BOAT LIFT trailer – first in UK

BOAT LIFT trailer – first in UK 22/06/2017

Here at Kingston Marine Boatyard in East Cowes we have just taken delivery of a new self-propelled boat mover, the first trailer of its kind in the UK from Italian brand BOAT LIFT. The boat mover has a maximum lift capacity of 30 tonnes with multi-directional, 90° steering on all four wheels that enables side crab steering and makes the trailer immensely manoeuvrable. Powered by a 38hp Yanmar engine, the boat mover is also self-levelling. The unit will radically reduce transit times from the hoist dock area to the main yard, increasing efficiency and throughput, which will take further strides as the new custom-built cradles arrive this month and throughout the summer. Cowes read more
