The story so far...

MARTYN POTTER

Martyn started kayaking, dinghy sailing and windsurfing from about the age of 10. He soon progressed from lakes and inland waters to coastal.

He competed in dinghy racing as a teenager and was introduced to yachting by the London Sailing Project which is now the Rona Sailing project.

He has enjoyed power boating since he was 17 years old when he did his first RYA course. Although he enjoys yachting Martyn now spends the majority of his time on the water on RIB’s and powerboats. He is very experienced and proficient with a wide range of vessels. Martyn holds the RYA Advanced Powerboat qualification and is an active RYA Powerboat Instructor mainly teaching in the Solent area.

Welcome to Teen Marine UK

We are an organisation and members club aimed at providing young people with education, training and experiences in marine environments. We will be working with a number of youth organization’s and projects in London and around the UK.


We are registered as a Charity with the Charity Commission of England and Wales, Registration number 1158306

We currently own an 8m ASTEC RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) fondly named "Hot Fuzz" which was donated to us by our friends and supporters at the Royal Gibraltar Police (RGP).

She was seized by the RGP as proceeds of crime following the arrest of the occupants in Gibraltarian Territorial Waters. It is believed that it was being used for smuggling drugs and Tobacco from North Africa into Gibraltar/Spain.


Hot Fuzz has been designed and refitted to carry 10 persons and is currently based at Mercury Yacht Harbour in Hamble, Hampshire.

Being based at this location gives the groups using her access to the entire Solent. It also gives them a vast selection of locations they can visit with different activities available to them.

We welcome youth organisations to join us as members and can provide the training needed for leaders to use Hot Fuzz. We can also provide fully qualified instructors or skippers for organised days or events.
