Trailer with catamaran bunk moves multi-hulls safely Conolift by Kropf Industrial has delivered a self-propelled hydraulic trailer to MultiTech Marine’s northeast location in Edgewater, Maryland, USA. The 50 ton capacity trailer features 180° front steering, rear wheel drive assist, hydraulic frame lift and a hydraulically expanding frame. The machine is fully radio-remote control, allowing all functions to be operated from a single unit. A raised engine compartment permits deep-water operation on the ramp, maximising the utilisation of the trailer for a range of vessel designs. As MultiTech Marine’s focus is on the sale and service of catamarans, the trailer needs to be able to handle a wide range of multi-hull vessels. Conolift developed an innovative adjustable catamaran bunk system that can be added or removed from the trailer depending on whether the vessel to be moved is a multihull or monohull. The bunk system provides a wide range of adjustment to handle catamarans of various beams. Adjustable bunks can be utilised to lift under the wet bridge, or a set of swing-out bunks can be deployed to lift under the keels. A combination of hydraulic and manual adjustments allows the bunk system to be adjusted for the specific requirements of each vessel to be lifted. E: BOAT MOVING & YARD EQUIPMENT Upgrades and enhancements Boat moving specialist Swede Ship Sublift has introduced several enhancements to make its range of self-propelled boat hoists even more flexible. • The 40 ton model is now available in an upgraded version that can lift 50 tons. • Sublift 12 ton can now handle wider loads, straddling a boat cradle that is 3.3m (11ft) wide and able to handle boats up to 4.8m (16ft) wide. • A newly introduced remote control, supplied by Datek, is now standard and several older hoists have been retrofitted with the system. Sublifts are available in 12, 25, 40-50 and 90 ton versions. E: - July/August 2019 49
