$1 MILLION DOLLAR INVESTMENT WILL BRING HAUL-OUT COSTS DOWN
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.
