Two Yamaha outboards, one Mariner outboard and a Suzuki outboard were all stolen from Yarmouth Marine Services last Thursday, alongside a boat cover, two batteries and a control panel in what is said to be a highly organised theft.

Officers from Hampshire Constabulary’s Marine Unit are investigating the theft under Project Kraken and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward by phoning 101.
