Mike Eaton’s has over 30 years in the composite boat manufacturing industry and through his direction, over 200 sail boats and power boats (both commercial and leisure sectors) were successfully launched. While holding a passion for sailing and actively competing, Mike Eaton has kept well within sailing and racing communities. Maintaining contact with Seaquest owners and still racing the iconic boats, Mike’s activities has facilitated Eaton Marine to be in the front scene of sailing yacht manufacturing in the UAE.
Founding Seaquest Ltd. in 1993, Mike and Dawn Eaton set up their first factory based in Poole, Dorset, United Kingdom. Building a range of sailing mono-hulls between 32ft to 45ft, Seaquest utilised world-renowned yacht designers to the likes of Reichel-Pugh and Stephen Jones. Designs focused on performance racing yachts while providing comfort of cruising. The brand quickly gained traction on the global markets and became popular in England, Europe, Scandinavia’s, Australia and the U.S.A.
In 1994, Seaquest’s SJ320 was launched and immediately began winning races in the same year such as the Cowes week, which was won in five consecutive years. In the next years, the new ranges RP36 and Prima-38 went on to win prestigious sailing awards such as the U.S. ‘Best Race Yacht of The Year’, RYA ‘Yacht of the Year’ and Dubai ‘Yacht Builder of the Year’ (during two consecutive years).
In 2005, MKM Commercial Holdings LLC invested into Seaquest and moved their manufacturing to Dubai with the purpose of increasing the regions sailing and racing activities. The move was to a larger facility with a plan to increase the manufacturing capability with new, larger projects on the horizon.
In 2013 Mike stablished Eaton Marine. In a change to previous manufacturing to adapt to the local market demand Eaton Marine focused on providing RINA classed high speed diesel powered ferries to the growing commercial sector in the region.
