BOATYARD & DRY STORAGE Hoists for home and export markets With orders in progress or deliveries completed for leading UK marina chains such as MDL Marinas, Premier Marinas and Yacht Havens Group, Yorkshire-based Wise Handling continues to maintain a strong foothold on its home market. “We’ve just delivered a new machine to Troon Yacht Haven in Scotland and are working on an order for Partington Marine in Pwllheli, Wales,” managing director Barrie Sutcliffe told Marina World. Other highlights in the UK include delivery of a Wise W20 hoist with remote control (inset right) to Ridge Wharf Yacht Centre & Boat Yard on the River Frome near Poole Harbour. The company, which has 170 moorings and extensive hardstand and wintering facilities, was looking to replace its 41-year-old Wise machine; still in full working order but lacking the benefits of modern technology. Export sales have long formed an essential part of Wise Handling’s business planning, and deliveries are far reaching. “We’ve secured four more orders in France, have three machines due for commissioning in the Middle East and have hoists in build for customers in Thailand and Australia,” Sutcliffe confirmed.
