Travel Lift and Hardstand

The Mana Cruising Club provides a 30-tonne (70,000 lbs) travel lift and cradles . An anti-foul area with water blaster and sump are also provided to ensure the ecologically sound disposal of residue. Club members receive priority and a discount.

There are a variety of services available that utilise the travel lift, from haul out's for a quick scrub prior to that race, to lift and hold to allow anodes to be checked or transducers to be cleaned, through to the lift out to a cradle. Both the travel lift and cradles are well utilised throughout the year especially in the months leading up to the Christmas cruising season.

Our travel lift operator is John McKenzie and he can be contacted on Ph 027 753 4532

New bio security rules introduced recently by the Marlborough district Council MDC affect all moored boat owners. A summary of the fouling levels acceptable can be downloaded/viewed here.
