The all-new, one-of-a-kind forklift can lift boats up to 15m (49ft) in length with up to three outboard engines. Following the success of its first drystack, the marina opened a second premium, fully-covered drystack earlier this year and worked closely with the Wiggins Lift team in California to develop the new machine. “Royal Phuket Marina is the marina of choice for many luxury sailing and motor yachts and we saw the need for professional drystack and lifting facilities catering to powerboats in the 10 to 50ft [3 to 15m] range – something that wasn’t being catered for in Phuket,” said Royal Phuket Marina chairman Gulu Lalvani. In addition to the size and weight specifications, the forklift has been fitted with a number of preventative maintenance technologies as well as HD forward-facing cameras and remote control mast operation. With two drystacks, hardstand space and wet berths, the marina now has capacity for 216 boats up to 35m (115ft) in length and is served by two Wiggins Bulls and a 50 ton boat hoist. Galvani confirms that since the introduction of the second drystack the marina has seen an increase in enquiries, particularly from owners in Singapore, Hong Kong, China, India and Malaysia. E: Wiggins partners with XL Lifts XL Lifts, a specialist in zero and low emission forklifts, is partnering with Wiggins Lift Company to distribute the Wiggins Marina eBull (see Marina World November/December 2018) west of the Mississippi River (excluding Texas) and in the Great Lakes region. Taylor Machine Works will continue to distribute Wiggins marina products in all other regions. Wiggins director of sales, Micah McDowell, commented: “We are excited to work with our dealer XL Lifts to help make the next generation of green marinas a reality. Marinas no longer need to choose between high-performance and energy-efficient forklifts; they can now have them both.” “Wiggins is once again leading the charge in marina forklift innovation,” added XL Lifts president, Mike Marzahl. “The new Marina eBull will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and sound pollution while providing marinas and boatyards with the horsepower required to run their operations.” 66 - January/February 2019
