BOATYARD & DRY STORAGE Entering new markets Italian company Cimolai Technology enjoyed a significant boost to its export business in 2016 delivering boat lift and transportation equipment to repeat customers and clients in new markets. The Caribbean proved to be a particular highlight. Carenantilles, a boatyard in Martinique, French West Indies, purchased a 440 ton hauler to complement an 80 ton Cimolai machine purchased in 2012. A 350 ton hoist was also commissioned for Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour in the BVI. European customers opted to go large. The Chamber of Commerce & Industry in Quimper Cornouaille, France, took delivery of a 400 ton hoist; L to r: A 100 ton mobile boat hauler delivered to Port Whangarei Marine Centre in New Zealand and a 350 ton hoist in service at Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour in the British Virgin Islands. the refit yard of Arpeca in Viareggio, Italy, commissioned a 560 ton machine; and Spanopoulos, a Greek shiprepair business, put a third Cimolai 820 ton mobile hoist to work at its extensive superyacht yard. Cimolai was also able to make inroads into the New Zealand market. Port Whangarei Marine Centre became a new customer last year with the purchase of a 100 ton mobile boat hauler and in July this year Cimolai is scheduled to install a 350 ton machine for a new marine servicing facility at Sulphur Point, Tauranga. The unit was ordered by Tauranga City Council. The company hints at further ongoing projects in New Zealand and Australia and has ambitions for the marina and refit yard market throughout Oceania.
