Nautical Structures Launches New Lightweight, Automated DavitMar 11, 2009 LARGO, FLORIDA (USA) - At the touch of a button, the new, lightweight TECH-1000-2 automated hydraulic davit from Nautical Structures can handle a working load up to 1,000 pounds in all boom positions aboard boats and yachts from 40 to 140 feet.
Weighing in at just 165 pounds, the all-aluminum TECH-1000-2 is 35 percent lighter and stronger than comparable davit designs and priced at just under $US10,000, complete with mounting standpipe and hydraulic power unit. "This is a true value design for small to mid-sized yachts that gives yacht dealers and owners a real cost-benefit advantage," said Bob Blue, Nautical Structures sales manager.
The TECH-1000-2 features a fully faired and painted finish to match the paint color of the yacht. Hydraulic slew (optional) boom-luff and linear winch provide smooth and quiet performance. The boom stows in an eight-foot or nine-foot design and reaches full boom-length potential under full rated load capacity.
Founded in 1986, Nautical Structures manufactures more than 40 models of high-performance davits and yacht cranes for the world luxury yacht market, ranging in capacity from 800 to over 25,000 pounds.
