Axopar breaking records… Chasing Canguro
June 1, 2018
AXOPAR AND MERCURY JOIN THE PRINCIPALITY OF MONACO AS PARTNERS OF CHASING CANGURO
The Eyachts team is excited to announce that Axopar will be assisting in a record breaking attempt…
Here is what you need to know…
Chasing Canguro is Alex Luther’s journey to attempt his late grandfather’s greatest achievement; a world record 5,010 kilometre marathon water-ski. In 1970, Harry Luther achieved this still-unbroken record in 10 days, 5 hours, and 36 minutes.
Eyachts is proud to say that Axopar and Mercury Marine were chosen to partner with the Chasing Canguro team. The team stated that in order to achieve success, having a well-built and reliable boat is paramount.
The award-winning Axopar 37 R Sun Top, capable of handling all types of water conditions and powered with the latest Mercury twin Verado 300hp V8 engines, will take the team from Tangier, Morocco along the coastlines of Spain, France, Monaco, Italy and Croatia, and back to the finishing line at Cervia, Italy.
In 1969, Mercury provided Harry Luther with twin Mercury 100 HP engines to put on his boat Miss Pepsi, the first twin rig boat to compete in water-ski racing in Australia.
The Luther / Mercury history continues 49 years on; Alex is thrilled Mercury wants to re-create Luther family history with him: “together with Axopar, we have the perfect combination in place to set the team up for success in the anticipated conditions; with both reliability and the ultimate in performance assured by the Mercury twin engines.”
