Adding to its existing 60 and 75 tonne boat hoists and two cranes, SYH has recently taken delivery of a custom built, 15 tonne boat hoist.
The bespoke hoist, commissioned for SYH by marine mobile lifting specialists Wise, has a clear inside width of 4 metres and can handle boats up to 13 metres in length overall. With a wireless remote control and four wheel drive with differential locks, the new hoist will also increase security and safety when travelling up and down the slipway.
Bob Gibbon, cranage and lifting manager, comments, “The main advantage of the new 15 tonne hoist is it will allow movement of vessels above the upper limit of our previous 10 tonne hoist and below the lower remit of our existing 60 and 75 tonne hoists. It will also increase efficiency by reducing launch lead times, and will expand the number of boats we can launch or lift out during the busy spring and autumn periods.”
SYH offers the largest boat lifting and launching facilities between Bridlington in Yorkshire and the Solent on the south coast, with the capability to handle vessels from small 6m day sailors to 20m work boats. Regular boat launches include leisure and commercial craft such as RNLI Severn Class life boats and catamarans that service local offshore wind farms.
