Allen Sailboat Performance Hardware is made for high performance dinghy, skiff, sports boat and smaller yachts.
Allen Brothers Ltd has evolved over the last 60 years into a modern high-tech company and although they haven’t strayed far from their roots they are now much more than a manufacturer. It was in 1956 that brothers Tony and Glenn Allen received their first order from Jack Holt for the aluminium die-cast cam cleats they had originally made for themselves and their friends and was the beginning of Holt-Allen’s 50 year partnership. In 2008 Allen Brothers created their own brand, adding the sales, marketing and warehousing operations to distribute the Allen sailboat performance hardware around the world.
The Allen Catalogue and Tech sheets can be found in our Allen Buying Guides.
