The Royal Navy, Royal Marine ‘Arctic Quest 1832’ Expedition chose Mariner outboard engines to power two lightweight inflatable boats for their recent epic maritime adventure to the Arctic.
The team of six hand picked individuals, led by Dom Mee, former Royal Marine Commando, Maritime Explorer returned to Dom’s polar Mecca at the end of July 2004. In August 2003, Dom returned from a successful solo expedition in the High Arctic kayaking in the Northwest Passage, following in the footsteps of Victorian Explorer Sir John Ross. This time he chose to lead a much larger expedition and the team far exceeded all expectations for this project completing the journey in some of the worst conditions for sixty years. They found many artefacts relating to Sir John Ross’s original voyage and visited the High Arctic Harbour’s cataloguing their finds.
The Mariner engines had to withstand severe Arctic conditions, powering the inflatables through pack ice and some pretty hostile seas.
The boat and engine along with members of the expedition team will be on the Barrus stand, S2510 at the London Boat Show.
Sunseeker International, the country’s largest powerboat builder, has a hugely impressive showcase of motoryachts at the 2005 Schroder’s London International Boat Show on Stand Number: S2540 with a combined approximate value of just over £20 million.
The majority of Sunseeker’s breathtaking range of craft will be on display at the Show taking full advantage of the facilities offered at ExCel, including three craft on the water: the sophisticated 105 Yacht, the 94 Yacht and the 82 Yacht.
Sunseeker International were happy to help Dom Mee out giving them space along side these impressive class. Sunseeker have a long association with the Royal Marines as both are based at Poole in Dorset.
