Our assistance services
Travel lift, auto-crane and trolley
The Marina di Riposto shipyard is equipped with a 160 ton Travel Lift, which allows work to be carried out on boats of up to 35m in length and 9m in width. Purposely built by Paolo De Nicola SpA Co., it has a hydraulic levelling system, thereby avoiding any distortion to he vessels during lifting.
The shipyard is also supplied whip 40 ton semi-movable Bending autocrane with a 5x3m equaliser, which makes the lifting of small boats under 10m extremely simple. Together with the lifting equipment there is a telescopic JCB moving arm, and a 20 ton motorised trolley.
Keeling work is carried out by specialised personnel, through the use of cutting-edge equipment, such as a hydrocleaner, sodium bicarbonate peeling ( for the removal of old anti-vegetation products without harming the gel coat), airless sprayers for high quality paintwork and finishings ( giving a perfectly smooth keel), and with partners such as Boero, International and Veneziani, all leaders in the fields of anti vegetation and anti-osmosis cycles, in which the shipyard rightly claims to be specialised.
