Sea Lift

  • First Sea-Lift in Russian Federation

    Posted on Sep 30, 2009

    Port Dubrovka, located on the Neva River in Kirovsk between St. Petersburg and Lake Ladoga, recently have commissioned a Model 45 Sea-Lift for use with their new dry storage facility project underway. Port Dubrovka will now be the first in the Russian Federation to offer a full service haul out facility to accommodate boats up to 65 feet or 20 meters in a sheltered environment during the harsh winter months.  Multiple services will be available for customers who no longer must endure traveling to Finland to keep their boats safe and warm.

  • How To Beat A Hurricane

    Posted on Sep 11, 2009

    Research proves boats fare better on dry land during a storm. In fact, a study by MIT after hurricane Gloria found that boats stored ashore were far less likely to have been wrecked than boats stored in the water (Boat US, 2009).
    The Sea-Lift is the worlds fastest self propelled hydraulic haul out trailer.  Using a beavertail style trailer enables the Sea-Lift to be loaded up for transport to the face of a pending storm in under 10 minutes, with no other lifting equipment needed.  Once onsite, a Sea-Lift can haul out a 240 slip marina in as fast as 60 hours.
    The potential to contract with with multiple marinas during storm season enables an entrepreneur the ability to perform a needed service to under served markets.  The slide show below illustrates the Sea-Lift trailer loading process for transportation.

  • Planning Projects in a Down Economy

    Posted on Jan 28, 2009

    In the most recent issue of Marina World Tim Mason describes key reasons to continue to forge forward in project preparation even in down economies. 

    In the midst of a significant global economic downturn, many marina owners are wary of taking on capital projects. However, deteriorating infrastructure will not pause until it is convenient for the owner to pay for repairs and upgrades. Even if a marina owner isn’t ready to reconstruct or expand, he or she can advance planning, feasibility studies (including pro formas), design and begin the permitting process. Facilities that aren’t planning any major changes and have kept up with maintenance could also benefit from an operations audit or pro forma ‘tune up’. In many areas, obtaining approvals for a new marina or a major renovation/expansion can take from six months to two or more years. An owner who postpones a necessary renovation until the economy shows signs of improvement may have to wait two or more years before construction can start! On the other hand, marina owners who have done the legwork for a renovation or new project will be able to move quickly to construction when they are ready. The prepared owner puts himself in a strong competitive position. For projects that are approved and have financing, construction in a depressed economy offers owners the savings of lower fuel costs, surplus materials and contractor availability.
