Lift Emotion BV delivers dumbwaiter

Lift-Emotion BV is an innovative company on the market of elevator design and construction onboard yachts, as well as land based installations. Currently they are working on all kinds of different elevators, but they would like to highlight an unnoticed type of lift onboard a yacht, the dumbwaiter.

A dumbwaiter is a small elevator used to transport food, wine, and other items between floors of a building. Onboard bigger yachts the owner usually wants a dumbwaiter installed between the galley and main or even sundeck.

There is a big difference between a standard building dumbwaiter and a dumbwaiter installed on a moving ship. Lift Emotion can engineer and install special dumbwaiters for the maritime environment. Our concept of dumbwaiters also allows Lift Emotion BV to have an optional Solas A0 enclosure.

For a big superyacht builder in the Netherlands Lift Emotion has delivered a dumbwaiter with a 4 mm steel casing to comply with the Solas requirements. The construction of the yacht did not allow to have a steel or double isolated aluminum trunk and therefore Lift Emotion chose for a ready to hoist in steel trunk with special Bi parting A60 doors. The assembly of the dumbwaiter was realized in the factory and the complete assembly was hoisted into the ship in one piece.
