The Countdown has begun...

Team Britannia is a multi-million pound British bid led by ocean adventurer Alan Priddy to design and build the fastest and most fuel-efficient wave-slicing powerboat to circumnavigate the globe for the much coveted UIM world record, currently held by New Zealander Pete Bethune at 60 days 23 hours 49 minutes.

Construction of the boat started at the beginning of June 2016, and the important hurdle of turning the boat over was passed at the beginning of December. Completion of the boat, which includes attaching the wheelhouse, flybridge and decks, along with fuel tanks, engines, jet drives and interior fittings, will continue into early 2017. The countdown timer above is counting down to the day we expect the boat to be launched, after which there will be a programme of sea trials and record attempts prior to the circumnavigation itself.
