About Lancing Marine
Lancing Marine are a company with many years experience

‘70s, through the Ford range of petrol and diesel engines, the
New Holland tractor engines, and over 60 other engine types,
together with the application of those engines to a wide
variety of marine transmissions. Their engine marinisation
and aftermarket marinising kits make use of the popularly
available Jabsco and Bowman products and a variety of
Lancing Marine specialised castings, together with many
components from commercially available sources in the
automotive and industrial worlds.
The Lancing Marine team is headed by Mike Bellamy who
founded the business in 1970, and has extensive experience
In circuit and offshore powerboat racing both as a competitor,
as a team manager, and as an organiser.
For many years he has run a succession of cruising
powerboats that have gained him valuable experience in the
development of new Lancing Marine product lines.
His interest in performance powercraft led him to develop the
Lancing Marine propeller computer programme, now one of
the most widely used boat speed and propeller calculation
systems in the world.
Sales director is Mark Dooley who trained with Watercraft
Ltd., originally as a boatbuilder and later as a drawing office
technician, before joining Lancing Marine in 1985. His keen
interest in many forms of watersports, including water-skiing,
diving and offshore sailing enable him to give valuable advice
and prompt service to clients with many different types of
In-house expertise extends to a fully equipped machine

milling, drilling and grinding operations at tolerances right up
to toolroom standards.
Lancing Marine’s extensive chain of expert sub-contractors
cover several diverse fields, including heavy steel fabrication,
gear-cutting, diesel injection equipment repair, heat
treatment, grinding and metal finishing, to name but a few.
This large field of experience means that Lancing Marine can
undertake a wide range of supplies ranging from supply of
minor components, to the shipping of what eventually turns
out to be a complete D-I-Y kit for a boatyard to mechanically
fit out a yacht or motor cruiser.
