Marina members undergo hoist training 

We are pleased to announce that three new members of the Universal Marina team will be undertaking hoist training in 2019!

Tim, Andy and Antonio, who currently work in the Marina Operations Team, will become the marina’s newest hoist operators, and can help you with all your boat hoisting needs.

The addition of three new hoist operators will increase flexibility in and around the marina.

We are also putting further investment into our drystack training. Tim and Antonio will also be carrying out certification on our new dry stack forklift further bolstering our ranks in preparation for another busy summer season on the dry stack.



New forklift at marina from Monday 14 January 

Attention Drystack customers!

Our new dry stack forklift is due to be delivered to the marina on Monday 14 January.

The forklift will be built on site, and during the construction process our team will be unable to operate throughout the dry stack area. Should you require a dry stack movement for this date please book in by 12pm Sunday 13th.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Normal service will resume with our new machine in place on Tuesday 15th January.
