Bay Ship & Yacht Expands Facility with Rolls-Royce Syncrolift

Thursday, November 16, 2006
Bay Ship & Yacht, Co. recently compleed their Rolls-Royce Marine Syncrolift installation. The addition of the Syncrolift aims to improve the customer experience by enabling more flexible scheduling for major refits, hull and propulsion system maintenance and extended-stay repairs to superyachts. This installation positions Bay Ship & Yacht as the only shipyard on the California coast to offer this type of lift and transfer system. Bay Ship & Yacht’s Syncrolift is equipped with four full-length railway tracks which transit from sea onto dry land. Modular cradles support the vessel’s hull and are equipped with four-wheel rail dollies to facilitate transfer. Once lifted out of the water, the vessel is rolled ashore on transfer rails to its pre-assigned berth. Several outside berths will be ready for service in November, each with a capacity for a 62 meter (200 ft.) vessel. Each berth is equipped with its own Dedicated Service Center (DSC). The DSC provides each berth with its own host of services including compressed air, cooling water, full electric distribution (including 50Hz and 60Hz services), telephone and high-speed internet access and waste water disposal facilities.
