Pacific Marine Center has a new mobile boat hoist from Marine Travelift.

Marine Travelift said it delivered a 200CII mobile boat hoist to Pacific Marine Center for use at its facility in Anacortes, Wash.

Pacific Marine Center is a full-service boatyard handling commercial fishing boats, tugs and pleasure boats.

The boatyard wanted to accomplish two major goals with the purchase of the new boat hoist, said Dave Marshall, sales manager at Kendrick Equipment, the certified Marine Travelift distributor for the Northwest region of North America.

“The customer wanted to penetrate new markets and attract an entirely new class of boat to Anacortes,” Marshall said in a statement. “With the Marine Travelift mobile boat hoist they can pick full capacity with the slings in any position, allowing them to target the shorter and heavier fishing boats they haven’t been able to haul in the past.”

Expanding its capabilities and targeting these specific size fishing boats is also allowing the boatyard to accomplish a second goal.

“Another goal they had was to build a fishing vessel repair business in Anacortes, a gateway to the Pacific Ocean,” Marshall said. “The new mobile boat hoist will allow them to service a strong fleet of commercial vessels that operate throughout Alaska, Canada and the San Juans.”
