Annual Inspections and Regular Maintenance are Critical for Holding Value
STURGEON BAY, WI (March 11, 2015) – Marine Travelift Inc. announced today that Jolly Harbour Marina in Antigua has purchased a new 75 BFM II mobile boat hoist. This particular machine was most recently on display at the Miami International Boat Show in February.
Conveniently located on Antigua’s leeward side, this full-service marina provides 155 new concrete berths, storage for 200 boats, a dedicated cradle yard, and large work area for engine maintenance and repair, yacht painting, carpentry, and duty-free fueling services. The facility lies just 20 minutes from the island’s capital city of St. John’s, and it provides easy access to customs, immigration and Port Authority services.
Not only has the longtime Marine Travelift customer added the new 75-ton unit to its operation, it has received top dollar for their existing 70-ton mobile boat hoist, which was manufactured in 1985. According to Jason Johnson, Marine Travelift’s sales manager, there are two major reasons for this.
“For a machine to remain in excellent condition after 30 years of continuous use and regular wear and tear, Jolly Harbour clearly has put extra TLC into it,” he said. “That means the staff stayed up to date with routine maintenance, and they scheduled annual inspections with our factory-trained technicians.”
In an annual inspection, Marine Travelift technicians thoroughly analyze the machine and make recommendations for necessary service. Once the owner has followed through with that necessary maintenance and any scheduled repairs, the machine will be considered factory-certified.
“That gives boat owners added confidence in your operation, and help to attract valuable new customers who seek a high level of quality when it comes to service, and it will ensure that your machine will hold its value when the time comes to sell,” Johnson explained. “And, it likely will sell very quickly.”
