Marine Travelift said it delivered a customized mobile boat hoist to the Newport (R.I.) Shipyard.

It is the fourth Marine Travelift unit at the Rhode Island yard. The company said the 440,000-pound capacity 200CII joins 500C (1.1 million-pound capacity), 100 BFMII (220,000-pound capacity) and 70 BFM (140,000-pound capacity) hoists at the site.

The Wisconsin-based company said the new hoist is equipped with unique features that include electronic all-wheel steering, inline eight-wheel configuration, top beam extension and a raised engine compartment.

Marine Travelift said the 200CII will provide expanded capabilities for the shipyard, allowing for the maneuvering of larger vessels in and out of its indoor service facility.

The new capability has not only expanded general operations during the boating season, but also has also provided the ability to take on larger projects during the winter months within a heated facility, the company said.
