Haven Quay welcomed its new forklift truck, officially called a Hoist Neptune M150 boat handling forklift, to its premises in Mill Lane on Thursday 5th June.
The sun shone all day, as the shiny new forklift was lifted from its delivery truck and assembled. The team took two days to complete the assembly of the striking new vehicle which has been imported from Illinois in the USA.
The new forklift has a larger lifting capacity on the hoist than the older Taylor, which means that the team at Haven Quay will now be more comfortable in launching some of the biggest RIBs on the river. Neptune also has an impressive 18ft negative drop height which means that lifting on all states of the tide has become much easier.

The team at Haven Quay look forward to seeing you this summer. Just remember to call the office an hour or two in advance when you want us to launch your boat - call us on 01590 677072.
