Our customer visited Yacht Haven marina and during his stay encountered a problem with his generator. We attended the vessel and sorted out the generator and during our conversations we had mentioned that we had extended the existing bathing platforms and similar boats. The short bathing platform on our customer’s Aquastar restricted his enjoyment of the boat due to the awkwardness of launching his rib. We prepared a specification in conjunction with a Naval Architect to manufacture and install a purpose made GRP and teak bathing platform mounted onto a pair of hydraulic platform lifters. The platform was designed to take the weight of the rib and driver. Our customer specifically requested that the procedure of lifting him and the rib from the water could be done single handed by remote control without him actually leaving the rib.
Other works carried out during the boat stay included the installation of hydraulic bimini covers, bespoke sun loungers and beautiful internal maple floorings.
