Will depend purely on budget really, Choice between Yuasa/Bosch/Lucas/Varta as top/better brands. Have a look on Tayna batteries, they sell to public at trade price pretty much and deliver to your door

Hope that helps?

I’ve got Varta batteries on my boat, lasted a few years and are good kit. 
 

Tanya batteries are good, excellent price and next day delivery to your house which is helpful 🙂 

To dispose of your old batteries, take them to a scrap yard. Most will give you a few quid for them. Saves taking them to the tip or worse, ATS/Halfords which charge you to dispose of them 😮

Another vote for Tayna.

And also agree about taking your old batteries to the scrappy. They'll usually pay you for them, and I use the proceeds to re-buy clean scrap lead to melt into weights.

Been chatting batteries with JonC, the yuasa ybx5623/5625/5627 look good, add the word marine on the side and pay another £100..... As with everything all comes down to budget, but you will be in the £200 range for good quality high capacity batteries

Probably get a better deal if you ask to swap, no cash involved

Mine don't deal in cash these days. It's all gone to bank transfers as it's more traceable. Something to do with reducing metal thefts. They have to account for the transaction when I weigh anything in, and they have to show a payment out. I then have to buy scrap lead for the same amount, or close to.
