Marine aftermarket accessories provider Harvey Westbury Corp. said West Marine will sell the company's Garry's Royal Satin marine waxes and cleansers through its website and national catalog.

Previously, Harvey Westbury's products were carried at West Marine retail stores solely in the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The largest boating supply retailer in the United States has now agreed to nationally warehouse Garry's Royal Satin Marine & RV One-Step Cream Paste and Liquid Cleaner/Waxes so that any of its retail stores across the country can order the products upon customer request.
