GMS General Marine Serviceshas many years’ experience supplying and fitting MarQuipt’s range of davits and cranes.

They are available in various configurations, capacities and reaches, with a range of functions, such as lift, slew and extend, powered by 110v or 230v AC power or on-board hydraulics. The smallest is manually slewed and suitable for lifting a jet-ski or dinghy, and the largest is remotely operated and capable of lifting a large twin engine tender.

MarQuipt has recently released fold-under extensions suitable for increasing the reach of non-telescoping Tender-Lift and Low-Profile Series davits and cranes. A fold-under extension can support higher loads than a slip-on extension, and it will fold out of the way beneath the boom when not required. Commonly used to lift small personal water craft over an existing tender, boom extensions are also popular for reaching engine room hatches and for lowering a spare propeller over the stern.

GMS General Marine Services sells and services the MarQuipt range of sea stairs, ladders and boarding platforms.
