product review 2016 Boat Service Lift enables the yard operator to work on a vessel hull or its propulsion system without using up valuable land space. What was new in 2016? Every year sees the introduction of new products and services in the marina sector and 2016 proved no exception. Carol Fulford gives an overview of some product news highlights. Breakwaters, docks and platforms • SF Marina expanded its heavy-duty breakwater pontoon portfolio with even bigger and heavier units suitable for mooring superyachts. The new pontoon design allows for cast-in service tanks and boasts a high degree of engineering for elements such as connectors. The breakwater units can be configured to suit any application requiring substantial freeboard and heavy vehicle access. The company also continued to focus on its new lighter weight basalt fibre reinforced floats, SF X-line and SF Prodock, which were introduced in 2014/15. • In the USA, International Marine Floatation Systems (IMFS) designed an attenuator for a 36-slip marina at Rosario Resort & Spa on Orcas Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. IMFS built the 700-ton structure, which was engineered with a concrete base to resist any torsional wave impact. It features just one connector joint and is moored using a Seaflex flexible mooring system. • An innovative new portable floating dock system, developed and manufactured by Bellingham Marine, not only made an impressive debut at the 2016 Miami International Boat Show but also secured an Innovation Award from the National Marine Manufacturers’ Association (NMMA) and Boat Writers International (BWI). The system includes a number of features that make the docks easy to install, anchor, run utilities through, remove, transport and store. On the docks • Rolec marked the anniversary of its 25th year in the marina services industry with the launch of the Quantum pedestal, an evolution of the company’s incredibly popular Classic range. Over 2,000 units were sold worldwide in the 12 months following its first UK installation at Haslar Marina in Portsmouth, the largest marina in Dean & Reddyhoff’s portfolio. The company ordered 150 anodised aluminium pedestals as part of a £1.5 million refurbishment project. Rolec’s second major launch for 2016 was BerthMaster Online; a marina management system that allows boat owners to manage and pay for their electricity and water services by mobile phone. Haslar Marina was once again the pioneer UK customer. • Australia-based M-Tech built on the success of its long-standing XL pedestal by introducing a new ‘alu panel’ high gloss finish. The option was snapped up by Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron, Blairgowrie, Victoria for a major 110-berth extension. The customer ordered 77 XL marina service pedestals, with outlets ranging CleatlessDock keeps lines safe and secure, maintains a tidy appearance on the dock and eliminates trip hazards. Spanish marina kept its stars The International Marine Certification Institute (IMCI) put its revised marina certification criteria into action in 2016. One of the first awards was made to Marina Ibiza, which retained its 5 Blue Stars. Located on Ibiza’s ‘golden mile’ with the best views of the old town (a world heritage site), Marina Ibiza has become a serious destination for large yachts. It boasts modern installations, offers an exclusive entertainment programme and the marina team provides top level customer service. Aqualuma US merged with Tides Marine The Florida-based US division of Aqualuma merged with Tides Marine. Former Aqualuma US vice president of sales and marketing, Alexandra Bader, was named president of the new Aqualuma division within Tides Marine. A Tides Marine subsidiary, Tides Marine International, is the European distributor for the Aqualuma product range. The companies have enjoyed a longstanding relationship. Ingemar expansion Italian company Ingemar significantly enlarged its production facilities at its Casale sul Sile factory to help meet large pontoon contracts, especially from Middle East countries. The investment was essential to house large modular castings for the manufacture of breakwaters up to 20m x 4m x 2.4m (65.6ft x 13ft x 7.8ft). - Suppliers & Services 2017/2018 5
