Michigan yard buys

Michigan yard buys hydraulic trailer Canadian company Kropf Industrial, the manufacturer of Conolift boat moving equipment, has delivered an SP-100 self-propelled hydraulic trailer (below) to ME Yacht Restoration, a service and storage provider located in Holland, Michigan, USA. The robust hydraulic trailer will be used to launch and retrieve vessels weighing up to 100 tons on a slipway. BOAT MOVING & YARD EQUIPMENT The diesel-powered unit with front and rear-wheel drive and 180° front steering provides reliable service and exceptional manoeuvrability. The trailer features a frame that expands hydraulically in width, frame lift and hydraulic arms, and a hydraulically raised and lowered engine compartment for deep-water operations. All functions are controlled from a radio remote control unit. The trailer gives ME Yacht Restoration the capacity to launch and retrieve a wide range of vessels safely and efficiently and it was a crucial resource in the development of its new service and storage facility. This includes a new launch ramp and a building with 70,000ft² (6,503m²) of space. The trailer’s flexible design allows it to be adjusted to handle a wide range of vessel types and sizes, and the frame lift provides for simple lift and set operations. ME Yacht Restoration is an experienced and highly reputable company providing repairs, service, upgrades and storage to boats of all types and sizes. The company employs a range of skilled tradespeople, enabling it to provide a full range of services while maintaining control of the timelines and budget of each project. E: Seaview opts for bigger hoist Towards the end of 2017, Italian manufacturer Boat Lift delivered an 80 ton hoist to the long-established Seaview Boatyard in Seattle. And the company received a further boost to its US order book early this year by delivering a 110 ton hoist to Hurricane Cove Marina in Florida. Seaview Boatyard, founded in 1973 at Shilshole Bay Marina as a haul-out facility, has continuously expanded. Its owners now operate three full service yards in Washington State’s Puget Sound area and have created one of the largest and busiest boatyard companies on the west coast. Renowned for deep environmental commitment, Seaview was among the first in the state to become a Certified Leadership Clean Boatyard by the Clean Boating Foundation. When replacing its 50 ton hoist in Seaview West with an 80 ton machine, the yard benefited from a range of Boat Lift options and features, including extended upper beam for handling sailboats. The machine comes with Boat Lift’s remote assistance system enabling diagnostics, calibration, testing and major operations to be conducted by the company’s technical office team in Italy. This minimises potential downtime and guarantees the machine is always functioning at its optimum level. E: - March/April 2018 21
