An insight in to Watermota’s Workshop
June 7, 2019

Watermota, suppliers of engine room packages to the marine industry since 1911, are preparing for the upcoming Seawork exhibition on 11 – 13th June in Southampton. A brand new stand, for this year, will be displaying the popular Doosan 4L126 engine with LCD Instrument panel together with the DI-DMT170HL gearbox and D-I DP087 twin output power take off. A range of pumps and parts will be displayed which are available to buy on the website and there will be exclusive show offers available.  

Seawork is a ‘one stop shop’ for buyers, providing access to the commercial marine and workboat markets. It is the largest European commercial marine exhibition held at the prestigious Mayflower Park venue in Southampton.

For over 21 years Seawork has offered a unique combination of undercover exhibition space, open air demonstrations and floating displays.

James Wyatt, Sales Manager, said, “As Seawork is one of the biggest expo’s in the World, this is a fantastic event for our company. We are able to showcase our global partners and our range of products enabling visitors to understand our engine package capabilities. One of the other main reasons for Watermota to attend every year is to catch up with our existing contacts and create new relationships within our supply chain.”

The event has a packed programme of conferences, events, demos and competitions which provide a productive background buzz throughout Seawork’s fully occupied exhibition and display areas. This year, Alison Merrick, Managing Director of Watermota, will be attending the networking event, sponsored by Barton Marine, celebrating women in the marine industry on Wednesday 12th June. Speakers include Sue Terpilowski OBE who is the Chair of the Maritime UK Women’s Task Group and President of Women in Shipping and Trade UK as well as Zella Compton, a well-known writer, who’s career has spanned all areas of writing from plays, books and poetry through to journalism.

Alison said, “This event is an ideal opportunity for women working in the marine industry to meet and learn about key developments within the sector. It is a chance to discuss challenges and personal goals with my peers who understand the demands of working in the sector.”
