How to weigh a boat

Swan 48 Lift Swan 48 Lift 2

06 April 2015

At the end of March, Fambridge Yacht Haven was tasked with assisting a surveyor in weighing a Swan 48 so the boat's racing rating could be calculated.

Having moved the Swan 48 out from her winter storage position with our travel hoist, she was then positioned next to a 100ton crane. In front of a growing crowd of curious onlookers, the crane lifted the Swan using a single point lift until she was free of the hoist slings before calibrating the load cell to record the exact weight.

Once placed back in the slings, the Swan was launched off as normal, ready to commence spring and summer racing.

We wish the owners all the best with their racing schedule and thanks to the surveyor for their diligence during the process.
