Record breaking day for hoist crew

Hoist crew record Hoist Crew Hoist crew record 2

11 November 2014

The hoist crew have set a new record for the most boat lifts in one day at Lymington Yacht Haven.

On a typically autumnal Friday in November, the hoist crew recorded 32 hoists in one day from the waters of Lymington Yacht Haven. 

Marina Director Rupert Wagstaff commented, "The Royal Lymington Yacht Club suffered a breakdown of their crane and so to help out we block booked a large number of their X boats, Cornish Shrimpers and folkboats to come out on the same day. Due to their size and manoeuvrability, the hoist team were able to lift them quicker than normal and record a stunning number of hoists. Thanks must also go to the help we received from the boatmen at the RLymYC and the individual boat owners, I doubt we'll see the record broken anytime soon!"

There was no rest for the hoist team as bookings for yard services continue to come in thick and fast during the busy autumn period. The hoist team and record breakers include Andrew, Jason, Ben and Neil, all co-ordinated by Sharon. Meet the team.

Lymington Yacht Haven run a fully equipped boatyard offering lift out and storage ashore for boats up to 50 tonnes. Find out about our boatyard rates.
