Lancing Marine are approved marinisers of Ford diesel engines which are generally similar to engines in use in trucks, agricultural machinery and light vans, and so the basic mechanical parts are available as spares from Ford and New Holland dealers in most countries.
Marinisation makes use of well tried and proven Bowman and Jabsco products together with as many normal commercially available components as is possible.
All figures given are guaranteed accurate within 5%.

All engines are built for marine use with all new components, complete with full marinising equipment. Morse control connections, rubber mounts, exhaust water injection, start/run switch, warning lights and 4m wiring harness, connected at engine end, with plug and socket at panel end, terminated ready for instruments.
Horsepowers are measured at the crankshaft, and appropriate deduction must be made for transmission losses to assess nett shaft horsepower.
All engines include transmission adapters for any of our appropriate listed gearboxes, sterndrives, jet pumps or alternators together with the appropriate cooler.
All engines carry makers' warranty for 12 months.
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 standard.
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.
