The new hoist is the fifth that Marine Travelift has sold to the Boat Yard of Marina Del Rey, Calif.

Marine Travelift said it recently delivered a mobile boat hoist with a lifting capacity of 100 metric tons to the Boat Yard of Marina Del Rey, Calif.

Marine Travelift said the 100 BFMII is the fifth of its machines at the California yard and will allow it to open up a larger market segment along the state’s coast.

“We purchased the 100 BFMII Marine Travelift in order to service the larger and wider vessels that call Marina Del Rey their home port,” Greg Schem, president and CEO at Harbor Real Estate Group, said in a statement.

“Prior to acquiring this machine we were limited to a 60-ton machine with a 17-foot beam. This left a large segment of the market unserviceable by our boatyard. The new 100 BFMII gives us a 28-foot beam, which in turn allows us to service the larger monohulls, as well as the flourishing catamaran market.”

The California yard is a full-service boat-repair yard and marina.
