Going extra miles

Every contributor to the project can be regarded as a sponsor, howsoever they assist. But specifically on this page, we are spotlighting the firms that have between them provided almost all of the materials, equipment, manufacturing skills and specialist services and facilities that have enabled us to reach the point we are at now.

The specialised equipment and facilities required to build a boat as sophisticated as Quicksilver would have cost several million pounds, and it made no economic sense for us to raise such huge investment for a one-off boat. Alternatively, paying for the assistance we needed would still have required a very substantial sum of money, and this did not appear to us to be the right option. So instead, we do the background preparation, conduct exhaustive research and development work and generate the appropriate designs and technical specifications, then we turn to those who are already geared-up for it to provide the things we need, as a form of sponsorship.

With the benefit of their state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities and specialist expertise they've accumulated over many years, we are able to produce a boat affordably that has top quality as standard.

We have also had the benefit of supporting services ranging from graphic-design, website creation and event organisation to catering, logistical operations and storage. And all this, too, has come from professionals who know their specific businesses inside out and have been willing to assist us in our quest.

Wide-reaching collaboration built a strong project to create a world-class craft.
