Checkmate Slings Lift A Super Yacht
At Checkmate Flexible Engineering, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide bespoke products and custom solutions to clients. Our can-do attitude sets us apart from the rest of the industry, giving us the edge when it comes to design innovation – and it’s one of the reasons our clients come back time and time again for everything from dunnage bags, to webslings.
Our innovative websling designs secured us a new client recently – with great results, thanks to our lifiting division. After being given a tight deadline to manufacture and deliver webslings, the team developed a solution to lift a 51m long, 400 tonne Trinity yacht that needed to be loaded in Florida and transported to the Middle East. It was not a simple task, and required specialist engineering knowledge and experience to get the job done.
A job well done
Our lifting devision got the request turned around quickly, meaning our client was able to move the yacht swiftly. Our custom solution included a total of sixteen quadplex side-by-side polyester webslings. These were delivered to the customer – and designer of the life – Delphini of Port Tilbury. Delphini was also responsible for the design and manufacture of the equalising plates, spreaders, and cradling system.
