LMC to increase lift capacity

Lauderdale Marine Center in Fort Lauderdale is scheduled to begin hauling boats on two new lifts on Aug. 15.

A 220-short-ton capacity Cimolai lift, named Brutus, will be able to hoist a maximum beam of 30 feet and approximately 130 feet in length.

The 485-short-ton capacity Cimolai lift, known as The Beast, will be able to hoist a maximum beam of 34.5 feet and approximately 180 feet in length.

“We took a hard look at the types of vessels coming into the area every year, and realized that we were under-serving the market between about 300 and 500 tons,” said Doug West, president of LMC. “The decision to increase our hauling capacity made sense once we understood that. The investments made with the upgraded lifts, Riverbend re-development and our power upgrades reinforce our commitments to the industry.”

“We spent over 6 weeks on the construction of the two lifts, and the Cimolai team worked hand-in-hand with us throughout the entire process,” said Eric Hruska, general manager of LMC. “Everything from delivery to the training of our employees on the new machines was carried out professionally.”
