The new mobile boat hoist gives Marina Mile Yachting Center an extra 5 metric tons of lifting capacity.

Marina Mile Yachting Center of Fort Lauderdale purchased a new 75 BFMII Marine Travelift that has a capacity of 75 metric tons.

The mobile boat hoist replaces a 34-year-old unit that had a 70-ton capacity.

“Before making our recent Marine Travelift 75 BFMII purchase we did extensive research on the entire mobile boat hoist market and Marine Travelift gave us the most overall confidence, with the well-established reputation in the U.S. and beyond,” said Marina Mile Yachting Center general manager David Hole in a statement.

“In the marine industry you see the consistent brand of Marine Travelift all over the Broward County district, and we take tremendous pride in providing our customers with a trusted product they are familiar with.”

The new BFMII model also features technological advances such as remote diagnostics and the intelligent operating system.

“Our lift crew loves the remote control. It provides the ability to walk around the load and see vessels clearly,” Hole said. “The new 75 BFMII has increased our marina’s overall safety by allowing us to have a broad view of each pick without the need to rely on operator hand signals.”
