Valencia yard to add 300-ton travel lift

ADVERTISEMENT

Spanish refit and repair yard Varadero Valencia has added a 300-ton travel lift that will hoist yachts up to 147 feet (45m) with a 29-foot (9m) beam and maximum draft of 16 feet (5m). The yard states that the new lift, expected to be operational in September, will double its capacity to hoist larger yachts, as its current travel lift can only handle up to 150 tons.

Construction of the lift will be led by Italian company Cimolai Technology.

According to the shipyard, the new travel lift is 56 feet (17.2m) long, 33 feet (10m) wide and 50 feet (15.2m) high. It has 16 wheels, eight of which are motorized. A 215hp Volvo diesel engine will lift yachts via 16 slings and four hoist-out points, three of them movable. The engine complies with Stage lV/Tier 4F regulations, according to a Varadero Valencia press release.

“The trend of ever bigger yachts was one of the key factors behind this decision,” stated Santiago Donat, the yard’s managing director, “but it was also triggered by the increasing demand of customers who want an expert refit and repair in Valencia, which offers very affordable prices and a whole host of leisure and entertainment options for crew during the works.”
