With 2.8m (9ft) diameter wheels and measuring 12m (39ft) high and 14m (46ft) wide, it towers over the newly completed additional slipway in the superyacht facility and is on track to begin lifting in January 2020. Rhino complements 70 tonne and 100 tonne Marine Travelift hoists and a 45 tonne Hydraulic Sealift. It will work in the new superyacht yard, which has 40,000m² (430.556ft²) of concrete hardstand, work bays for superyachts up to 50m (164ft), 18 massive individual refit sheds, captains’ and owners’ lounge and a 75m (246ft) superyacht berth option, all within a clean, green environment. “There is nothing comparable in Australia and, most likely, the world,” says general manager Shane Subichin. “The environmental initiatives, including water filtration and large tracts of bio gardens are unique.” E: Kropf Kropf Industrial Kropf also Industrial also manufactures supplies also supplies a full line a full line Conolift of hydraulic of hydraulic boat boat trailers, boat as trailers, and well as well as mobile steel boat tube hoists steel floating tube with dock floating capacities systems dock systems and and from floating 3 Kropf – 100 breakwaters. floating Industrial tons. breakwaters. also manufactures Conolift hydraulic boat trailers and mobile boat hoists with capacities from 3 – 100 tons. 888.480.3777 888.480.3777 888.480.3777 888.480.3777 - November/December 2019 69
