BOAT MOVING & YARD EQUIPMENT Spanish yard doubles lift capacity Spanish yard Varadero Valencia is set to double its hoisting capacity in early autumn when it puts a new 300-ton Cimolai machine into service. It has been purchased to meet the growing demand for refit and repair of large yachts. Complementing the yard’s existing 150 ton Marine Travelift, the Cimolai hoist will be 17.2m (56ft) long, 10m (33ft) wide and 15.2m (50ft) high. It will feature a total of 16 wheels, eight of which will be motorised to offer greater manoeuvrability. Power is provided by a 215hp Volvo diesel engine, which will lift yachts via 16 slings and four hoist-out points. Three of these points are movable so as to adapt to different sized vessels. The engine complies with the requirements of Stage IV/Tier 4F regulations. Varadero Valencia will be able to use the new hoist to lift out yachts of up to 45m (148ft) in length, 9m (29ft) beam and maximum draft of 5m (16ft) but the size advantage is not the only benefit. “The trend of ever bigger yachts was one of the key factors behind this decision,” says managing director Santiago Donat, “but it was Palma marina puts custom hoist to work A GH165 boat hoist from GH Motion has recently been installed in Puerto Portals in Palma, Mallorca, one of the most prestigious nautical and leisure complexes in the Mediterranean. The machine has been customised in various ways to meet specific needs: • Height below the main girder has been upgraded to take taller ships. • Four wheels instead of the standard eight have been incorporated to make it easier to enter the dock. • The machine can steer 360° when loaded enabling it to operate in reduced spaces. • A 23m (75ft) telescopic jib crane has been added for dismantling masts of competition sailboats. Puerto Portals is located in the centre of the Bay of Palma and just 16km (10mi) from the airport. It has over 650 moorings for vessels up to 60m (197ft) in length and has been dubbed a ‘millionaire’s marina’ due to its high level service and upmarket facilities. E: also triggered by the increasing demand of customers who want an expert refit and repair in Valencia, which offers very affordable prices and a whole hoist of leisure and entertainment options for crew during the works.” “We hope to grow even further to meet our customers’ requirements,” he adds.
