Goliath Cranes by UK's Street Crane play their part in the building of Princess Yachts' new M-class tri-deck megayachts

Princess Yachts, luxury yacht builders, are using freestanding Goliath cranes from Street Crane Company to produce their new 30 to 40 metre M Class tri-deck yachts. The cranes, installed at the historic South Yard of the Devonport Dockyard, will allow large fabrications to be lifted, transported and accurately placed as the yachts are fitted out.



There are three cranes in use. The main manufacturing area is serviced by two mirror image Goliath cranes of 16 tonnes safe working load, each spanning 13.75 metres. These cranes have twin hoists of eight tonnes lifting capacity that can be used independently or together to give maximum load flexibility.

A 28 metres span Goliath crane with hook coverage over the whole assembly area has a single 16 tonne hoist and will share the outer running rail of the smaller Goliaths.



The Princess Yacht assembly area is protected by a lightweight space frame building. The enclosure covering the assembly bays has insufficient strength to accommodate conventional overhead cranes and freestanding gantries within the structure would have occupied valuable manufacturing space. Street Crane recommended floor running Goliath cranes, using a slim leg design to maximise hook coverage over the manufacturing area.
 to solve that problem.

Street Crane lifting equipment is used by all the major UK luxury yacht and sports boat manufacturers. In addition, they are used in marine shipyards, in submarine assembly, naval dockyards and by offshore platform builders. Engineering and fabrication companies that support the marine and ship repair industry are also extensive users of Street’s cranes and hoists.
