"Red Undies", A 38' Lightwave sailing catamaran offering charter cruises in Sydney Harbour, was recently hauled out at Gold Coast Marine Centre with their Model 45 Sea-Lift. GCMC can be found at one of the finest marina precincts in the World, located in Coomera which is South of Brisbane on Australia's Gold Coast.
Research proves boats fare better on dry land during a storm. In fact, a study by MIT after hurricane Gloria found that boats stored ashore were far less likely to have been wrecked than boats stored in the water (Boat US, 2009).
The Sea-Lift is the worlds fastest self propelled hydraulic haul out trailer. Using a beavertail style trailer enables the Sea-Lift to be loaded up for transport to the face of a pending storm in under 10 minutes, with no other lifting equipment needed. Once onsite, a Sea-Lift can haul out a 240 slip marina in as fast as 60 hours.
The potential to contract with with multiple marinas during storm season enables an entrepreneur the ability to perform a needed service to under served markets. The slide show below illustrates the Sea-Lift trailer loading process for transportation.
