Ships Ahoy – Nautical Movements

Mechanical Movements have been using their crane lifting expertise to move privately owned boats within the canal basin in Gravesend, Kent.

We used our 55tonne Liebherr mobile crane to carefully relocate this 20ft sailing yacht, weighing in at 3600kg. To protect the integrity of the vessel and prevent it from being crushed, our team employed specialist lifting equipment. Being lighter than our usual lifting gear, it reduced the overall weight of the lift, which also helped us to achieve a greater lifting radius within the confined crane area.

We have successfully completed quite a few of these manoeuvres, allowing the owners to make the most of their summer holidays.
