Your One-Stop Shop for Lifting Equipment Solutions in the Superyacht Industry

For those who have experienced boarding a superyacht, the excitement of the moment may have overshadowed the engineering marvels that made it possible. But for PTW Shipyard, a company that provides new installation, retrofit, and service for superyacht boarding equipment, the choice of the right crane, passerelle, boarding ladder, or set of davits is of paramount importance.

Gangways, in particular, should be safe and offer quick, worry-free access when boarding a superyacht. That’s why PTW Shipyard partners with Dutch engineering firms like Cramm and Feebe, who specialize in custom-built passerelles of any desired length. Additionally, the company recommends UMT Marine’s range of davits and deck cranes for any yacht size, Fuchs Cranes for German yacht builders, and Hydromar and Swissway Marine, both owned by Hydromar, for quality equipment.

We are proud to recommend Feebe, a Dutch company with 20 years of experience in building quality overhead cranes used inside the garages of the world’s largest and best-run superyachts. At PTW Shipyard, we can help you with the installation, retrofit or total refit of their products to ensure that your yacht is equipped with the latest and most reliable lifting equipment. And when it comes to maintenance and servicing, our team of skilled professionals offers a wide range of services, including regular inspections, repairs, and annual surveys to re-certify rescue and life raft cranes.

Manufacturers like Cramm, Hydromar, and Seawalk offer various types of passerelles, from non-telescopic to double telescopic, to accommodate different spaces. The extendable lorry system, in particular, offers a good space-saving solution, with the double telescopic lorry system capable of storing two lorries on top of each other, reducing the required length enormously compared to a standard lorry. This space-saving solution allows other equipment and systems to take maximum advantage of the available space on the yacht.

Lightweight construction is also a consideration for PTW Shipyard, with many of the better passerelles made from aluminum, resulting in a device with high torque stiffness, minimal bending, and a weight reduction of 25% to 35% compared to their alternatives. The fixed passerelle is ideal for docking with the stern to quay, while the rotating passerelles are handy when docking, and there is an obstacle in the way, with the slewing frame able to easily reposition the passerelle to the sides without the need to re-dock the yacht.

The superyacht industry demands the very best when it comes to lifting equipment solutions. That’s why we specialize in providing a complete range of services for yachts and superyachts, catering to their specific needs in terms of lifting equipment installations, retrofits, and maintenance.

Our team of dedicated professionals ensures that every project related to lifting equipment is executed with precision and attention to detail. We prioritize not only the functionality but also the aesthetics of each installation or retrofit, guaranteeing that the equipment will blend seamlessly with the yacht’s overall design.

We also specialize in deck cranes, an indispensable part of any yacht, for essential jobs such as loading materials, jet skis, dinghies, and provisions aboard. Our models offer ease of operation with a wide range of standard electric drives, hydraulics, and controls. We understand that cranes need to be suitable for handling stores, MOB and SOLAS purposes and should be capable of completing all functions under its full Safe Working Load (SWL) load, and in all positions.
Our expertise in garage cranes is second to none. We know that overhead cranes can be a highly functional hoisting solution aboard a yacht. Our sliding beam and slewing beam cranes are made to suit just about every situation and are designed to look as nice as possible for such a functional piece of kit, with tapering jibs and faired covers, but they are also often hidden away in tender wells.

Finally, we specialize in moveable bathing platforms, an alternative to lifting a tender or jet ski into or out of the water. Our hydraulically operated moving swim platforms are frequently built with this feature incorporated into them and the system works well on sailboats and smaller motor yachts whose overall length precludes a garage.

At PTW Shipyard, we pride ourselves on our commitment to excellence in service and craftsmanship. We have a team of experienced technicians, craftsmen, and ex-yacht crew who have a can-do attitude when it comes to problem-solving no matter what the vessel or the environment throws at them. That is why yacht owners seeking top-quality solutions for their lifting equipment needs trust us.

In conclusion, PTW Shipyard is the ultimate destination for high-quality lifting equipment solutions for superyachts. With our attention to detail, commitment to excellence, and dedication to providing the best possible service, we guarantee that you will not be disappointed with our work.
