According to a company press release, the new mobile boat hoist, can haul vessels up to 165 feet (50m), and is expected to be operational by January. The Boat Works Superyacht Yard is scheduled for an official opening in January as well. 

“The environmental initiatives, including water filtration and large tracts of bio gardens, are unique,” General Manager Shane Subichin stated. “The new facility will feature allocated work bays with a choice of 18 individual refit sheds, dedicated hardstand space, a lounge for captains and owners, a 246-foot (75m) superyacht service berth option, and 50 extra work berths.”
