    St. Maarten Shipyard N.V. has confirmed that an order has been placed for a 75-Ton KMI Sea-Lift, with delivery slated for spring/summer 2010. The Sea-Lift lifts a vessel, whether catamaran or monohull, from beneath, with a system of air bunks to spread the load along the whole length of the boat. St. Maarten Shipyard's Carl Vaughan is excited; the yard's estimated $1 million investment (that includes the lift and the slipway) will cut haul out time considerably, as well as costs.

  • 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.
