Crane Services

Cowes Harbour Shepards Marina has a state-of-the-art marine crane for our Dry Sailing customers. This electric hydraulic crane has an impressive lift capability and is capable of launching vessels up to 6 tonnes. It is remote control operated, and also has a man-riding capability of 500kg with a reach of 15 metres above the ground - meaning that people can be hoisted to attend to masts and rigging.
