Which are the precautions that must be taken for the haul-out procedure?

Weather conditions can affect the hauling out and launching procedures. In high wind conditions there is a possibility to re-schedule either for the day after or for the day prior to the programmed date according to our availability and your plans.

More specifically, we are able to haul-out and launch a boat up to 6bfs (north – northeast winds) without any problem. It depends on the wave swell and not of the force of the wind speed.

In general in order not to face any problems with the hauling-out and launching operations, we will get in touch 3 to 4 days prior to the hauling-out/launching procedure in order to proceed with the operation.

In rare circumstances the process can be completed with the absence of the owner.

Why did we choose the Trailer over the Travel Lift?

We decided to purchase Roodberg Hydraulic Boat Trailer instead of a travel lift because except from the fact that it has been designed to launch and recover boats on a slipway, transport the boats over land and park them in the storage area.

It has an open U-frame design, including hydraulically operated variable width that takes the total boat way under control, which makes it the world’s fastest & safest way to handle boats.

It uses the hydraulic facility of the pulling vehicle for all functions of the boat trailer. The boats are supported on large soft pads to give maximum comfort to the hull and it does not apply any pressure to the boat in contrast with the belts of the travel lift.

The frame and the pads are independently adjustable in the height, to keep the boat horizontal and vertical under all circum- stances. The hydraulic cylinders are specially designed and manufactured by Roodberg and all lifting cylinders are manufactured including built-in safety valves. Roodberg trailers are used around the world more than 70 year of experience.

Please note marinas & boatyard around the world which use the same system.
