BOAT MOVING & YARD EQUIPMENT Marsden Cove completes haul-out facility with Roodberg trailer Situated in the centre of a canal housing development, Marsden Cove Marina has 230 berths and a range of waterfront retail outlets. Marsden Cove Marina in Whangarei, New Zealand, has taken delivery of a Roodberg HBT80-VEL hydraulic trailer to complete its new multi-million dollar haul-out and maintenance hardstand facility. When initially assessing options to include haul-out as part of its hardstand facility, the marina owners Marsden Maritime Holdings planned to purchase an 80 tonne straddle carrier and an 80 tonne yard transporter. The latter would enable the operator to move boats along a short road to a hardstand location away from view of the marina and the residential area. But, taking the advice of Greg Butchart of Butchart Marine Services – the regional representative for Roodberg – the marina opted instead to purchase a single machine that would fulfil both these functions. The exceptionally robust Roodberg HBT80 hydraulic trailer can haul out vessels of all hull shapes directly from the water up to a maximum draft of 3.5m (11.5ft) and transport them to the hardstand in one movement. The capital investment was significantly less than the original plan, as will be maintenance, labour and operating costs. The marina placed its order in October 2016 and took delivery in mid- 2017. The trailer offers many advantages. The hydraulic pad system is softer on vessel hulls, allowing for the proper distribution of weight as individual pads can be manoeuvred separately. No parts need to be x-rayed or tested prior to use and no load testing is required. The trailer design allows for a quicker turnaround because vessels can be washed on the trailer (pads can be dropped individually), instead of needing to be placed on the hardstand. The ‘plug and play’ system allows the trailer to be connected to the haul-out tractor. If the latter breaks down, it is easy to get a replacement up and running within the hour. Replacement parts, including tyres, are easily purchased and Roodberg offers technical service and assistance from both the Netherlands, where the company is based, and from Butchart in Australia. The trailer is supplied with remote control to operate all hydraulic functions, including manual back-up, so that the operator is able to make adjustments to the trailer from any position. This differs from some other trailers, which require manual operation from a fixed position. Butchart supplied the marina with a set of catamaran beams, enabling it to haul out vessels The new Roodberg HBT80 hydraulic trailer (left and below) transports vessels of all hull shapes directly from the water to the hardstand. The machine’s hydraulic pad system is softer on vessel hulls. www.marinaworld.com - March/April 2018 25
