Swans Marina – Pickering Haul-Out 2012


Despite the overcast skies and mist in the air, Swans Marina had a very successful day in hauling out 25 boats from our marina in Pickering. With the help of an enormous, 300T crane from Amherst Cranes, we thrilled the crowds of spectators along Liverpool Road with a spectacular show when we lifted two very large and heavy powerboats: a 65′ Viking and a 58′ Viking Sport Fish, each yacht tipping the scales at over 71,000 pounds! The drizzle continued over the course of our operation, but we persevered and completed the haul-out of another 23 boats ranging from 22′ to 35′ including many sailboats with their masts still up!

We might sell tickets for Launch 2013!
