Axopar & Mercury partner with Chasing Canguro for world record attempt
Four weeks out from commencing the world record attempt, the Chasing Canguro team is pleased to announce our final partners – Axopar a Finnish brand of premium motorboats, and Mercury Marine – the world’s leading manufacturer of recreational marine propulsion engines. The award-winning Axopar 37 R Sun Top, capable of handling all conditions, will be powered by the latest Mercury twin Verado 300hp V8 engines.
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 in 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.”
Following in his grandfather’s footsteps, a determined Australian and his family tackle an epic 3700km ski marathon across the Mediterranean. It started with faded clippings in an old scrapbook and ended seven years later with an epic waterski marathon across the Mediterranean Sea. “It feels surreal, I still feel like it’s a dream. I feel like I’ve not only followed in Harry’s footsteps and chased him over the last 10 days, but also created a new journey that maybe one day my family will recreate.”
