New lift in Newport

ADVERTISEMENT

Newport Shipyard put to work its new 500-ton Travelift, the first lift of this size in New England, said Jason Johnson, North American sales manager for Marine Travelift.



The lift replaces the yard’s 300-ton lift, which has found a new home in Guaymas, Mexico, a fishing village on the west coast of the Sea of Cortez. The yard still has its 100-ton lift.



The wheels all turn independently to steer the lift in five modes including crab and carousel.



Capt. Donald and Mate Natalie Hannon of M/Y Sea Star were among several captains and shipyard personnel who got a demonstration of the lift in late June.
