French shipyard gets 400-ton lift

ADVERTISEMENT

French refit shipyard JFA Yachts has expanded its Concarneau harbor facility in northwestern France to include a 400-ton Travelift that can haul yachts up to 135 feet. It also has two marine flat-bed trolleys of 200-ton capacity each.

The new equipment will allow for more flexibility and a quicker blocking process, according to the company. The yard is also fitted with a 2,000-ton Syncrolift and a 130m drydock. With access of 5m in the channel at low tide, the yard is accessible for short services, winter maintenance and larger refits.
