Cobb’s Quay Marina tackles one of its largest lifts
Cobb’s Quay Marina has overcome one of its largest lifts to date a 60 tonne, 25 metre metal hull yacht which had to be lifted back into the water.
The two-day lift required the services of a 1,000-tonne crane, along with six support vehicles and was managed by the team from Baldwins Crane Hire, with support from the Cobb’s Quay crew.
“This is probably one of the largest single point lifts every completed at MDL Marina’s,” said David Wilson, manager at Cobb’s Quay Marina.
“It was a major project that required significant planning and management; we had to close the yard to traffic and the public. Everything went according to plan and this impressive lift was completed to schedule.”
The yacht in question, the Fair Lady, has been berthed at Cobb’s Quay since 1976. A new owner has committed to giving the boat a new lease of life and is transporting her via tug boat for a re-fit in the Solent.
This marathon lift was captured in video footage via drone by FlyPic.
