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 craft. In-house expertise extends to a fully equipped machine shop, capable of undertaking most conventional turning, 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.
