PRODUCTS, SERVICES & PEOPLE SoCal marina rebuilds with hoist dock Boat owners in the southern California region now have a new boat servicing option with the installation of a 100 ton travel lift pier at The BoatYard at Marina del Rey. The new Marine Travelift machine has opened the facility up to a much larger market that includes fishing boats and catamarans. The lift sits on one of three new fixed concrete piers built by Bellingham Marine. The piers have 35 ton, 100 ton and 135 ton capacities. Bellingham also built the new 114-slip marina with new concrete floating docks, aluminium gangways and modern dockside utilities. The majority of the original concrete guide piles were retained. Construction took place in phases, one dock at a time, so as to enable the majority of the boaters to stay in the marina during the rebuild. E: E: Al Dar Marine worked with PMS Turkey to develop a unique concept of mini private docks for its Pearl Qatar beach villas. Each dock is customised to suit the owner’s needs and usually comprises three jetski moorings, a boatlift and a 50m² (538ft²) outdoor dining area. The concept is in high demand and is much appreciated by the Pearl Qatar Authority as it gives owners immediate private access to their vessels and reduces the pressure on slipways. E: First leisure craft haul-out in Indonesia Medana Bay Marina on the island of Lombok in Indonesia has opened a new haul-out facility with a Roodberg HBC38 hydraulic trailer. The machine was delivered just before the series of earthquakes tragically erupted in July/August last year, which delayed installation and tests until the end of November. The facility, which is the first recreational craft haul-out in Indonesia capable of handling keeled yachts, fills a significant market gap between Darwin, Australia and Singapore. Also first-of-kind in the region is the Roodberg trailer, which can handle weights up to 38 tonnes and vessels draft of 2.5m (8ft). Medana Bay Marina put the machine to work immediately, successfully hauling out two monohulls in December. All vessels lifted can undergo a variety of maintenance work including painting, body work and repairs on site, and can be safely stored on hardstand. A family-run business that has hosted the Sail Indonesia Rally since 2009, the marina offers a beautiful hotel, beachside restaurant and function hall, and is fully equipped for yachting services. In addition to the slipway and haul-out, it has 15 moorings and six full service berths. Fuel, boat cleaning, repairs and LPG refills are all available and long term mooring facilities are offered.
