Derecktor of Florida has announced the delivery of the first components for their new 820 metric ton (900 short ton) mobile boat hoist. The lift, fabricated by Cimolai Technology in Italy, will be the largest mobile unit in Florida and the second largest in the USA. The installation is expected to be operational by September 15th, 2012.
The yard's existing 500 ton lift and transfer system is no longer adequate and the company has embarked on this significant upgrade to meet the demands of a growing global market. The new mobile boat hoist will permit up to eight superyachts to be blocked ashore at any given time, more than doubling the existing capacity.
The new 820 metric ton (900 short ton) Cimolai hoist will provide South Florida marine interests and the world's superyacht community with a haul-out and service capability close to the epicenter of the industry.
