The Peel Engineering Company was a manufacturing company based on the Isle of Man that primarily made fibreglass boats through its subsidiary company West Marine Ltd and fairings for motorcycles.[1] They were also responsible for the Peel Manxcar, Peel P50, and Peel Trident microcars, in addition to the Peel Viking Sport and prototype GRP Minis for BMC. These models constitute the only automobiles manufactured on the Isle of Man; the company halted their manufacture in 1969.

A limited-run Peel Manxkart go-kart was also produced.
