Marine Travelift Introduces New Floating Boat Hoist Design

—Literature Available Marine Travelift has announced the development of a new "Floating Boat Hoist" model. The 35-toncapacity unit was designed for use in ports where conventional launching pier facilities would be impossible or not practical.

Model 35FBH is gasoline powered for adaptability to a wider variety of installation localities. Hydraulic hoist control is utilized to power a single point lift component. The new mode features unitized design to facilitate easy assembly or takedown for containerized shipping between installations.

The first of the floating boat hoist models was installed at Halifax, Nova Scotia, where it is used to haul the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron's new 12-meter America's Cup Challenger, The True North.

Marine Travelift, originator of the mobile boat hoist concept, has been producing boat hoists for over 25 years. Besides the new floating hoist, their line of mobile boat hoists ranges from 15 through 250- ton-capacity.
