Standard.

In 1987, Standard Communications Corp. purchased Seafarer International Limited in Poole, England. Ron worked with the company to update product lines and adapt to a positive strategy for the future. Standard's ultimate owner required that the company be sold, and in 1990 it was sold. Seafarer products continue to have a strong brand recognition in the UK and throughout the world.

Today, Seafarer's mission is to provide excellent quality products at exceptional value with superb customer service.
