Fenwicks are pleased to announce the addition of a new state of the art Straddle Carrier for the shipyard, commissioned in August 2017. After many years of reliability and good service from the previous jolly green giant, we have invested in a new Crib Point Engineering 50 ton lift.

This new machine incorporates a number of features developed between Crib Point and Fenwicks Marina. As an existing customer with nearly three decades of operational knowledge, we collaborated with the manufacturer to design a super straddle carrier.
The most obvious feature is the fully remote control aspect of this machine, allowing the operator to move around the machine to gain better visibility and access when setting a vessel on the hardstand.


• The big lifter and launcher
• 50 tonne capacity
• Accommodates vessels up to 20 metres
• Positions large vessels on the hardstand
